About Me


I want to be happy with my family


I am trying to discover myself; I am an "anxious" person, meaning that I love to read books, discuss about them, write and think. I love to talk but I also can be a very good listener; I like to meet people from all over the world, have fun with them and become friends.


I try to discover still my "truth"...maybe we can do it together...I know for sure that I love to love and to be loved...also I always want to say "yes", I never want to say no...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Through Couchsurfing I have met wonderful people! I don't believe that CS is only for sharing a couch; even a coffee, even a chat, even a smile from an "unknown" friend in a remote country means a lot. I am really happy I am part of this huge group of friends.


I love to travel, especially to places not very touristic; I like art films and non-Hollywood cinema ( f.ex. iranian or korean films). I love a lot to discuss about life, relations, psychology. Finally I like to have fun; I love dancing, clubs and oriental dances especially. Also lately i watched a show with Indian dances, and I was amazed!

Music, Movies, and Books

I love ethnic music; also I like U2, Bjork, Bon Jovi.
As I wrote before, I love Iranian, Korean as well as European films. I like to read writers from other countries: Amos Oz, Amin Maaluf, Orhan Pamuk, Elif Safak, Kazuo Isiguro, J. Banville. Currently I am reading a wonderful book of Zygmunt Bauman, " Liquid Love- On the Frailty of Human Bonds".
