About Me

We are a young Basque/Italian family with two kids: a little girl, Oihana (2007) and a boy, Asier (2010). We love to travel and to know different cultures and everyone else in here I bet ;) It is a must!
We are easy people that enjoy simple things like a stroll in a park or a good chat. We love natural landscapes and when visting a city we like just walking around, have a beer and getting a sense of what life is like in that particular part of the world.
We are quite active in CS (hosting and surfing) as we believe that we can teach our children about respect, hospitality, cultural differences and different languages and religions, but of course if we show them, it is much more effective :)

The world has enough for everybody€™s need, but not for everybody€™s greed. (Mahatma Gandhi)

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. (Mark Twain)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We participate offering our sofa to anyone who can reach it! We are quite addicted to CS! Even if we can't really participate to all the many events that are daily proposed by our Milan CS Group we host everytime we can...

We also moderate the "Family Welcome - Italy" Group that is a group for families living or travelling in italy. Here you have the link:

And, of course, we spread the word about this amazing community :)

Our profile visitors:


We love mountains: trekking and rock climbing, even if often we haven't got time for that...
Matteo is quite addicted to running (marathons and half-marathons, skyrunning, trail) and to endurance sports in general.
We both love walking in the nature, reading novels and having dinner with friends!
And no need to say... TRAVELLING!

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many of them! We love reading and watching movies..
Just few of them are:
- Books (or better say Authors): Ken Follett, Frank Schätzing, Khaled Hosseini, Tolkien, Terry Brooks, Isaac Asimov, Jon Krakauer, Paulo Coelho, Alessandro Baricco, Stieg Larsson, Carlos Ruiz Zafon, John Grisham, Michael Crichton, Gioconda Belli, Mauro Corona and many more... (see my library: )
- Movies: Almost everything of Roberto Benigni. Most of all "Life is beautiful - La vita è bella". And too many other to fit in this small box :)
- Music: uhm.. nearly everything depending on the moment. Usually Rock, Punk-Rock, Ska, Folk.. Not really a fan of disco music.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing we have seen (and done) so far... our little kids!

We also lived during a couple of year in Guatemala working in a development project of farmers cooperatives... a very "enriching" experience!
