  • Descripción

    I live in Italy, the area is in the north-west: Piemonte.
    From 2010 I had guests in couchsurfing and from 2015 I’ve been hosting Workawayers to restore partly my farm, help with my vegetable garden in permaculture and maintain the land.
    So I can understand better both rules as host or worker.

    During cold months there’s not much to do at home so, three years ago, I started traveling south where’s still possible to work outside.
    Before In Morocco, Spain and Greece, then mostly south Italy and Sicily. I love meeting new people and finding inspiration and ideas, learning and sharing my experience and skills.

    I ran for a couple of years a small airbnb at home and I got the superhost because my guests appreciated very much my hospitality.
    .
    I can’t travel as a “tourist” because I always need to do something and feel useful. So workaway is what suits me better.
    I'm handywoman and can do work and reparation around house and garden. I can drive car without problems both in busy towns and country roads.

    Some years ago (before pandemic) I was traveling often to Morocco, got friends there and helped them in tourism as virtual assistant, translator and pr or organizing events and trips.
    I love sharing and connecting people.

    My job has been teaching English to primary children for more than 20 years but I also worked in offices, events, restaurants, as postwoman, housewife, mum... so my experiences are very varied.
    Fluent in English, French, some Spanish and German.
    .
    I have a good relationship with children but now I prefer working also with adults or open air.
    After a bad experience I had with a dog two years ago, I started again choosing hosts with animals and I love it. I took care of dogs, cats, chickens till now and it’s always a pleasure😀
    In Italy I’ve been volunteering in a school for refugees and illitterate women
    . I’m also in International Civil Service so I join their programmes as well.
    I'm talkative but, when i'm working, I prefer silence and music to concentrate .

    In Workaway I had often the opportunity to be useful as interpreter and translator for people (mostly expats with projects in Italy) giving help to manage bureaucracy. I’m quite skilled about it also because I often need to face it concerning my property and project at home

    Wide spaces, respect and care of the environment and good simple life and people are my favourite, sharing ideas and experience my goals.
    I believe that’s very important to create as much as possible a network of people working with similar goals. It’s what I’m doing both in my area and when I travel. It works 😀
