  • Description


    I am a middle aged engineer who chose to move with my Great Dane far from the madding crowd, to a quaint country house on top of a hill, in the South Piedmont wine area, some 80 km away from my Milan office but oh boy, what a view, what a quiet, what amazing landscapes and breathtaking sunsets! I love this place and luckily enough I can work from home most of the time. Sometimes I need to take some business trips abroad always in Europe and never for longer than a week or so, I always bring my dog, I always drive around (dog too big for cabin) and there is always a spare room for my Workawayer if this is ok for them. In my life I travelled through dozens of countries worldwide, worked abroad for years, met lots of great people and made friends that I am still honored to call friends. I am a seasoned Couchsurfing host with fairly good references. I am used to share spaces, I am nomad by definition, sociable, easygoing and outspoken, certainly far from mainstream and not really typically Italian due to my international background. I support diversity and inclusion and I loathe prejudice of all kinds. I love the simple pleasures of life, I like young people that are our future and try and make the most of my time with anyone, especially kids, elderlies and disabled. Having said this, with deers, badgers, boars and wild rabbits visiting every now and then never a dull moment in my garden and lawn. When I moved here I was absolutely useless in manual jobs but now that I have tools and equipment namely for everything what I still need is a spare pair of arms 😁 especially from someone more familiar than me with these activities. As winter is approaching I expect some leaf sweeping and some snow shoveling is also to be expected at some stage.
