About Me


itinerant seller of the manifest of a love revolution!


What do you need to know, really? my astrological sign? Can I send you a photocopy of the map of my palm lines?


Life is life (na na na na na)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can offer a bed and a plate of home-made pasta to everybody!


The first CS experience was... a very very long time ago! I am getting old. It was in Kathmandu and I'm afraid I fell in love with my host. Is that wrong in Couchsurfing protocols?


I'm interested in pretty much everything ! I'm a very curious person. I am very bad in showing interest about cars and football though. But please do stay with me even if you are crazy about cars and football, that's fine, I am working on it!

Music, Movies, and Books

one movie, one music band, one book:
Les Fleurs du Mal
(Remark: I haven't updated this list since I was 18 years old. And I think that's a very cute list, so I am keeping it as such.)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Once I dreamed my body was transformed into Shiva and I became all blue.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach acroyoga, aerial acrobatics, Bengali language and folk songs... maybe also some Italian recipes or some tricks to prepare home-made limoncello?

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am very new in Germany but I can share some tips on living a good life in Tübingen, some anthropological perspectives on weird German people and their customs, my free evenings, my sofa bed. Enough?
