I'm currently learning Italian with plans to also master Spanish, French and German!

Attualmente sto imparando l'italiano, con programmi per imparare e migliorare il mio spagnolo, tedesco e francese. La mia famiglia e io viaggeremo per il mondo nel nostro yacht San Lorenzo e parleremo con chiunque nella loro madrelingua che sia disposto ad ascoltare! Il mio messaggio è che puoi realizzare tutto ciò che puoi sognare finché credi e non mollare mai. Sei fluente? Mi piacerebbe praticare una di queste lingue con te!
