About Me

It's going to be hard to describe myself, I'm not good with words at all, but I'll try to start with what I like the most: traveling. Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things: air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky and€“ all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it. That's why I'm always looking for some cheap flights, for an opportunity to go away and come back richer. I hope I'll keep on making great friends and share my passions with them!

PHILOSOPHY

One hot day, a thirsty crow flew all over the fields looking for
water. For a long time, she could not find any. She felt very weak,
almost giving up hope. Suddenly, she saw a water jug below her. She flew straight down to see if there was any water inside. Yes, she could see some water inside the jug! The crow tried to push her head into the jug. Sadly, she found that the neck of the jug was too narrow. Then she tried to push
the jug down for the water to flow out. She found that the jug
was too heavy. The crow thought hard for a while. Then looking around her, she
saw some pebbles. She suddenly had a good idea. She started picking up the pebbles one by one, dropping each into the jug. As more and more pebbles filled the jug, the water level kept rising. Soon it was high enough for the crow to drink. Her plan had worked!

If you try hard enough, you may soon find an answer to your problem.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've been living in Seville (south Spain) for 1 year, as well as in Tunisia and the United States, where I've hosted and surfed a lot. It's always been a pleasure, because every experience gave me new friends, and most of the times we managed to see again. Now I'm back to my home city, Milan: my house is really small, and I still live with my family, hosting will be hard, but I'll be always glad to give a hand to anyone who visit my city and want to hang out!

Interests

My biggest passion is without any doubt traveling: I try to save little money every month to do what I like the most. When I'm bored I go out with one of my most faithful companion: my Nikon! I love photography.
