Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
I am very friendly, easy going and very active. I am Italian and besides my native language I also speak English and Spanish. I love meeting new people. I am very curious and love going out.I like to explore...basicly everything in life. I am in love with life, even though its not always rose smelling and shinny moon.... I like to give, and gladly accept the gifts of life given to me.I love travelling, dancing, hiking, biking, mountainbiking, reading, KAYAKING, SAILING, SOFTBALL, modeling and photography, listening to pop music and COUNTRY music, going to happy hours, movies, ethnic dinners and... Italian restaurants of course! I love walking and talking, I am a good listener!
I have taught foreign languages in Boston (USA) for almost three years also in Ireland and Spain. I also studied and worked in the UK.
My friends says I am very caring, funny, sweet and kind.

Being kind is much more important than being right. For sometimes, what a person needs isn't a brilliant mind that speaks, but a patient heart that listens - Chikku George Thomas
When we wish and seek to help others, our attitude is more positive and relationships become easier. We are less afraid and have less anxiety. Otherwise we remain shy and hesitant, and feel the need to take a thousand precautions before we approach people. When our intentions are good, we have greater self-confidence and are stronger. This is how we learn to understand how precious and valuable kindness is -Dalai Lama
