I love to travel and do sports (Climbing above all) in general I enjoy very much outdoor life! I'm also mad about good food (I love cooking) and restaurants. I also love games (any kind) and movies! So if needed I can help you out with all the information you needs on those topics! I'm an entrepreneur and I'm currently running with my team my IT company with offices in Amsterdam and Trento so I often travel to these areas. My family owns a little farm in a small village in Florence countryside where they produce organic olive oil, wine and vegetables like dwarf-beans and black cabbage typical from this area. With my mom we manage on Airbnb: 1) a beautiful apartment one in the heart of Florence 2) a villa in the countryside 30m away from Florence
