About Me


To think quadrimensionally


For my friends I am Zimba (I got this nickname ages ago), a lazy guy but one that never refuses to meet for a couple of beers, or for playing music together, or just for a chat. I like to travel when I have the chance to and to meet interesting people, hosting or being hosted.


Personal philosophy? Hmm, sometimes I feel like it's too sad to talk about it, because many things I used to believe in seem to vanish and become meaningless as I grow older... But there are still some ideals I cling to, for example people's kindness, so I hope I'll find someone who'll give me hospitality, and I'll be happy to let him or her sleep on my sofa...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I found these lines in the poem "Christabel" by Samuel T. Coleridge:
"and I beseech your courtesy,
This night,to share your couch with me."


I couchsurfed in Canterbury(UK), Tampere(Finland), Oslo(Norway), Marseille, Lille(France), Munich(Germany), Copenhagen(Denmark), Ljubljana (Slovenia), Zagreb (Croatia), Belgrade (Serbia), Sofia (Bulgaria), Bursa, Izmir (Turkey), Haifa, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Golan Heights (Israel), Brussels (Belgium).


My main interest is probably music; as Nietzsche said, life would be a mistake without it. Then I like books - I just finished studying modern literatures at the university of my town - and am quite passionate about cinema. And sport of course, uhm very common interests, I'm just realizing... Well, I like astronomy, I collect old coins and do some drawing from time to time.
