About Me

My name is Rosario but i prefer to be called simply Saro. I am an history degree who by chance started to work an hostel (the wonderful surprise of life) where for four years I enjoyed people from all around the globe and loved to show my city and in some case my wonderful Island. I think mine was the only hostel doing couchsurfing :) . Now I'm continuing it being a tourist guide on Mount Etna, the most wonderful Volcano in the world,and making enjoy his nature and the culture around it.
I am a simple guy who really love to drink and chatting (crazy parties time are gone) and when I'm travelling I prefer to enjoy the local ordinary life rather than sightseeing and, but this is more a my general life philosophy, I really love let things happen than to prgram too much...that's why I love couchsurfing.
Ok...I' don't know what other say about myself...I'm a very simple and uncomplicated guy, drink with me, give me a smile and we'll be friends :)
See you.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I started in this project like many others just because i didn't know where to stay the first time i did it...after hosting more people I just discovered in myself the simple pleasure to know people and make them feel like at home in my land, make them discover all the places i love and the soul of my place...I love the simple thing to enjoy the daily life of locals whatever it is,


I love meeting people and share experiences with all kind of arts, drink, smoke,parties with good music and nice people, concerts, foods, walking and cycling around towns or nature...I love play soccer with my friends, and the nights spent with them joking and drinking a good wine (but too often is an economical wine :) the sea and the high rocks...I love to stop the world in my pictures and read books that show me others imaginary worlds...and I could continue again...I just love all the little nice moments the life is able to give me, every little surprise is possible to meet on the way...Ill answer to your request just if you'll write "camomilla" in it ;)

Music, Movies, and Books

I have some preferred type of music (rock, post-rock, indie-rock, electro-rock, electronic, shoegaze, new-wave, jazz, lounge, old italian music and italian songwriters; and i play in a indie-rock band), books (Dostoevskij,Saramago, Ballard, Calvino, PK Dick, Eggers, Poe, Rimbaud, Foucault, French historian...), movies (Tarantino, Kubrick, Sorrentino, Lars Von Trier, Miyazaki, Fellini etc etc...), but like for everything I have a really relaxed approach, so doesn't matter what type of art it is or who does it, if it just give me something, if I just like it, it's the right thing for me :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I walked on the border of a crater,I've seen attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion and C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate, I slept inside the Colosseum and jumped from the rocks were flung on Ulisse.

Teach, Learn, Share

What can I teach you? uhm uhm...sicilian slang?? :) to play easy song with guitar or cook some simple to drive in sicily (who is able to drive in sicily can do it almost in everywhere :) to drive and to roll a cigarette at the same time. But what i want absolutely to teach you, it's to love Sicily, the only thing i can teach you so well!!!!!
