living life abundantly
I'm back to my home country after an 11 month working holiday in New Zealand, an incredible experience which changed my life in many respects. recently moved to Siena, working in a big resort in beautiful Tuscany, where I can finally 100% exploit my knowledge of foreign languages. ;)
"Life is a sacred yes" (Nietzsche, philosopher)
do as much as you can, see as many places and meet as many people as possible.
never refuse an invitation, never turn down an opportunity, because you don't know what life has prepared for you.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm not able to offer a couch yet but I'm looking forward to meeting new people. available for hanging out and doing stuff together, particularly outdoor activities, hiking and travelling.
I've already couchsurfed in Sweden, Fiji and all over New Zealand, hanging out not only with my hosts, but with my hosts' friends. this way it's extremely easy to get to know new people. :) when I'm based in a place for a longer while I love to take part in CS meet-ups and I'm always happy to find fellow travelers to share trips with!
never hosted unfortunately.

Music, Movies, and Books
rock music in many of its forms, pop rock (Nickelback, Simple Plan, Greenday, Goo Goo Dolls), progressive rock (Pink Floyd, Muse, Serj Tankian), folk rock (Mumford&Sons) italian alternative rock (Afterhours, Io?Drama, Verdena).
favourite genre probably psychological and spy thrillers (like Scorsese's Shutter Island or The Departed, to understand).
with books is just impossible to decide - every book is worth reading.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
for someone who's never done any extreme sports before getting to New Zealand, my recent experiences bungy jumping from Kawarau Bridge, Queenstown, and sky diving on Lake Taupo count as amazing things I've done, don't they?! ;)
Teach, Learn, Share
one of the only things I'm really good at -and could be one of my future possible jobs- is teaching languages. :)
