About Me


Sapere aude :)


I'm a little shy, but really very curious. I like very much to know new people, dive into their inner world...


Carpe diem.
Dum spiro, spero.
Ama et fac quod vis.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm just a beginner surfer, but I'm crazy about this project! For me, this is a stunning new experience and an opportunity to meet interesting new people from the farthest corners of the world!


I do love sports (climbing, running, skiing, skating, cycling), arts (singing, dancing, drawing, playing my harmonica) and, of course, traveling to the exciting book worlds and faraway countries.
