About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travelling, find myself.

ABOUT ME

I was born and raised in italy, but as many couchsurfer I like travelling. I started to travel after I finish a long relationship few years ago. I like any kind of sports, know new people from many different cultures and have fun with them. If you want more information about me feel free to add me on facebook: http://facebook.com/marconappo or on skype:marconappo so we can chat a bit.

PHILOSOPHY

"Rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness... give me truth." (Henry David Thoreau)

"Happiness is real only when shared" (Alexander Supertramp)

The majority of people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. Chris, nevertheless, finds this way of life dull and meaningless. He believes the very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. That joy of life comes from endless encounters with new experiences and an ever-changing horizon (Krakauer 57).

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. (Robert Frost)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I didn't know about couchsurfing when I was in Italy. I started to use it in Spain as a surfer and I met many nice people there. Few years ago I moved in Prague for a while and there I hosted many people from all over the world. I travel a lot because of my job now, I have been living in Buenos Aires, Cambridge(UK) and now in Barcelona and I always like to partecipate to couchsurfing events and and host travellers when possible.

Interests

Sports, Travel, Philosophy, Psychology, Theology, Computer science, Cinema, Slow food, Cooking

Music, Movies & Books

Into the wild, Dead poets society, Inception, Black Swan, A Clockwork Orange, Braveheart, Blade Runner, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Man on fire... many others!!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I travelled a lot in the last few years, these are some places I will never forget: San Francisco, Las Vegas, Yosemite, Venice, Rome, Abu Simbel, Casa Battlo, Charles bridge in Prague, Santiago de Compostela, Iguazu falls, Tikal, Rio de Janeiro, New York City.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like speaking with other people about many topics like psychology, philosophy, theology and travelling. I don't know if I am good enough to teach something to somebody (maybe computer science if somebody is interested in, or italian!!) but I think everybody can learn something from anybody else just sharing his point of view about life like I usually love to do.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I have a big room in a shared house when I host a put a bed more so you can sleep there. There is a bathroom and a kitchen but we share that with the other people in the house so I expect my guest to be considerate about that. I love barcelona so I am really happy to show you around, typical touristic places or not and going out with my friends, if you want, you are welcome!!
