Ciao my dear future guests!
My name is Elisa and I am 30 years old.
I currently live in Rome, my city, but until a few years ago I lived overseas travelling, working, studying and gaining the most extraordinary and worthy experiences that only backpacking can give you. That was my life for almost ten years until I decided to come back to my home town Rome, I guarantee I was not home-sick, nor I was missing anything or anyone... I decided to come back to support my parents in a family business that needed youth to be carried on and implemented.
I am also a sport person, in particular for the past few years I have been involved in beach volley training in Rome, an amazing sport that get you addicted straight away!
I also like photography very much, however stuck in Rome for the moment my inspiration has run low :(
Travelling however, stays by all means what I love the most in life! And as a fundamental aspect of it, receiving and giving hospitality.
While travelling I experienced hospitality many times, and I have beautiful memories of places where I stayed and people that hosted me, those images were often more impressed than the actual area I was visiting. I also ended up in the hospitality industry long time ago and worked in a few hotels as a receptionist, a job I deeply loved. Since then running a hospitality business has been my dream...
I hope to be able one day in my home country, to give back to my guests that welcomy and friendly hospitality I have received elsewhere, especially because I realise how difficult and confusing the impact with the Italian attitude can be for travellers! I believe Airbnb is a fantastic link to start doing it!
They ask for my motto...I have many short, long...let's say I encourage myself to believe in power of simplicity, honesty, modesty however staying ambitious and in keeping a smile on as much as I can :)
