About Me


To take it easy...


[I am]: a good person with whom to share a witty repartee. [I am also]: determined to travel, laugh and be happy. [I have]: lots of motivation. [impress me]: by being honest, charming and sarcastic. Intellect and knowledge of books helps too. [annoy me]: with ignorance, complacency and arrogance. [bribe me]: with chocolate. [I know]: what I need but I like what I want. It's a problem sometimes. [I want]: to make easier decisions. [I need]: a beach with lukewarm water. [I wish]: I could teleport at will. [I like]: being color coordinated. [I hate]: not as many things as I used to. [I can't live without]: laughter, music, dancing, a good book, bread, and cotton blossom body splash.


Do it or just don't do it at all. Just don't stress about it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Still waiting for my first CouchSurfing experience...


Exploring cities, beaches, trying new food, eating favorite foods, reading, writing and drawing (sparingly), nice views, learning Italian, traveling (of course), drinking wine, good beer, laughing...
