About Me


Dance like no one is watching


Born on the Eastern border of Romania (now EU), in a town reputed for having the largest iron-steel plant in Eastern Europe (you can imagine the tourists flocking in). Moved out, went to Italy. Hung out with people coming from all places. Wanting to go all places. Not yet decided where I want to go. Not yet decided where I want to live. Not yet decided.

Recently opened a HOMA (Humans of Mother Africa) page on FB with pics from my African travels, feel free to check it out here:

I travel like Bear Grylls !
You are a hardcore traveler with a stomach of steel, and you'll eat a grub out of a tree long before you are even hungry. You can't remember the last time you showered, but you still look good.

"The best things in our life, our hope, lies not in those ties imposed on us by our birth or social environment, but rather in that web of questions and answers between people brought together by case, who have never met before and who will die unaware of one another" (G. Piovene)
