About Me


Mission: voyager, en vélo, si possible
We'd love to do a long bike travel but we still don't know when!

We believe in sustainable mobility - we only have bikes, not cars. We try to slow down our way of life: it's more about sharing and helping each other than running as fast as we can.

Maria: un peu folle, sympa, optimiste, je voudrais avoir un potager mais je n'ai qu'un balcon! J'adore aller à vélo.

Roberto: journaliste, curieux, into literature, bikes, new technologies, cooking.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Dans notre voyage de Bologne à Avignon on a logé chez deux couchsurfers dans notre chemin, expérience à répéter!

When we moved by bike from Bologna to Avignon we've been hosted by couchsurfer and it made our trip!

We like to meet people and discover places with them.

Hosting people is somehow a way to travel when you can't move.


Maria: ride a bike is one of the best things to do, quindi giro in bici, sia negli spostamenti in città che fuori, non ho la macchina (per scelta), leggo, lavoro coi bambini (insomma, gioco!), viaggio quando posso.

Roberto: reading & writing, musique, vino, découvrir lieux et gens, baking. And of course bike, with a bit of mechanics.

Music, Movies, and Books

Curious about almost everything (but with slightly different tastes between Maria and Roberto): lots of books, TV series, music and films... we can talk about them when we meet!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Maria: Erasmus a Tours, città che mi è rimasta nel cuore. Poi, viaggi in treno da sola lungo tutta l'Italia, spesso improvvisati, splendidi, e km in bici con Roberto, alcuni proprio senza fiato perchè controvento! :)

ENG: Erasmus in Tours, a city that's still in my heart. Travels, alone, by train all over italy, often last minute and beautiful, km by bike with Roberto, some of them literally breathless because of strong winds against us!

Roberto: live in Andalucia in my 20s, play drums in front of about 2.000 people but the best remains to ride my bike on new roads.

Teach, Learn, Share

Italian languange and italian cooking, of course, some bike tips and mechanics and everything we know!

What I Can Share with Hosts

A new comfortable couch, chats and our friends when we go out with them or when they come visit us, chili peppers.
