About Me


To walk on the sand of every beach in the world, to go where no man has ever gone before


I'm a very courious person. I like everything related to art and culture, from acrhitecture to cuisine. Everything. I'm a great fan of music, especially rock.


Buddhism.Whatever you must do in life do it with conviction an coherence between waht you think and do. Love and let people love you. Bring back to the world the most of what it has given to you. All these features are just a part of the path towards Ilummination.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would like to help promote this very creative activity.
I would like to meet people from every corner of this planet and share my experiences and thoughts with them. There are lots of good hearted people out there who deserve to be listened to and from whom I ould learn a lot.


I have not met many people since i have not been very active in this social network for some years but I'm eager to begin using this tool in the best way.
