About Me


Working in a amazing hostel in Bari, meeting lovely people, showing them the best of my Puglia!


Italian, grew up in the wonderful region of Puglia (NatGeo and National Geographic think the same ^^

I enjoyed 20 years in Italy, normal daily life growing up with the best grandma food and the sun who I took for granted... So one day I got a flight. After a month another one. After few days again... going on without stopping. You know when you just breathe with no ceiling...? and when you've the energy to be yourself, far from home?
The world feeds me. When you see something beautiful how can you say it's over or too late to see more?
Life is an incredible surprise, I deeply believe in destiny.
Passionate about photography, music, cinema, art, nature, languages, food.
Canada changed me, I spent 8 month in Vancouver and I still can't realize the incredible beauty of this city. Still waking up hoping I'm still there, having a little chance to smile with all that beauty in front of me with my feet in the Pacific... one day again ;)
One of the best memories is the on the road trip across California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona... suspended in the total beauty.
I spent one year in France, in the little nice city of Rennes, enjoying the nice quiet French life and now I'm back working as receptionist in a very cool hostel!


You only live once.
