    Note: I am booked for the remainder of the year. There could be an occasional cancellation if you would still wish to write.

    Please note that you must have proof of a completed Covid vaccination. I cannot host you if you do not. This should be the first line of your message.

    In the spring I welcome help repairing, cleaning, sanding, and painting my 8 meter “BBQ” boat and a 6 meter (19’) simple fiberglass fishing boat. The work is not technical, but you should have experience with hand tools, sanding, and painting as well as general cleaning. It’s a major advantage if you have fiberglass experience for the fishing boat. All work is done outside.

    I would also like to host those with experience in either voice training or songwriting. My singing voice quality has diminished in the past few years, and I would like to get it back. And I have not written any songs in decades, and would greatly enjoy instruction and collaboration.

    In late September and October, I need help bringing my 9m (29.5’) pontoon boat back on land and preparing it for winter storage. I do not need helpers from November 202 through March 2023.

    I am a retired dual citizen American/Italian with a small apartment in Italy in a beautiful small village of 100 people a few minutes from Lake Como and thirty minutes from Lugano, Switzerland.

    Any non-smoker of any age is welcome to come help, and on free time to explore this beautiful area alone or with me. Please note that I host for only a week or two.

    You can reach me by bus from either the city of Como or the Swiss city of Lugano.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Working and being on my boats affords not only a chance to learn about small water craft, but also about the beauty and culture which can be found both on Lake Como and Lake Lugano.

    In addition, the village I live in dates from the middle ages. Across the tiny piazza I live on is a large, well-known villa of an Italian baron, and immediately adjacent to the village is an enormous nature preserve (Val Sanagra) with its history of mills which produced silk, metal works, and tiles. Within 20 minutes of my house are cultural centers which offer music, gardens and architecture known the world over.

    Finally, interactions with myself allow for interesting cultural exchanges based on my personal history, enjoyment of playing and listening to music, and shared cooking exchanges for different cultures and countries.

    Alojamiento

    You will have a private bedroom and share the bath. In exchange for your help, you will also receive home meals. I eat meat, but if you are a basic vegetarian, I will try to accommodate you, or you can cook with food I will provide.

    This is an extremely beautiful area. My village borders an enormous nature preserve with hiking trails, and of course there are the lakes Como and Lugano.

    You can reach me by bus from either the city of Como or the Swiss city of Lugano.
