About Me

Hey guys,

I'm Chiara, 20 years old and I live in Holland. I would love to travel more, especially in Italy. I'm studying the Italian culture and language at the University in Leiden (Holland) I also work 2 times a week at the airport of Amsterdam, I love the job cause I meet so many foreign people! On my future journeys I want to see the non touristic places. I would love to get tours from people in their cities/villages. I've never done Couchsurfing and I'm quite anxious about it but also very curious. I'm a really social, happy girl who enjoys life (cliché, I know :p). I'm still living with my parents, so unfortunately I can't host other people :( But I would love to go to events and meet other foreign people :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

A friend told me about this site and I'm really curious about this. I would like to know what the locals know about their cities. For example: Italians are most of the time very proud of their regions and I love to hear the stories from them. Why their city is better than other cities. Besides I like to share my experiences in 'life' and I hope we can have a nice talk!


ITALY ♥ I love everything about it: the literature (Dante, Pasolini, Calvino), the life style (apertivo all the time) and the great nature there. Every year I go to the same camping at the Lake of Bolsena. This way I can finally meet other people and see other places that I've never seen before.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen a lot of Italian music. During the trip to Italy in the car we always listened Eros Ramazzotti. Now I've Italian friends and they told me it's awful that I listen to him, so I tried to get a better taste haha. Recently I listen to Italian music that's in the top list on Spotify, like Ghali, Coez, Boombadesh. I just like to listen to Italian music because I learn a lot from it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been an au-pair in Genoa (Italy) in 2017 and I loved the experience. I'm so glad that i've done it.
I didn't like the job that much, because for me at a certain point I started getting bored, but the experience of meeting new people, a boyfriend and knowing a lot of new places in and around Genoa was awesome. The family was so nice to me and I was lucky to have my experience with them.
