About Me


You only get to live once, so why not enjoy it. Life is too short to deal with drama, so ignore the haters and live life to the fullest.


Welcome to my page.
I'm so excited to share the CS experience with people who love travelling and finding new cultures and places =)
Well, let me start off by telling you some about me...

I would say ..I'm a world traveler !
Always looking for secret spots where relaxing my soul :)

I'm Italian, my name's GAIA and I'm 26..!
My hometown is Genova, in Italy.
I started my "world tour experience " working in Disneyworld (Orlando,US) for 1 year, trying to travel as much as I could during my time off.
Then I decided to travel around the States for a few months, I loved freedom and spent some time in different cities, met lovely people.
After that, I've literally jumped from Hawaii to Oz and I lived in Brisbane , Australia.
Then… while in Australia I applied to work on a cruiseship and got the job, started my contract in Europe and ended up back in NYC , USA after an amazing 6 months tour around Polynesia, Samoa , Fiji , New Zealand, South America, etc.
Has been a great experience, NOW LET'S SEE WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS! :)

*UPDATE : currently living in south UK since may 2015 ! :)

I'm a sweet & optimistic person and obviously try to have as much fun as possible =)
So I'm genuinely a nice person, but get on my bad side and I can be really
What I can say more is that I'm a reliable girl and I love Couchsurfing ;-)
I've lived in a small town near Genova (Recco) for 22 years..
I moved to my new house in 2011, right in the centre of Genova city (about 5minutes by bus to the main station of Genova Brignole ;) ) While buying all the stuff for my new room, my first thought has always been a couch for you, my CS potential friend ;) ;)
Then, I could find a bed for me =p
I like my region and I'll be happy to show you its cool sides when I'm back to Italy !!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In addition to know people, I believe that to live truly a place, even just for a few days, you must live it from inside , with someone who really knows it!


During the last few years I met up some people in my city to show them around,chat, have a drink and also hosted csers at my place…
I met many couchsurfers around the US , been hosted in NYC , Hawaii and Australia , I'm looking forward to my next CS experience!!
I really like CS : I briefly wanna live like a local, I like to know what you think about your city,and I'm interested in meeting new people from various backgrounds


I am passionate about

Travelling (when I've enough money =D ) ,

SKATING (rollerblading as well) ,

PLAYING the PIANO (studied it for 9 years) ,

DANCING (clubbing..but always dancing alone at home as well ;D ) ,

PHOTOGRAPHY: During the last few years I've been taking tons of photos,I love doing it and love people who take a lot of those :

* a photo is a piece of life and it's very closed to memory process (a photo recalls an event) and to travel ("remembering the past is a form of mental time travel; it frees us from the constraints of time and space and allows us to move freely along completely different dimensions" - Eric Kandel)

WRITING LONG & original letters,I love "snail mail" with people from other cities/countries

MUSIC! I was born wearing headphones. If you see someone with giant headphones..Yeah that's me!!

Reading books & MANGAS
Surfing The Net (& couches :) )

Im on here to make friends and host people from all over the world so if you wanna chat with me give me a holla =D
