One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Done: worked organizing elections in Afghanistan and Iraq. I lost my sleep, my mental stability, any physical energy but I did not give up. :-)
Seen: the Ocean (no matter how simple that might be, it still deeply fascinates me)

Teach, Learn, Share

Not sure you wanna learn Italian, but I guess I could help you with that. I just started to learn Portuguese.
I need to improve my IT skills (Excel, Powerpoint... so easy, I know, but I am so lazy!)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Respect, both for people and house rules, quality conversation, a good laugh. I am pretty independent while traveling but I am totally up fur spending some time together, if you wish to.
