I'm a dreamer, wild, addicted Couchsurfer Traveller & Hugger, Hitchhiker, Backpacker, Biker, Confest-er and Pilgrim, I'm vegan..usually! :D
I like to learn about people places and life, to be excited about knowing new things, to be astonished of a wonderful Mother Nature and to spread the love hugging
I'm definitely a day person, I like to live the day. I can be a party person as well.. but don't be surprise if I fell asleep after 10 pm(or before..)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Host surf and organise meetings
The best web site ever, which changed the way of traveling, knowing places and new friends for many travelers around the world.
Some of my friends found their soul mate too, isn't it nice?
I just realised.. After 8 years of CS, that my social life got better thanks to it.
Most of my best friends are CSrs.. and we love so much each others!
Smiling! sitting and watching people passing, cooking for friends, Arts, hugging, smiling again, walking or cycling in the nature, sharing a glass of good red wine, walking along a deserted beach and listen the nature, barefooting, admiring sunrises & sunsets, walking, dancing, horse back riding, tennis and sailing
I'm in love with my friends!
Hugs hugs hugs!
Music, Movies, and Books
MUSIC a bit of everything but I love: DMB, Kings of Leon, U2, Ruiki Sakamoto, Ennio Morricone, Queen, CCR, Merendine Atomiche, Fito y los FItipaldis, Cat Empire, Mana, The Temper Trap.
