About Me

Hello, everyone! My name is Giuseppe and I'm from Somma Vesuviana, a small town close to the Vesuvius Volcan. It's really difficult to talk about me anyway I will try it.
I love travelling, exploring new places and get to know different cultures. I lived in six contries and recently I decided to move to New Zealand with a working holiday visa.
I also love cooking and learn different cuisine, it makes me really happy!
Respect, appreciation, and gratitude mean a lot to me. I truly value the kindness and hospitality shown to me by others. When I stay with someone, I treat their home as if it were my own, being careful and thankful for their generosity.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I joined Couchsurfing to meet people from around the world and learn about different cultures. It was a way for me to open my home to travelers and experience the generosity of others while exploring new places.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most important thing that I have done in my life is to always listen to my heart and follow my dreams.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd be really happy to teach you Italian and learn a language from you.
We could also cook together. I could make a traditional dish from Italy and you could make a dish from your country.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Share stories, music and cook Italian' s food.
