  • Description

    Hi, I'm Davide, an 36 years old Italian guy. I'm currently in Turin, Italy, after 6 years travelling around the world.
    I lived 2.5 years in London, UK, and then one year in Vietnam ( Hoi An ), one year in New Zealand ( Wellington ) and one year in Mexico (Tulum and San Cristobal De Las Casas ).
    I speak Italian (mother tongue), English (fluently) and Spanish (fluently).
    In February I'm going to Quebec, my goal is learn French.
    I've spent 30 years of my life in my hometown, Turin in Italy. I started to work when I was 16 and I went to live by myself when I was 21. In Italy I worked as a pastry chef ( 1999-2001), electrician (2001-2003), taxi driver (2005-2013) and other few jobs for a short time ( baker, vegetables seller at the market and promoter, between 2003 and 2005).
    When I was 30 I left Italy and moved to London, there I worked 2.5 years (2013-2015) as an assistant chef in a few restaurants ( Italian, Mexican and a English catering company).
    In November 2015 I went to South-East Asia and I worked as a waiter in Cambodia(Dec 2015-Jan 2016), and as a bartender and promoter in Vietnam (Feb 2016 to Sep 2016).
    After one year in Vietnam I moved to New Zealand(Oct 2016) and I worked one year as an assistant chef in a restaurant owned by a kiwi man.
    In October 2017 I moved to Mexico and I worked as a volunteer in a hostel in the morning and as a receptionist in a small hotel in the afternoon until April 2018, then I went to San Cristobal and there I worked just as a volunteer in an hostel preparing breakfasts for the guests.
    In July 2018 I came back to Italy due to my father's health issues ( he's now ok ) and I started to work ( November 2018 until now) as a call center operator in a outbound call center (selling insurances for the american company MetLife) and as a tour guide for walking tours in Turin, in English and Spanish language as a second job ( I've done so far 15 tours ).
    I got a 6 months work permit for Canada, that must be activated by the 5th of April 2020. My plan is to arrive in Quebec in February, work a month as a volunteer and try to learn French as much as I can, and at the end of March do the flag pole and activate my work permit.
    Can't wait to start this new adventure and learn a lot of new things!
