Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I got introduced to Couchsurfing by my former flatmate when I was living in Rome in 2010. Since then, I felt in love with this fantastic community as I had (and still having) the chance to know and host fascinating people from all over the world.


Couchsurfing is the best way to travel around the globe, learn new languages, feel a citizen of the world, enjoying parties, having fun, compare different cultures, share smiles and feelings, discover yourself, open your eyes and dig out your soul....and more...


I have many interests and it would be almost impossible to synthesize every things that you love in your life just in few words. What i can say is that I have three big interests: nature, football and electric guitar.

I have been playing football since i was born and it was my obsession until the age of 18-20, and I could quit it just when my knees will not be allowed to support me more. At the age of 18, I discovered a new bad habit: the guitar. Since I was able to buy an acoustic guitar i didn't expect this woody diabolic box would have changed my life. So, I started to learn playing guitar as autodidact since then and after having learnt many Rock and Pop songs I turned to play the Blues. It was from my big cousin's fingers when my soul was definitely caught by the blues sound. I remember when he taught me a blues rhythm playing my guitar the feeling that flowed through my bones and my veins was like anything else in this world would have made me happy but the blues. I can now say with utmost sincerity that this kind of music gave me the chance to find happiness in the little things.

Now I play in a rock'n'roll band in Brussels called The Midnight Troubles.

I am a geologist and I love nature in all its forms. I started to get interested in Geology when I saw some pictures of the Earth from a book of geography when I was at High School in Palermo. Since then I decided to attend the University of Geology in my hometown. From the first subjects I studied I always thought I would have done this in my life: to understand the history of the Earth. After having obtained a B.Sc. degree at the University of Palermo, I moved to the University of Rome "La Sapienza" where I got a M.Sc. degree and spent three fantastic years. At this point, my dream was to pursue my studies abroad and to find a place that would have accomplished my interests. I found that place and it is the city where I'm currently living: Brussels. Now, I am a PhD Student in Geology at the Free University of Brussels (VUB).
