About Me

ABOUT ME

I'm a person who enjoy both going to party, but also a nice talk, going out for a walk and drink a coffe or beer with a friend. I'm a friendly person who like to meet new people and learn about their culture, ideas and way of life. Respectful, open-minded and easy-going always up for an adventure and curious about life and people. I believe about discovering the world by its people, getting in contact with locals and fellow travelers, listening their stories and learning from them.

Among many other things, I'm absolutely passionate about cinema, photography, arts & cultures. Also love football, beer, pizza and outdoor activities. Fan of long walks without any specific destination, vintage things, nature, dogs and deep talks.

A poem that inspire me to travel and reflects my view about it:

“To travel is to leave home 
is to leave the friends
is to try to fly.
Flying meeting new branches
walking roads
is to try to change. 

To travel is dress as madmen
is to say “I don’t mind”
is to want to come back. 
To return valuing the little
enjoying a drink 
is the desire to start. 

To travel is to feel poet 
write a letter 
is to want to hug.
Hug when you reach the door
missing the calm 
is to allow being kissed.

To travel is to become worldy
is to meet another people
is to start again.
Starting offering your hand
learning from the stronger 
is to feel loneliness. 

To travel is to leave home
is to dress like a madman
saying everything and nothing with a  
postcard.
Is to sleep in another bed
feel that the time is short
to travel is to come back.!"

Gabriel García Marquez

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

'Cause I like to meet new people and live new experiences. Couchsurfing is an opportunity to get in contact with amazing persons all around the world, learn from them and share nice moments.

Obviously everybody use CS because they like to travel and meet people but also I like to think that travelers on couchsurfing are friends I don't meet yet. Even if you can't host me (which it's nice but not the main reason why I use CS) or if I can't host you, I'd love to meet you and share a moment with you.

I don't see people here as a tourist but as a traveler. This world is so big and beautiful that it is a pity to born and die in the same place without visit any other. I think the best thing when you travel is to meet other travelers or local people. It's more valuable for me to meet and share a moment with someone in my trips than to take a selfie with a monument. Even if you can not physically travel at the moment, you can do it by learning from and listening experiences from other travelers.
