Hi everybody, my name is Gaetano and like most of the people here I am excited to the possibility of an experience in a new country, living like a local and not like a "regular" tourist. I believe that's the best way to fully enjoy any travel experience. Sharing knoweledge, customs and culture, and as extremely eclectic person, this is the best way to do it!
I am Italian and I have been living in UK for almost 10 years now. Been working in many industries from offices to shops to warehouses, and also as freelancer, and I'm fairly well travelled.
We could say I am in a "gap year" but honestly I just like any kind of adventure and workaway seemed so interesting that I had to join. Luckily (or unfortunately??) I don't have a 9 to 5 which ties me to a chair all day (with all the due respect!)
If the recent events have taught us something, is that we have to live as fully as we can every single day, and if we have the possibility, helping eachother and maybe gain some personal experience from it, travel and broaden our minds!

Quais são suas habilidades?
My very eclectic nature has brought me to experience many different things, from school days to now. The best way to describe my skills is being very "schematic"... so here we go!
Photography/Videography: Main artistic skill.
I have 20 years of working experience (whenever possible as photographers, true photographers, are an endangered species nowadays!), and a degree in graphic design and photography.
Cycling/Bikes: Main working/athletic skill.
I've been working as mechanic and manager for bike stores for 8 years now. I have been riding bikes for 20 years now and also I was a downhill racer for a couple of years between 2006-2009. Currently owning 7 bikes (show off!)
Hiking/trekking/mountain life: I've been always been a mountain lover, and I also served in the Army for one year, in a mountain Corp.. Never been an army person as per se', however I believe that this experience was more about discover myself alone and far away from home, and understand true lifetime friendship. Apart from all that, that year was a huge boost to my confidence in anything involving mountain, from orientation to safety to skiing, even. (my second favourite sport)
Farming/gardening: When I was living in italy and whenever I come back to visit, I spent most of my time our family house in the country, we have two big orchards with almonds and olives, and a massive garden to take care of! Next to it, a decently sized farm with cows, pigs, horses and chickens. Now as much as I am experienced with gardening, I cannot say the same for animals. I know the basics and I'm so willing to know more!
Music: is one of the things I'm mostly educated on, regardess the genre, what matters is the technique rather than the melody itself! I used to play drums, guitar and sometimes piano, but having said all that, don't expect much "technique" from me! :P
Kitchen: I like cooking but is not my favourite hobby! Obviously italian food!
Computer/internet: I'm a millennial, 'nuff said!
Other interest which I practice whenever possible (otherwise I would need a 48h day!): Cinema (like music, I love all of it), Bowling, Volley, Motorsports, Astronomy, Board Games.

The work at the farm can be demanding at times but is also incredibly interesting, fun and why
