About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live, thru mistakes, errors, confrontations and new experiences

ABOUT ME

All I know, is that we are all here to learn, so let's do it! with passion and common sense choosing the right challanges. I like studing but I'm not a nerd :-D , the theory gives you precious hints about how manage your reality.

The music is in my blood, I'm a musician myself and I believe that everyone has his own artistic (or aesthetic) way to express himself. for me it's music.

Travelling, there's a better way to know other cultures and above all, yourself? Measuring your own reality in the world teaches us to be aware of our place in this huge social system, and gives the most exciting sensations, random possibilities, sublime backdrops and exotic flavors.

PHILOSOPHY

Everyone's right, everyone live its life in the way he prefer. I personally think that some ways are better than others (as a paricular attention to enviromental problems, an healty life made of phisical excercises and spiritual nourish) but my opinion is not better nor worst than everyone's elses.
everyone has a path in front of himself, and it will reaveal itself sooner or later :-D

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I now live a phase of transition in my life, living between Holland and Belgium, therefore I cannot really host much for the time being. However I usually participate to the local meeting and I always nurture my Couch-friends as much as I can.

I've also hosted a few travelers in the past, and I showed them some of our beautiful Mediterranean beaches.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I believe CS is a great way to meet up with friends you don't know yet, and all my CS experiences so far have been exciting, interesting and incredibly surprising.
That's give the motivation to keep CSurfing instead of going for ordinary trips.

Interests

Politics, it's what I studied the most, I love the ways societies find to manage themselves and how them interface each others, plus is a good indicator to measure our society and culture.

Music, I play bass guitar and I've been working as sound technician for a couple of years.

Books, I'm a passionate reader, especially social essay, novels and travel histories

Swimming and underwater fishing, my hometown it's in front of the mediterranean sea and the water it's my element. What happens down there it's an extraordinary phenomenon, so why we can't be witness of this realm?

Music, Movies & Books

Books: Eric Fromm, Tiziano Terzani, Alessando Baricco, Paolo Cohelo, Hermann Hesse, Pablo Neruda

Music: I listen everything from Jazz, to Heavy Metal, also I like raggae, ska, folk, d'n'b, dubstep, trip-hop and I definitely love classic.

Movies: basically all the Tarantino's, plus Tainspotting, the Matrixs, Star War, LoTR, The Big Lebowski.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I teached english to a all-ages class in a monastey in Cambodia.

I rode horses in the australian Outback.

I saw wild penguins getting back to their nests in Tasmania.

I dived in the Great Coral Reef

Teach, Learn, Share

It is not necessary that you leave the house.
Remain at your table and listen.
Do not even listen, only wait.
Do not even wait, be wholly still and alone.

The world will present itself to you for its unmasking, it can do no other,
in ecstasy it will writhe at your feet.

(F.Kafka)

----------------------------------------

With my feet upon the ground
I lose myself between the sounds
and open wide to suck it in,
I feel it move across my skin.

I'm reaching up and reaching out,
I'm reaching for the random or
what ever will bewilder me
what ever will bewilder me.

And following our will and wind
we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end
and may just go where no one's been.

Spiral out. Keep going, going...

(Tool - Lateralus)
