Protecting remaining areas of freedom and keeping bikes straight
I'm a 29 year old, graduated in political science and journalism, currently working with a human rights NGO. I travel as much as I can to balance everyday life with adventure and exploration. I'm used to freewheeling depending on the circumstances of the moment.
I would describe myself as an easy going and friendly goat, always interested in meeting new people and exploring their side of reality. I genuinely enjoy cooking and I am looking forward to inviting you for dinner at your table along with gentle chats.
I am respectful and well accustomed to house sharing (having lived in shared houses for years). Basically, I do know the appropriate balance attributable to decent guests that can switch from jolly fellows to unnoticeable when expected.
I try to live without a priori or primary thoughts, in my social interractions as in my approach to socio cultural realities. I am comitted to learning as much as I can. I always try to keep my mind open and to conduct my life and my personal philosophy as such.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I like to discover foreign countries and meet their inhabitants. The social aspect of travelling is very important to me. I heard about this couchsurfing project through a friend who triggered a immense compulsion in me and passion for travels. I immediately decided I wanted to participate in this open minded process and to a platform that proposes an alternative and ingenious way of approaching globalization.
I've experienced CouchSurfing in different ways (hosting, beeing hosted or just meetings) and in several locations (mostly Eastern Europe, North Africa, California and Belgium) and I'm keen to pursue the experience and to convince people that it's the best way to discover the world and its occupants.

Teach, Learn, Share
I'm interrested in photography and I can teach the basic skills of the argentic method. I always travel with an argentic camera so I can show you some stuffs if you want to be able to manipulate a traditional camera. I also like to cook, I'm not a professional but I could make you taste some good meals.
What I Can Share with Hosts
A good meal and honest conversations.
