Join Couchsurfing to see Giovanni’s full profile.
[IMPORTANT: generally, I am in Sicily during the second half of December or August/September, during the other months I travel non-stop around the world so I CAN NOT host]
Explore the world... there is still a lot to do! I have visited 56 countries so far and I dream to see them all, one day.
-I am a geologist but my life took an unexpected turn and now I am a "travel deals hunter/ content editor" working remotely for Travel Deals Websites. This became a big advantage as I can live the "digital nomad lifestyle" jumping from one place to another around the world!
- During the period 2017-2019 I have lived in a "more or less stable way" in: Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Netherlands, Canada, Spain, Chile, Poland, Mexico and jumped in many more countries like Romania, Ukraine, Hungary, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Greece, Turkey and Japan!
I consider myself an easy going, positive and full of energy person!
University's life was a bit strict for me so when i could, from 20 to 25 years old, i booked a plane ticket and ran away. I really really love to travel, I hate monotony; this is the main reason why I decided to spend one Erasmus year in Portugal in 2011-12, experience that opened my eyes
Every moment is the right one to visit new cities, meeting people, making new experiences, have fun and relax in new places, living the life!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm not looking for a couch, I'm looking for new friends around the world!
After the experience, I like to keep in touch and, if possible, meet again. During summer I could help people who want to visit Sicily (and love to do it) and offer them an accommodation.
I lived in Coimbra (Portugal) and our amazing Erasmus house was opened to couchsurfers!
- I met a couchsurfer in Saint Petersburg who helped me, before going there, giving me many suggestions!
