About Me

Hi to everybody, It's too difficult to describe yourself in few lines.
in 5 words I would be : Dynamic , adventourous, openminded, courious and spontaneous
I am sure that we will be able to learn more about each other, and talk about our lives in person :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

As all of the CS people, I am a very courious and openminded person, I love to meet new people and most of all to come in contact with different cultures and ways of living.
I am convinced that the best, and most authentic way to live(and not only visit) a place is to share the experience with locals.
