I am not new to hosting and be hosted, but just to this platform.
I prefer this to hostels and pensions not because "it is cheap", as I had to
read it from some 'guests' as a reason, why they wanted me to host them.
Correctly done, it isn't, but with the right hosts, it is a far more satisfying
experience, because you can get a glimpse of an idea about the place, you are in
and its people.
There's not much to say: I recently, after retiring, moved to Italy. I like
music, cooking, wine and hosting people.
I am here in spring and autumn, the rest of the year somewhere else. In a few
days I will start a Balkan/Baltics tour until Sept. Starting Durres/Albania and
then meandering up to Riga and back to Sicily. Everything possible is possible.
No fixed route from the travel agency. Lodging based on hosting, and if not
availabe, hostels or elsewhere. Companions and hosts welcome!
Oh, and before I forget: no cooking or dishwashing or other chores here, this
you can do, when you host me.
Hope to see you soon.
