About Me


Fun! Learning new things and new ways of being


Will give time to anyone, don't hold a grudge, responsible, easy-going, talkative but also very happy in my own company, intuitive, often experience commonplace euphoria (: like to stare at things and have long peaceful moments (; silly as a spoooon


Honesty, all the time, even small honesties. Putting others before oneself. Being only ever in the moment and avoiding all worries. Being self-reliant.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am clean and neat in other's homes, as well as my own. I can cook and clean. I can also host people. I live in The Rocks in Sydney, right under the Harbour Bridge, with a view of the water, a smarter than average rabbit, and in the middle of the historic centre of Sydney, which is also central to everything.


I have travelled a lot and always had positive experiences staying with people that I met in Morocco, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, America, Italy, France, Japan, and other places I can't right now remember. This is my first profile page though. (I also used to live in italy and London)


Music, silliness, wordplay, photography, swimming, bike-riding, camping, bushwalking, music festivals and outdoor stuff, adventure! and making my own meaning out of the world, lateral-thinking, gardening, cooking, writing, potato, long conversations about nothing, things that are well-timed, ART!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Volunteered with refugees and helped improve their skills, and hopefully their lives in general

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach Italian because I lived there for a little while. I can teach drawing skills. And I love to impart my wisdom and try to help people in whatever way I can. I can also hold up a spoon in a weird balancing trick
