About Me


Living in a housetruck in Europe


Keen for adventure and discovery of as many places as possible. I enjoy the cultural exchange and talking to people from different corners of the world. I like to go to warm places and photograph with the intention of capturing unique views on day to day life.
Now have moved from backpacker lifestyle into a house truck so am going to see if I can still participate in the couchsurfing community via this.


Only buy swiss cheese by weight

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When Im in my hometown of Wellington I try to host when I can, If I can't offer a bed I'll attempt to make the couch surfers as comfortable in my town and let them in on the local knowledge. When Im travelling I use CS to try make links with the locals there. Also enjoy to cook for people and offer them a taste of my Italian heritage.


I enjoy it, its so useful for the low budget/explorer type traveller. Great for promoting exchanges.
