About Me


Sometimes I seem to be shy, but actually I'm pretty open minded, very tolerant and always very interested in learning nearly everything. I'm maybe creative, maybe intelligent; definitely reliable, definitely honestly. Of course, I love to travel and before I moved to Italy I travelled a lot to Italy and know nearly all parts of this beautiful country. Besides that, I'm quite interested in asian culture and I'll move to Tokyo next February.


If you're not failing every now and again, it's a sign you're not doing anything very innovative.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I live in a cosy 2 room apartment in Florence, directly at Mercato Centrale. My apartment is very close to the central train station (5min walk), Duomo (4min), Piazza Della Repubblica (7min), Ponte Vecchio (12min),... I have a big sofa bed for 2 people. In my area are tons of restaurants, cafés, bars, supermarkets and every other stuff which you're looking for. The only bad thing on the apartment: Since my area is very crowded and lively, it shouldn't be a problem for you to sleep with earplugs. With plugs, it's no problem. :)
