Hi everyone! Namasté!
I'm an italian, sunny and curious girl! I live in Paris since 2013, where I've attended my residency in ER medicine. I used to live in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, an amazing part of the city, full of life, colors and sounds, climbs and descents, stairs, breathtaking views of the city.
Since November 2018 I have left Paris and now I am currently working in different missions around the world, being able to work as a doctor for a couple of months and then taking some pauses to travel! I feel very lucky! :)
I speak Italian (of course!), French and English.
I like to travel (from the sensation of locking the door behind me, putting the backpack on my shoulders, and just..go! I love train stations, find them really fascinating places. I like waiting for my flights at the airport, watching people coming from all over the world and going so far away...), being in the silence of the nature, walking barefoot, discussing subjects, asking questions and answering when people ask me, knowing new things, get passionated about new subjects (with -almost- no restrictions... explain to me what passionate you and why, I will let you inspire me!), seeing différents landscapes, making efforts and then rest! ...ah, and I love my bike (the 4th since I am in Paris... the first 3 got stolen..!) and (big) dogs! And cow and donkeys!
I don't like too much adrenaline and extreme sports: I find life enough thrilling without bungee jumping and skydiving! But I would be glad to discuss about that too: maybe I will change my mind..!

Teach, Learn, Share
I think I can definitely learn more than teach, but I will do my best to share with you my passions, if ever you are interested in!
Walking in Paris, going to the market, cook, knitting scarfs, going to the theatre, learn Italian, discuss about how our magnificent human body works (for the most science-addicted among you! I love my job and I like to share!) exchange opinions about...life!
I am a certificate Yoga teacher, so I can teach you some postures!
