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.


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

I would say I love to wander around the world whenever I have the opportunity to do so.
When travelling, I am also looking for secret spots to relax my soul :)

I am from Italy, my name's GAIA (which means "cheerful", and probably that's the reason why I always try to enjoy my life to the fullest) and I'm 28.
My hometown is Genova, in the beautiful Liguria region.
Portofino and Cinque Terre are the most visited and known ligurian destinations among tourists, but I definitely can tell you we have lots of other "hidden gems". I would be very pleased to show my favourite areas to you, when I am around!

As I said before, I truly love to travel and work in different countries, so I started my "world tour experience " working in 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, spent some time in different cities, met lovely people.
After that, I've literally jumped from Hawaii to Oz and I lived & worked in Brisbane , Australia. While in Australia I applied to work on cruiseships and started my contract in Europe, with an amazing 7 months tour around Polynesia, Samoa , Fiji , New Zealand, South America, etc.
Has been a great experience!!!
Without planning I then ended up working in Lymington, UK for 1 year and now I am back at sea, on luxury yachts.


I definitely like my region and I'll be happy to show you its cool sides whenever I am 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 (low budget =D ) ,

SKATING (rollerblading as well) ,


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

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