About Me


Travel to Know to Grow to Live to Travel.


Somehow, sometime, somewhere, we need to experience something together... only then you will be knowing the real me!


I do not have one... I have MANY... and often in contrast with one another :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Living in Rio de Janeiro for 6 months (until July 2012)


Give and let give!


Difficult to find something which does not interest me... I like popular music from all over the world and love dancing to it, I like theatre and good movies,I recently started playing diatonic accordion, unspoiled nature attracts me, and thus I rarely say no to a good trek, I love talking, I adore enjoying the company of interesting people...

Music, Movies, and Books

Festival and Indipendent movies are my favourite and drama generally wins over comedy... musicwise my tastes are quite broad... while on the reading side, most of the books I enjoy are novels from contemporary authors... to name a few names: Wong Kar Wai, Lars Von Trier, Ben Harper, Tracy Chapman, Tori Amos, Haruki Murakami, Jose Saramago.
