About Me


Hunting for intellectual freedom and inspiring new friends


Just back to Europe after three wonderful years in Australia. I would love meeting with new friends in Florence and hosting international travelers.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far I have been just hosting but I plan to start surfing my self next summer :-)


Through CS I have met with very inspiring and happy travellers which is so rewarding per se !


I very much enjoy listening stories. Any new meeting is a special opportunity to learn and to grow. ... I have just started attending tango classes and I love it !!! ... and of course I love travelling :-)
