About Me

finishing my novel

Hello this is Manu from Amsterdam, originally Italian but I grew up in Holland.

This was my time off on a looong round-the-world exploration, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and California, Galapagos, Brazil, Peru, Aruba, Canary Islands, Ecuador & more.....all places I'd never been to. I gave up my job and apartment for this, it was a dream come true! My objective on this trip was to see how others live, experience the daily life, see musicians play as I am one, learn to cook new dishes and most of all...learn again what it's like to not plan too much and go with the flow :-)

I worked in an office and organized d.i.y. gigs in my spare time. I volunteered at my local independent music centre.

I always like to cook and have good conversations with a glass of wine.
I've also played in bands, bass guitar and punk singing. I like going to live shows.
And I equally enjoy being lazy at home, park or beach....with a pile of books.
When travelling I like nature, new cities, old cities, new customs.

Looking for: place to stay, cooking with locals, people to go to cool shows with.

open mind, sense of adventure, dose of humility, willingness to get out of the comfort zone, positive spirit.
