About Me

I was born and raised in italy. 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.
I am passionate about sports but also history, philosophy, religion, arts. If you have the same interests I can show you Barcelona telling you about the history, architecture and artistic movements we have had in this beautiful city.
About sports: I play padel tennis, table tennis, beach volley and football to say few. I love hiking, Catalunya is also beautiful in that sense!!


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

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

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.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I live in a shared flat in the center of Barcelona. When I host I put a bed more in my room so you can sleep there.
