About Me

CURRENT MISSION

making the way by walking, making the life by living

ABOUT ME

About me? I like so much travel, maybe too much. I can't stay in the same place and do the same stuff for too long time. I can't image my life whit out moving, changing, travel.
My English is not perfect, but it becomes much better after some pints of beer, above all English beer.

PHILOSOPHY

"non c'e' strada dove andare, si fa strada camminando - there is no road where to go, the road is made by walking"

"Mi hanno sempre fatto credere che nell'incertezza e' meglio prendere...ma se io prendo chi e' che da? - they always said me that in the uncertainty the taking is better...but if I take, who gives?"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Giving you a warm welcome and an enjoyable time in Abruzzo. I can bring you through my region, from the sea to the mountain, between picturesque villages and ancient castles, eating ARROSTICINI and looking for amazing landscape, traditional experience or funny nights in Pescara's movida.

Interests

All sorts of journey: traveling, reading, writing, taking pictures, listening traditional music, knowing people, speaking with them, telling about them, listening their stories, understanding their customs, go out in a city and get lost, look at my city and discover new things.
I love photography and photojournalism; geographic, ethnographic and social reportage. I grow up reading National Geographic.
I like all sports, specially football and rugby.....but I can't play rugby...I'm too little. But on the opposite I can cope quite good with playing football.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have to many books I like better to make a list...maybe "Theorie du voyage" by Michel Onfray, or "Esperimento con l'India" by Giorgio Manganelli, or "Hijo de ladron" by Manuel Rojas....ok, stop speaking of travel..."O Evangelo secundo Jesus Cristo" by Jose' Saramago is one of my favourite books and is not about travel. Another book I love is "Dracula" by Bram Stoker. In fact I really love goth atmosphere and setting, and books or movies about vampires, that are not just horror...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Looking the sunrice at Stonhenge during the Solstice. It was amazing and I really felt the rythem and the power from the earth...something of esoteric..

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach photography and I can share my knowledge about archaeology and story and about my region. I traveled in Italy, specially in the south so I could give information about. I can teach making good pasta and how make my "sangria"....
