About Me

I'm travelling around the world by bicycle.


I'm 32 years old, I start my journey the 17th of February 2013 in Ravenna, near Venice, where I was born. Before leaving I used to manage a Restaurant on the beach in Italy. So I can also cook!! I'm graduated in Marketing but I prefer live and work in place more funny and friendly than an office!
I speak English, Spanish and of course Italian.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

In Couchsufing I meet always wonderful people


I like spending time with old friends and new. Sometime I play football and usually I read big books..I prefer paper letters than Facebook..Now my goal is a long world tour by bicycle . I'm planning to bike for 6 now I'm in my half way home.
By bike because it goes slow..and I can meet many people in the countries I'm visiting.
I like cooking...I like writing...I love to stay outside.. I love to drink a glass of wine with a new friend.
