About Me

ABOUT YOUR COUCHREQUEST

In this period a lot of people are looking for an host. I am trying to do my best for to answer you back in a few minutes, in the way that you can already know if I am available for you or not. I reply to everyone, so just wait and have faith ;)

You can write me also if you only need informations or you are in trouble. I will see what I can do for you. If I can't host you in the days you need, you could still receive an useful consolation prize.

As host, I am located directly into the historical center of Venice. You can arrive to the main attractions within a few minutes walk. Is also possible to take the public transportation at the side of the home, but it is necessary only for to go to the minor islands.

CURRENT MISSION

To do so well on this world...like I came from another planet!

ABOUT ME

I like to build, piece after piece, my personal dream every day. I know that every second is unique and must not be wasted. I like getting out something good from something bad. And...I get up at the morning being enthusiastic for what I'm going to receive!

PHILOSOPHY

If you really want to get something and you are able to pay the "price", then you will get it. No matter what is; in the end you will.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I can both hosting and surfing. I have been hosted in many countries and I have also hosted people from allover the world. I'm very glad to participate in this project!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Of course my experience with Couchsurfing is very positive. Through this new way of traveling is possible to see much better how is the life of the people in the place you are going to visit. This enriches the experience much more becouse now you have an internal perspective that allow you to observe many more details than before. A different country also means a different culture and a different lifestyle. Probably you was going to miss a part of all this especially during a short journey if you wasn't also hosted from someone there. And by the way you can improve your foreing language, not only outside but even inside the home. For these reasons I think that traveling with Couchsurfing can be useful under many points of view. Of course, at the same time is also possible to enjoy yourself around much more! The journey became much less predictable...this is a nice side of the system :).

Interests

Other than economy I dedicate a lot of my free time into the sport and music.

About music, I like both to listen and play the best of every genre.

At this link you can hear some songs I have recorded with my guitar and my band as samples:

One of my passions is Venice itself! I have already studied more than one hundred documentaries and books. If you are interest in this topic I could give you some titles and links to free online resources.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The born of my nephew. It wasn't exactly a Couchsurfing experience but it was very touching anyway ;). Was amazing to get in a moment a new person in our family :). And now, after some years and some other nephew, I'm not get used yet to be called "Uncle Carlo"! :D

Teach, Learn, Share

First of all I can provide you informations about this beautiful city. I study also the history of Venice, so If you want I could put my knowledge at your service. Obviously I can also suggest you what are the most interesting places to visit for the time you have and how to get there.

Second: Maybe you want also to taste typical food of this area, am I right? Then I could prepare some dishes for you according to your preferences. During the year we also have a certain amount of food we produce directly.

Anddd....last but not least, if you want I could teach you how to enjoy your friends with a guitar or a piano! If you are interest or maybe just curious about it, then we could spend sometime speaking about music or I could playing something :).

About to learn, if you want to teach me a new thing I am sure we will find a good topic to talk about. I am always ready to improve my knowledge in every direction.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I consider Couchsurfing to be also a way for to help the people. I want to give you the best hospitality I can and to do my best for to solve every problem you could have.
On the other side, when I am traveling I want to make my host truly happy for have got me at his home.
