About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoying life. Whenever Wherever (but not Shakira-like).

ABOUT ME

I'm officially a serious engineer and a professor at the Uni, enjoying my work, even if I'm (more than) a bit anomalous compared to the (boring) standard of my professional field. :-D
When working time comes to his daily end, I always feed my social soul by immersing myself among the people and sharing good vibes around me. There's nothing better than a smile to/from a stranger. In this perspective, I'm also an member of Good Vibrations Barcelona movement, organizing flashmobs all around the city where I live with this purpose.
Playing guitar is an important part of my daily life, as listening to good music especially in live performances. And I like so much to play for people.
I like dancing a lot. Clubs, cozy places, in the street. Dancing like nobody's watching. At least this is what we do with the Silent Disco Barcelona. :-)
I believe in sharing, mutual help, cooperation, which fits very well with CS principles. At least, the ones at the origin of CS an now more and more forgotten by founders and users.
Last but not least: addicted to chocolate.

PHILOSOPHY

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
I've ever depended on the kindness of strangers.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hanging out, hosting and being hosted.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I discovered CS when I lived in Finland, because most of people met there were CSers and they involved me quite often in CS experience.
I´ve appreciated the idea and the atmosphere and I´ve decided to join.

So far I've hosted and been hosted several times.

In Barcelona, CS is a good way to enjoy this beautiful city, in spite of a couple of drawbacks met here:
1. Lots of fake CSers, just not to say "tourist", think CS is only a good way to nullify accommodation costs, and nothing more.
2. Official CS activities in Bcn, meeting and bla bla bla, are quite monotonous and repetitive (the same weekly appointments have been going on for months in the same way), and after attending them a few times, they start to be boring.

Interests

Music, as you can see from my description.

Travelling. A lot. In the last year I've flied about 4 times per month. Clearly because of my job, but, you know, duty and pleasure.

Sport. I'm always up for a football match.

Cinema. In my hometown, with other friends, I've founded a cultural Association managing a Cine-Theatre for 232 persons. So proud of it.

Music, Movies & Books

I cannot list everything here.
Come and get in touch with me.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Sunset over the see in my hometown. Aurora borealis in Lapland. Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. Midnight sun in Finland. Grand Canyon, Yosemite Park, Death Valley.

Teach, Learn, Share

Able to teach Italian language, cooking and humour. :-)
Wanting to learn everything can catch my interest, especially new languages and cultures.
