About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to give people a chance to have a look beyond their fence

ABOUT ME

COUCHSURFING SEEMS TO HAVE CHANGED A GREAT DEAL SINCE SUMMER 2012. I SEEM TO BE GETTING BOMBARDED WITH REQUESTS FROM 19-23 YEAR OLDS WITH NO REFERENCES, LITTLE CS EXPERIENCE AND WHO SEEM TO BE JUST LOOKING TO PARTY AND GET FREE LODGING,DEFINETLY NO TRAVELLERS. I HAVE NO INTEREST IN THIS AT ALL.

Very important: unfortunately I had a very bad experience lately, so now if you come to my place you MUST show me your ID and I will take a picture of it. If you don't agree with that, don't send me a request

IF you are under 30 years old, please do not send me a request unless you are an experienced CS'er and are willing to put time into writing a personal request clearly stating why we should spend time together. If you're under 30 and have little to no experience, I will not want to host you and will simply send you a 'NO'. READ MY ENTIRE PROFILE CAREFULLY AND DON'T WASTE MY TIME OR YOURS!!!!!!! THANK YOU.

I'm an optimist (in Italian we say: I always see a half glass as a full glass!) curious and with a real travel bug. I'm friendly, not chaotic, very well organized, I enjoy life. I define myself as an eternal wanderer who" still hasn't found what she is looking for".

I travel like St Christopher !
You are the hardest of hardcore travelers, and may one day be our patron saint. There is no challenge that is too much for you, but don't get crazy, because you are not immortal...yet.
What type of traveler are you?

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosting, surfing, activities... there’s a lot to do here. What’s your favorite way to get involved?i love both hosting and surfing..

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have done many CS experiences and they have all been very interesting! I have also done house-minding (Australia) and cat-sitting experiences, very interesting too

Interests

traveling, reading books, meeting people from everywhere, music, animals and nature, pets, exibitions and arts

Music, Movies & Books

above all French movies, jazz, blues, ethnic music (African), English, French and German literature,Ryszard Kapuściński's books

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have done many interesting things in my life, but to get my PADI for scuba-diving (in the Ningaloo Reef in Australia) was something stunning that I would have never expected, as I'm very afraid of deep water! there is another world down there!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a German teacher in Italy! I have always loved foreign languages because they allow you to meet people from all over the world, so that I can learn more and more. I always feel I don´t know enough about life! I have a lot to discover: everything I don't know. I love sharing life experiences bad and good.

What I Can Share With Hosts

my flat is pretty spacious, i can offer a guest-room - if i don't have a flatmate living with me- and I have a big basement where there is a couch and a spare bed.
