About Me

ABOUT ME

I'm a lover of beautiful things.
And as a lover I make my main activity out of my passion.
That's why I dare call myself a "hunter of beauties".
So beautiful landscapes, beautiful countries, beautiful people, beautiful minds, beautiful smiles, eyes, carachters, ...those are my targets. Even if you don't think to own them, I'd like to try and find them.
I'm here to discover marvellous people, to learn from them, to listen to them, to make my life great by meeting amazing people, by getting charmed by new cultures, being left breathless by every experience I can do.

PHILOSOPHY

It's not about changing the world, it's about bringing respect back among our people, to discover the richness of variety =)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

If I'm free I'm happy to visit other countries and meet couchsurfers and if I'm not traveling I'm glad to host people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Overall positive.
Thanks to couchsurfing I found friends and incredible people with whom I could share my travel or who sustained me while I was abroad alone.
Nevertheless there were a few people I met who did not really understood what cs is about and misunderstood my being nice to everybody.

Interests

I like new experiences, I'm open, curious, and whatever can be tried, I'm here to experience it.
My interest can sound way dull but it's really to meet new people, to get fascinated by listening to new stories, to know new cultures, particularly I'm fascinated by asian culture.
Since about one year I discovered one of my greatest passions which is boxing. This is a sport I could do for hours and hours. And also when I go and watch it, my heart beats like a fool! =D
Others interests are certainly the other sports (running, swimming, and martial arts), nature, arts, and history. =)

Music, Movies & Books

All the books of Tiziano Terzani.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Staying awake until the morning just to watch the rising sun in the most beautiful places I know.
Sleeping in the nature, in a wheat field (surrounded by all those golden plants...wow).
Rolling myself on sand dunes during a full moon night.

Having an animated discussion with a peace nobel price...to find out that ...=D

My first boxing official fight...

Finding myself completely immersed in the chinese culture for 3 months.
Living with them, sharing their costumes, wondering because of our differences and learning a lot about China and chinese mentality.

Traveled and done everything in China exactly like a chinese. Living with a few yuan per day, traveling for 15 hours on "hard seats"

Visited and lived for a couple of weeks in a small village on the countryside of Henan with only 1'000 unhabitants ... I was the first foreigner ever who went there!

I trained everyday for 4 months the famous "shaolin kung fu" and got impressive results!

Ran 25 km in a bit more than 2 hours (for me it's an amazing achievement!)

And many other things that I can't remember right now...

Countries I've Visited

Czech Republic, Italy, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

Belgium, China, Germany, Switzerland
