About Me

CURRENT MISSION

do not care about weather forecasts

ABOUT ME

Well, when it comes to describe myself ... I always get my neuron blocked ;-) Anyway, something I'll have to say even this time and here. I am very lucky guy born in Italy (Romagna) on a hot summer (15th August) some years ago and I landed on this wonderful planet on very nice spot, surrounded by very nice, warm people and since then I started my journey discovering new countries, people, attitudes, behaviors, skills, different moods, a lot of activities and fabulous nature outdoors. Nature always fascinated me very much and I got always very excited about exploring new nature areas. My fortune now is that I have been able to base my job on this passion I have. I am very lucky!

I travel like Jane Goodall ! You are well known for traveling around and dealing with wild primates, but the people you share the hostel dorm rooms with can sometimes have a human-like charm anyway. Try to resist using them for slave labor. What type of traveler are you? Take BootsnAll's Travel Quiz to find out.

PHILOSOPHY

My philosophy is that in order to get what you want in life you have to step out and make some efforts and fight to grab it. Nothing will fall from the sky. I also want to be respectful and active in a peaceful way.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Overall my couchsurfing experience has been great both as a guest and as a host. Mostly, It is about meet and talk and getting to know people. Learning new things about new places. Different attitudes and habits, different lifestyles, breaking mental and cultural barriers.

Interests

I am interested in anything that deals with nature, but I also have a tremendous passion for motorcycles, especially racing! Lately I am also a beginner in Yoga, Rock climbing, + learning new languages (always;-)

Music, Movies & Books

I am not a picky person when it comes to music, but I do like pop rock. I like to read a lot too.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Live and work in NY (Scarsdale) in a Manor House at a Park with Greenhouse and live animals just attached to it. Traveling, traveling, traveling, traveling, traveling ... Just go with 1 way ticket to Ireland and just a big backpack. Racing Motocross. Cross Europe on a motorcycle. Visiting wonderful Natural Parks (North America & Europe mostly). Ringing Flamingos. skying in Norway. smoked sauna in Finland.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well when it comes to nature I am good at birdwatching, and from March to September I lead small birdwatching tour groups on a small boat in the lagoon "Pialassa della Baiona!, which is very nice. I can also talk a lot about motorcycles and bicycles (sport in general!). I am keen at yoga/pilates. Off course languages..
