About Me

CURRENT MISSION

sounds banal but it is so true: you only live once!!!

ABOUT ME

The way people and my friends consider me: usually very "simpatica" ("nice/friendly" are the closest words in English), and "solare" (a wonderful Italian word which comes from "sun"...meaning someone pleasant to be with because he/she can involve you in his/her enthusiasm for a lot of different things).
I ADORE sun, sunlight, summer,sea. Darkness depresses me, as well as rain...
I am a very helpful person (I can't say "no" if I am asked to do a favour), very well mannered (thanks to mom and dad!)and polite.
Very sensitive, which does not help in life !
I am the kind of person who wants to do everything, read everything, see everything!!!The fact that this is impossible stresses me...Do not hide my feelings or real opinions even if unplesant...maybe sometimes I am too sincere...

If I like someone I HAVE to let him/her know, as well as I HAVE to congratulate with actors when I see some show I really enjoyed.I think people who work hard for something should know they were appreciated!
I am very independent and do not like people who depend on others as a "way of life" because - to me- it is a "state of mind"!
There are things I would do in a different way if I had a second chance...
Bye for now!

PHILOSOPHY

SInce I was born (without asking ;-) ), I try to enjoy life as much as I can,although I feel very limited by a number of things.I do not feel really FREE. I think you enjoy things, ANYTHING, because you know it will not be forever (I mean, even holidays would become boring if they last forever...or no ? ;-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am ready to host a couchsurfer (1 at a time)only during week ends. Anyway, I am and always will be ready to take people out for a drink or to show the secret beauties of my city

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

not yet experienced

Interests

foreign languages (English, French, German and Spanish), cinema, theater (exp. musicals), writing, exhibitions, conferences (exp. presentation of books)...Many interests except sports :I mean, I do swim very well, I manage with skiing and tennis but do not practise regularly and do not attend a gymnasium...I find it so boring!!!I love walking though, expecially when I am visiting a new city...it's the best way to discover it!

Music, Movies, and Books

My latest favourite movies: BABEL (Inarritu is a genius!)and THE DEPARTED (best Scorsese's movie ever).
But since I adore going to cinema, I could mention hundreds of films I loved!
Music: my fabourite group is SIMPLY RED which I buy blind, but also many many others,and Elisa is one of my Italian favourite singer
Books: I start reading so many books at a time!!!. The latest is "Yo no sufro por amor" by a brilliant Spanish woman writer...I need to learn some more things about men ;-))
ANd I am reading books by Italian writers (Severgnini, Terzani)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Oh my God! Amazing things? I can range from amazing beaches or places/cities to fantastic musicals! Will think about it. What makes me understand I am being overwhelmed with emotion ?I can't help tears rolling down my face (it happened for instance when I saw Mont St. Michel in France or some wonderful beaches and sunsets in Guadaloupe and Seychelles or the Leaning Tower of Pisa - don't know why...I saw better things- and so many musicals).

Teach, Learn, Share

Languages, of course...Italian for foreigners?!?!?
