About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Sing like everyone is listening, love like you have been hurt, dance like anyone is watching and live every day as if it was your first

ABOUT ME

I'm closed-minded

PHILOSOPHY

I'm against bigotry, in religion, life, and CouchSurfing.

For example, i'm against the "special word policy", because it's unfair: the more you need a couch, the less you have time to read every single line in a profile.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My Rules:

- Mi casa es mi casa

- I don't host open-minded-and-easygoing-people (that excludes the 95% of the CS community)

- You have to bring your bedlines, your pillow, your mattress and the head of your bed

- You can bring your pet. I just inform you i live with an alligator. There's also a chimp, but he's always in his room studying astrophysics

- I only accept copy-and-paste requests, please don't send me a personal request

- Please don't include a special word in your message

- If you are a terrorist, you should leave the detonator outside

- CouchSurfing is a dating website

- I don't want to know different cultures

- You can only smoke inside

- I have double keys, but you have to leave my house when i'm in, and viceversa

- If you are a sinner, i can host also your soul, but it has to send a separate request

- I prefer to host during workdays, so we will spend less time together

- I cannot host when i have free time (if not, it wouldn't be free time)

- You will sleep in the common room, but i will try to make a lot of noise in the early morning

- Don't say you are going on the street if i don't host you (hospitality is kindness, not a blackmail)

- Dont't say you are going to cook. I am the italian, I cook (very bad)

- My dishes are waiting for you

---

Rules about profile pictures clichés:

- No self-portraits keeping yourself the camera (you should have at least ONE friend)

- No underwater self-portrais (except if there is a shark on the background)

- No "pushing-the-Pisa-tower" pictures, etc.

---

Some (not very touristic) highlight in Rome:

- panorama from Gianicolo (870) - Giardino degli Aranci (Aventino Hill) (81, 628, Metro B Circo Massimo) - Villa Celimontana (near from Coliseum) (Metro B Colosseo) - San Clemente and the catacombs (via Labicana) (3, 810, Metro B Colosseo) - Fontana delle Tartarughe (piazza Mattei, near largo Argentina) (8, 30, 40, 62, 64, 70 ...) - Parco dell'Appia Antica (by bike) (118 from Piramide)

Extra: Rainbow MagicLand (new theme park near Rome, i can go with you)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I saw the solar eclipse in 1999

I've seen the Opening Ceremony of 2009 Mediterranean Games in Pescara

I gave some smiles in Disneyland Paris

I ran all-around Disneyland Paris, including the backstage

I scored a basket from half-court (several times, in training)

I made a wall to an ex-Olympic beach volley player

I made a special serve "owned" by the actual italian beach volley champion, in front of him, and he said he liked it

I survive everyday Rome and the Romans

Teach, Learn, Share

I can play music with fingers and teeths

Public trasportation in Rome at high level

If you go to Rainbow MagicLand i can tell you something
