About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Stop worrying too much about the things I have to do and start focusing more on the things I love to do.

ABOUT ME

Restless, curious about life, always looking for a new challenge or goal to keep me going. I like to observe, learn, listen. Fascinated by the past, focused on the present, not especially worried about the future (if not in terms of what our species is doing to this wonderful planet).

PHILOSOPHY

Travelling is a state of mind.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The most amazing things I've seen or done belong to my dreams. But I have to admit that living with both my eyes open is quite amazing in itself, as well.
One of my most recent and quite thrilling experiences has been the "volo dell'angelo" (angel's flight) in Basilicata (South Italy). You basically fly from one mount peak to another, fastened to a steel rope. That was so cool! I truly felt like an eagle, completely free.

Teach, Learn, Share

As a foreign language teacher, I'd be happy to teach my own first language (that is Italian) to whoever might be interested.
Ready to learn anything interesting you can teach me.
