About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

Hello! Actually...two years that I left my last house and started to travel. I traveled by hitchhiking-little walking(until my knees thsy said to STOP)-airplane-little train.I traveled around europe, then when I was in Istanbul for one month living and working a bit in a hostel,I decided to go to Thailand, and exploring asia for the first time...and going out of Europe for my first time. So..happened that I've been in Thailand for 6 months, spending my winter there. 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! Than back to Italy again for some months. After I traveled Romania for two months, being with nice people, knowing a bit their culture, discovering nice places, culture, people. Now I'm again in Spain, and tomorrow I'll go back to Canary islands! let's see what happen there :-)
I am a poor traveler!..that's mean that I travel in very very cheap way. This is just a bit of my travel story, but I don't know how to describe myself because everything is changing. But I can try..
I like: to experience new things, the swing, nature (I feel a deep spiritual connection with nature, much more than a simple pleasure), meet different cultures, arts, meet traditional little villages , be with people "heart to heart", 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 don't like: breathing cigarette smoke, when people think badly of me, drinking alcohol\ go out for a drink( if we meet..go for a walk instead or some fun experience could be a very better alternative :-) ), 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.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: all the traditional world music, ska, classic,dance hall, new age, etc., some 80s music because is funny, expecially to dance. Normally I like the good music..but I remember almost nothing about the name of the artists or music tracks! :-) I like to play music and sing
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.
