About the Host, Marilena
Amo stare a contatto con la gente, conoscere realtà diverse dalla mia. Ospitare mi offre la possibilità di incontrare culture diverse anche stando nel mio paese in campagna: tutto questo può avvenire grazie alle storie che ogni mio ospite porta con se e condivide con me durante il soggiorno!
Sono appassionata di cucina e mi piace preparare per i miei ospiti piatti prelibati fatti con amore e con i prodotti biologici del mio orto. E anche dietro ogni ricetta c'è una storia da raccontare, da condividere!
