About Me

I don't like that much talking about myself actually...but I definitely enjoy listening to others, and well, if you really want to know more about me, feel free to ask, i'll try to answer.

And I think that people quite often judge too quickly...everyone deserves a chance!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


The first time was with a friend on a Road trip in central europe: Budapest, Bratislava, Praha...these are definitely some of the best memories ever!


It was my first couchsurfing experience. It is just the perfect way of travelling, not just sightseeing, but discover that makes the cities living: the people.


well...uh! science...i'm a nerd! (don't freak out, I'm also fun, sometimes.)(no just kiding!) ... biology...these tiny little proteins that precisely orchestrate life in each of the billions of cells that you have in your body...makes you wonder how is even possible to build a healthy entire being...I don't have the pretention, and will never have, of finding a cure for a disease, but this is definitely a place where I want to add my piece.

I sometimes dive deep inside painting... it is the only thing that frees my brain and puts it on hold.

I'm not a musical person..I just don't have the talent haha! But I'm taking the challenge with guitar lessons, we will see where this will lead me...

Music, Movies, and Books

I looove Herman Dune, omg and Tracy Chapman, Adam Green, Coldplay
basically, telling stories type of music with a melody that just makes you stop whatever you were doing at that time ...that magical song you have to put on replay until people around you get sick of it...

Well, these are a couple of my favourite movies.I don't think that anything special relates them to each other, i just enjoyed them!
La vita è bella (that's my iceaged favourite one)
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, Big Fish, the trilogy of the Befores, sunrise- sunset-midnight, the shawshank redemption, Humans...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Just going to Australia...changed me a lot, so to me, it is an amazing thing I've done.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you Croatian, it's more interesting than French ;) (no offense!)

Listen to fun (or not fun! I like them all!) stories from other couchsurfers... i'm always amazed by all those young people who manage to do so much in their lives...
