About Me

Study happiness and astronomy and, in the future, learn how to sail.
Find out if there are common themes on human well-being across countries and cultures.
I love to play guitar and wish to learn many more songs. Singing is a great goal, too
Cook a dish from every single country of the world, going in alphabetical order

Life is a travel! Hospitality is not just hosting people is a way to discover the beauty in each others' different stories.

After 12 years in East Africa (Uganda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Sudan and Ethiopia), and almost two years in Erbil, I am now in Amman, Jordan.

Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no one has gone before!
...while I wait for humans to finally go to explore space, I will keep exploring strange new countries, seek out new lives and learn about new civilizations, and boldly go where other ones have already gone before, but see those places with my own eyes and meet new beautiful people I havent met before 😀

...and yes, 20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do, then the things you did.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


First step: I used couch surfing for the first time in norhern France and Wow!!! it's simply great!!! Second step: I could not stop, I continued using CS in Norway, Malta, Sweden, Italy, Austria, Kenya and last in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Iraq.
...what else could I need? other than continue to sharing life experiences and travel stories


I started in 2009, I have been hosted by 11 different surfer in norhtern france, I continue surfing in Sweden, Norwey, Malta, Italy and Austria in 2010. Then finally I had my own place and I start to host several surfers from France, US, Egypt, Italy.
I discover that CS is great even in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania! :-)
Fast forward 12 years of life, and I still think couch surfing, the one of rhe best way to travel and meetings the best of humanity.


I like to listen to stories of travel and life. I think that everyone have a nice one to tell.

Music, Movies, and Books

I am a sci-fi lover (star trek, the expanse, and many more)
My favorite book is Siddartha, I like Kapushinzki, Tiziano Terzani, Neruda, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Azimov and many many more.
