About Me

I spent the last 8 years travelling around the world opening myself to new experiences, people, jobs. I try to take the good out of unpleasant situations and learn something new from everyone I meet.
I am thrilled by new adventures and challenges: that's what keeps me alive.
I like writing (here's my travel blog and I wrote a book about a recent trip from Italy to Norway on an old Vespa 125.
I spent the last year working in a yoga and meditation centre in Thailand and found there a spiritual dimension I resonate with.
I am currently trying to make my way as a stock photographer.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I always stick to CS when travelling to get to know people and make friends. I take part to meetings and local events and I host when I am at home.
I have had many great experiences with Couchsurfing, both surfing and hosting and never had a regret.


Scuba diving, hitch-hiking, yoga, meditation, vipassana, writing, sailing, photography, horse riding, living in close contact with nature, cooking food (I'm vegetarian). And everything else.
