About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Discovering the world, experiencing other cultures, exploring different places and making new friends during this process.

ABOUT ME

I suggest you to read what my previous guests and hosts have to say about me, instead of reading whatever I could tell you about myself. ;)

PHILOSOPHY

I really feel like part of a world without borders invented by men. Despite being a citzen of any country, despite being part of any specifc culture, I feel a lot like part of our planet than of anything else, I'm a citzen of the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm a lot into experiencing other cultures, exploring different places and making friends all over. In that sense, I think couchsurf provides us a perfect tool, a great opportunity to get to know the locals, to learn from them about the local culture/history/issues, etc... This is one good way for me to try to maxime my experiences everywhere I go.
