About Me


Feel, feed and follow my heart. Love. Find the way to feel satisfied and happy.


Hello! Is hard to describe myself because I'm not in one way even if some "basic things" they still the same, everything changeandchange, anyway..I'll try. more than 3 years that I left my last house and started to travel, so at the moment I'm nomad. I travel by hitchhiking-little walking(until my knees said me to STOP)-airplane-boat-little train. I travelled europe, some islands and Thailand (going there have been one of the best decision of my life, because healed my heart so much, expecially my 2 months living in a buddhist monastery to learn meditation! And now that I feel again to need a "cleaning" inside, I'm thinking to go back in Asia)
I like: good true connections, open mind and lovely people, experiencing new things, the swing, nature (I feel a deep spiritual connection with nature, much more than a simple pleasure), animals, meet different cultures, children, arts, connecting with people"heart to heart", meet traditional little villages , follow "the flowing of the universe" like in a stream, travel enjoying encounters with nice people, see different landscapes, sometimes I like things that children love(such as the swing, watching insects, playing, etc.), true smiles, sensitivity, empathy, deep conversations, deep or sweet silence, sweet laughter, and a lot of other things. I can be pretty shy but also completly not, I'm often very sensitive to my feeling and emotions, I can look calm person but I still have often chaos and a lot of talking in my mind...gggrrrrrr!I want to solve it!!
I don't like: formality, falsehood, breathing cigarette smoke, when people think badly of me, drinking alcohol( if we meet..instead than go out for a drink I would prefer go for a walk, pic nic, enjoying nice places, or some fun experience :-) ), pessimism (even if happen somentimes) and a lot of other things.
I can add that I'm sensitive to the preservation of the environment animal welfare and human rights, and I'm vegan (totally vegetarian..I eat only plant food)... can be an useful information.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


until now surfing and meeting people, enjoy time together..I hope one day to be able to host many people :-)
I dream when I'll have a house again to invite alla together all the beautiful lovely people that I met while my will be an amazing meeting!

I use couchsurfing from time to time, until now I've only surfedand met people

meeting and surfing


all the good and true connections, the little things, animal, arts, love, the essence of the life, nature, singing, playing music, free dancing-moving the body as you like, painting, strange good things, playing, natural medicine, new good things/places/experiences that I've never seen, travel, meditation, vegan food and cooking, this last period I'm enjoying learning and cooking rawfood repice and experimenting it, etc. Anyway..everything is changing constantly

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: traditional music, world music, relaxing music, celtic,dance hall, new age, good music for dance, etc., some 80s music because is funny, expecially to dance. I don't have a prefer kind of music, I normally I like good music and some "funny music"..but I remember almost nothing about the name of the artists or music tracks! :-) I like to play music, sing and dance
Movies: Dead Poets Society, Interstate 60, Kiki's Delivery Service, my neighbor Totoro,Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain, Microcosmos, all Tony Gatlif's movies (I love it!), a lot of movie with Robin Williams (he is great because he puts his heart), Miss Potter, but many other movies
books: I didn't finish to read any kind of book until that I found "The Alchemist"

Paulo Choelo. I read it so quickly and after that I "started to read". I alway liked Paulo Choelo books. I like read from time to time different kind of books but I'm not what they call "bookworm". Recently in Thailand I read some books about meditation and Buddhism very interesting. I'm travelling with "The power of now"..a book that for me is important and say many "true things".
