I have been living in Istanbul 2013-2016 working as casting director, actor, painter and Italian language teacher. Now I'm back to my hometown Arezzo.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I used to organize several CS activities in Italy and in Istanbul.
Hosting & "couchsurfing" a lot.
Some of my CS guests and hosts have become great friends of mine, although not keeping in touch much. Anyway through CouchSurfing I have experienced unpleasant situations too. Unfortunately a lot of people misuse this wonderful community of travellers considering it just as a free of charge alternative to hostels.
