  • Description

    I am coming to Italy late September and staying for 2 or 3 months. I am looking to stay with host families in the region of Abruzzo, where my father was born and raised.
    When I leave Italy (late November) I will be heading to Goa, India. I will be studying with my teacher for a month and am open to whatever else comes my way.
    I am a strong, healthy, adventurous woman. My biggest joy and accomplishment has been raising my 3 beautiful, intelligent, independent, compassionate children. I have traveled on my bicycle through areas of Mexico, Cuba and Guatemala. 3 years ago I made my first trip to Italy. It was a short trip, but I knew I would be back to explore more of this beautiful country.
    I am happiest when I am out in nature. I love to cycle, paddle, swim, hike and yes, get my hands in the soil...l love to garden. From propagating to fruiting to seed saving to composting. I love to cook and I am famous for my pies.
    My education and work has been mostly in geriatrics and horticulture. I take care of and nuture people and plants. I am a new musician, I have studied silver flute for 2 years. Last year while in Mexico, I happened upon a yoga community and studied yoga daily for 2 months. I had taken classes in the past, but had not experienced the spiritual part of it before.
