About Me


to get back to life in Bs As


Eh? Do you really want to hear all about me? I don't even know everything about me. I came here after a PhD in Lund, Sweden and after one year postdoc in Aachen, Germany. I live in Palermo in a two room flat. The view of the sunset from my window at the 7th floor sometimes can be breathtaking! I really like my new place.


Truth. Even if it hurts. It is deep inside us even if it is hard to listen to it. But it is there.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I really enjoy the idea of sharing. I am always available for giving suggestions about places where to go!
ah, and I would like to be hosted in case I need it.


well I did my first experience as a guest in november 2011 and it was super great!!!!!!!! before I have never couchsurfed with, but I slept at friends' places around Europe....ah well, and of course, friends came to visit me and couchsurfers too (all of them were really nice people), and further more... Do drunk people, sleeping on my couch after a party, count?


a lot of things, but I can make a short list:
-travelling ( ok not so original)
-traditional african dances ( i have been dancing traditional african dances for 10 years now..)
-meeting people

  • dancing
  • partying
  • traveling
  • socializing
  • history

Music, Movies, and Books

I DO LOVE CHUCK PALAHNIUK. I read Invisible Monsters 5 times (I know it sounds maniac)!
My " bible" is "Illusions: The Adventures Of A Reluctant Messiah" by Richard Bach.
Music..umh..that's easy: De Andre, The Doors, Janis Joplin, Lou Reed, Tom Waits..and so on.. I guess you can figure out after these names.But I also like reggae, among the others I really like Matisyahu

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-Iguazù Waterfalls. No words to describe it.
-Easter island. it is not a place to visit. it is an experience to do.
-Galapagos with my friend Florido!
