About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I'm currently heading east (mostly hitchiking) toward asia, my goal is to reach the far east from Italy without taking planes

ABOUT ME

As I'm not very good in describing myself, I'll make it short to avoid evergreen formulas like openminded or easygoing (which i admit I had on my previous description). I like to be independent (in every way) and I enjoy loneliness (the good one, the one you choose yourself) even if I'm perfectly aware how much I need the contact with other persons. I'd rather discover a new culture by talking with people then by interrogating its monuments.
