I am travelling to Italy in September to December and looking to stay at several different places whilst I'm there. Some places are looking for more than one person so if you're in a similar situation to me let me know and we could team up!
Italy (September - December)
I have just finished my Philosophy degree in Edinburgh and am yearning to get involved in something practical. I would like to experience different ways of life, especially self-sufficient farm-based lifestyles.
I am keen to do woodwork and construction as I wish to develop my skills in these areas with the view to becoming a professional carpenter/joiner in the future. I studied foundation art and design which gave me a little experience in many different areas of design, including woodwork. However, I also look forward doing other tasks such as gardening, harvesting fruit/veg, and looking after animals.
I was brought up in a Bed and Breakfast in Somerset, England, so I`ve plenty of experience cleaning, tidying and cooking for guests. Now my mum lives on a farm near Wincanton and I have been helping out with several woodworking tasks that need to be done. I have also been helping to build a hut in a community woodland outside Edinburgh. I love to play and listen to music, so it would be great if you`re up for a jam. I love cooking and baking and I'm keen to learn what I can about Italian cuisine and look forward to using fresh local ingredients. I like to talk about philosophy, films, music, nature, books, anything really! I am also happy to spend time by myself working, reading or just thinking. I learned Italian at school but haven`t had a chance to practice it since, I would love be able to speak Italian and hope that I can learn a little from my hosts or fellow helpers.
I am looking to stay in Italy from September till December, when I`ll come home for Christmas. I expect to travel between places during that time, staying a few weeks in each place but I`d be happy to stay somewhere for longer if your happy to have me!
Please get in touch if you`d be interested in hosting me or want to ask any questions.
