About Me

First, check my travel vlog on Youtube:

Ok, so. This is always the most difficuly part. I studied Neuroscience, but wanted to be an archeologist and also a physicist and above all a writer. Still in time to be a writer, though. Im trying to say that Im utterly indecisive: I would like to do everything, thats way I am constantly in a hurry. Then, I am untidy, incoherent, a little bit big-headed, and exceedingly weird. But also talkative, sassy, intolerance-intolerant (I love to shock bigots!), and curious, very curious, about everything, just like a baby.

Things I hate: hot greasy stuff on my skin, meowing cats, big-headed people, superhero movies, Nicholas Cage, most Hollywood movies, the pizza you get outside Italy with a creepy yellowish cheese that they claim its mozzarella but its NOT, pesto on salad (never do that!), vegetables on pasta with tomato sauce (never ever do that!).

Things I love: people, Italian food, Greek food, Belgian waffles, authentic Chinese food (not that greasy overfried crap you usually get outside China), exotic food in general, exotic stuff, old towns with narrow streets, old builings, old libraries, dogs, frogs, museums and art galleries, the smell of loose tobacco, the bright colour of moss on rainy days, the even white of snow.

Current mission: take it easy, which is actually very difficult.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

"He did not think of himself as a tourist; he was a traveler. The difference is partly one of time, he would explain. Whereas the tourist generally hurries back home at the end of a few weeks or months, the traveler, belonging no more to one place than to the next, moves slowly, over periods of years, from one part of the earth to another. Indeed, he would have found it difficult to tell, among the many places he had lived, precisely where it was he had felt most at home."

Interests

Reading, writing pretentious stories, indie movies, indie music, techno parties, painting colors, fashion (with a rather bizarre sense of it), artsy stuff in general, nerdy videogames, travelling (really?!), hiking in God-forsaken lands, swimming, diving, photography, yoga, tai qi, meditation, capoeira, learning new things.
