We are a family of four from Rome. I am 40, my husband Alessio 45 and our children are 9 (Niccolò) and 2 months (Maddalena). I am a journalist and a writer, Alessio is a software engineer and Niccolò is a fourthgrader wannabe a scientist, a policeman, a movie star and a surfer. Maddalena is too young to think about the future :) We also own a small pet at home in Italy, she is a jack russell terrier. We are a very quiet and easy going family . We like spending our vacation by the ocean, surfing (well not me, Alessio. All I need is a book and a lounge chair to feel amazingly great honestly!) and sun tanning. We are food&wine lovers, so we tend to dine out often but we do enjoy cooking at home aswell. We are also experienced home exchangers. We think that's a great way to travel.
