About Me

Current mission

Run the life 'round the world and elevate myself with my mind soul & my music! Pursuing my ideal of being master of the art of living... simply pursue my ideal of excellence in everything I do, working or playing, in fact at my eyes I'm always doing both!

G R O W I N G _ U P _ A G A I N S T _ MY _ W I L L

Live instead of being alive: the ART OF LIVING...
Who is master of the art of living makes little distinction between their work and their play, including his own labor and his leisure, between your mind and your body, your own study and recreation, his love and religion... almost, doesn't know what the two, simply pursues his ideal of excellence in everything he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or is playing here at your eyes, in fact, he is always doing both...

"Don't Make Up Your Face, Make Up Your Brain First!"

What can I say about myself?
Born in the middle of '70s in a small town in Puglia, region in the south of Italy… All the days in my life, I’m living the life I was born to live as better I can... nothing more. Feelin' alive, happy to meet people and various cultures, to travel, to share experience: "work to live not live to work is one of my maxim and my goal… How to describe myself? First try to chew me then... Blinds your eyes, Keep Calm & Dance

@^_^@ A smile is the best thing one can wear! @^_^@

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing Experience

Definitely, Which People do I enjoy? Surely... I like enjoy with eclectic & unconventional people!

I surfed in a real smaller room with 12 other ppl...
I hosted an austrian guy, Klaus, for more than 7 months...
I hosted from 1 to 23 guests in my little maybe cosy flat... I've learned how to develop the space in vertical way! Here an example of what my guests said...

"Today is my last day in Milano with these boys... and the thought of leaving their home brings upon me a sadness which I normally experience when going away from family. They have treated me like their brother, cooked for me, taken me out to parties, chatted away till the wee hours of the morning and the entire experience has only reinforced my belief that couchsurfing is the next best thing after sex. Any community that brings the world closer and to your door step can only be a good thing.
Whether you have a family or not, feel like you do not have time or might be uncomfortable with hosting strangers in your house, my only words of advice to you would be let do it and marvel at how such a simple act of humanity will change your life!
People make the world and your world will only be enriched when you open the doors of your life to them..."
by Rohan T. - http://www.stuckinamoment.com.au/milano - https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/tramans

“Eveytime, after travelling through... I always bring back home with me some new friendship new experience... something i enjoy most, catching sunsets, living postcards, getting chance to meet diversity and accepting people the way they are. I don't like material world much, and I don't like to judge others, surfers are those kinds of people who don't care for material things, who give equal chance to everyone, who enjoy present being happy with the best thing they have and that is FREEDOM ^_^
I am the one who is trying to live without borders. Since now i met many people who became my friends, people from all over the world. I like to see & hear positive attitudes about life, life with smile, life with open minds, with will to fight for life :)"

## SEARCHING FOR A COUCH? SOME FRIENDLY ADVICE! :)

We have lots of new members looking for a couch!
CS is not just about filling in where you are from and then posting a request here, THINK people, if a total stranger who you knew nothing about (no picture, no personal details etc) asked could they stay in your home would you let them?
We were all new members once and had to start somewhere, but the best way to get started is to do a little research, invest a little time and fill in your profile so we know who you are, if you are arriving with friends, get them to fill in a profile too.
Check out https://www.couchsurfing.com/about/tips/ and use the advise listed there...
or here for a brief description https://www.couchsurfing.com/about/safety/
and http://etramping.com/couchsurfing-or-sexsurfing-what-is-the-difference-nowadays/

## HOW TO REQUEST A COUCH in 10 Easy Steps:

1. Please do not post a couch request on a Place Page! (the page with these conversations is a Place Page)
2. At the top of the page, there is a text box that says, “Where would you like to go?” Enter the name of the city you want to visit in that box, and press the blue “Surf” button.
3. You will be taken to the “Place Page” for the city you entered in the text box. Please do NOT post your couch request in that place's conversations!
4. A few lines down on the page, under where it says (for example), “Milan Area,” you'll see the phrase, “Find a place to stay for Any traveler(s).” The “Any” is a drop-down box. Click on it, and choose the number of surfers you will have. Click the blue “Go!” button.
5. A list of hosts will appear. Click on the hosts' names or pictures to view their profiles.
6. IMPORTANT: Read the profiles thoroughly! Especially the references! Look for people with similar interests, or who seem like you'd connect with them in some way. It will give them a reason to want to host you, and also help you write a personalized couch request. Choose some people to send requests to.
7. IMPORTANT: Use the “Send CouchRequest” button. For example, my profile will say “Send CouchRequest to Niccolò!”
8. In the couch request box, choose your dates, how you're arriving, and how many surfers there will be. Tell the host about yourself and what you're doing, and tell them why you want to meet them. Write something that makes them WANT to host you! You can also check the box that says, “Other nearby hosts can send me invitations to stay with them.” This means other hosts in the area will see whatever you type in the top box about yourself and your trip.
9. Click “Send CouchRequest”
10. Wait to hear back from hosts. Wait for offers from hosts in the area. Send more requests.
11. If ALL ELSE fails, some places have an emergency/last minute couches group. Milan's is here:

## HOW MANY REQUESTS I NEED SEND OUT? “Might I seem rude sending request to more hosts?” :

Send out a few more requests!
Usually surfers need to send from 3/5 to 12/15 crequest to different hosts depending on particular city you are looking for a couch.
Important is to not send "copy & paste" requests, but fix the first "generic" window (that appear when you start the couchrequest tool) and personalize the next window related to the host... it means you must read profiles! It is how it should work :)
Hosts know that surfers send more requests and they cannot say you that you are bad!
If more hosts accepted you, you are just lucky! Then, decide your deserved host and accept him... and do not forget to write to the other ones saying that "it is a pity but... another host accepted me/us before... or blablabla..."
Good luck! But if you don't find a host:
- have a look on SOS group (close to your due date)
- have a look on main Place page of the city if there is an activity/gathering already organized, so you should join them: face to face you will increase your chances :p
- see if others want to meet up so you can still have experiences with locals or foreigners in Milan.

I hope the above information helps you find a host – but please remember, CS isn't about getting a free place to stay, it's about experiences and connections!
Happy Hunting and Happy Surfing people! ^_^

## Some tips for the perfect couch request (specially in summertime!)

Hello my dear CS members! I had a lot of couch surfers staying at my place and some of them were really stressed out about finding a host. In summertime, it is pretty hard to find a host, but that is obvious. The affluence of tourists is much more important, a lot of local CS members are not in their hometown, a lot of them receive so many requests that they don't even have time to answer. Whatever, some mistakes when you write your request could be avoided, and this post is dedicated to tell you how!!! So, I hope it will help :)
1. Your profile is your identity: don't be lazy!
Some couch surfers sent me a request with a really fast written/empty profile. Not a lot of information, lazy sentences to respond very quickly to the website team questions ("Host me and you will know", "I am nice and easy going" or the famous "I never know what to write..."). Some didn't have pictures or one not related to the person and to conclude: no experiences and no verification. I guess some people don't understand how this community works. I had some couch surfers without references, but their profiles was very nice and interesting, and it showed a big motivation to be a couch surfer. Showing a picture is giving a little proof on your identity too. I guess posting a picture of you is important if you want to be trusted.
2. Don't send couch requests on the message box
So boring about... I receive a lot of couch requests on my message box. To be honest, it's very bothering. Some messages were in a long and messy message. It was hard to understand what was the question (meeting? couch request? tips?). Also, some of the requests in the message didn't have precise dates: "I will try to be here in august”, "I will arrive on monday or tuesday"! I am not working for couch surfing, but I can tell that the message box should not be used as a couch request. It is already very complicated sometimes to understand each other (we don't speak the same language most of the time haha), so the CS request is here to give a precise and understandable message for the surfer. Don't under estimate that and better give a precise date and cancel it that not giving a date at all!
3. Choose your couch surfer cleverly!
This is more and more popular, taking someone with a lot of references and not really looking at the profile of the person. It looks like a desperate choice, or really not caring about it. When you go to the store, you take your time to choose what you are going to buy. Please try to do the same when this is about finding a host.
I had some people asking for a couch but in a language I don't understand at all!!! I don't live in a small town, there is more than a thousand hosts in Milan, take the time to check if the language is matching too! I finally had to accept it but you could have make the effort of looking on other CS profiles. It might not be hard to find this in a big city!
Finally, please make sure you have at least a little interest in the profile, it's not a hostel you are going to meet somebody this is very important to already have a good feeling about the meeting! I don't see this mistake often, but it happens.
4. Know the good timing to send a request
For this one, I guess we could think it's obvious, but none the less, I have the same problem all the time!!! Some couch surfers send me the request one or two months before they arrive, but it's impossible for me to confirme if I will be available. The perfect time to send your request is between 10 to 3 days before your arrival. Couchsurfing once again is not a hostel or a lucrative organization, so you can't book a day in a host place that easily. It might be different between one CS to another, but we will all be bothered to respond that early to a request.
When you send it at the last minute, most of the time, I read it too late. I understand the people in an emergency case, so I am not against sending a request the day that you are arriving, but don't take the bad habit because even if I accept it, it is very hard for me to schedule that during the day! Also when you are in an emergency, try to look for emergency/sos groups of the city you are going to and post a discussion. This works pretty good.
5. Write a short and nice request
Final tip for your request. A lot of CS sent me very conventional request, not very personal. I understand that sending personal requests takes time, but you don't send the same cover letter to all the companies you apply too! Some rules are hard to change, sorry for that! As long as you must post a message with your request, please try to say something nice and personal.
Now, for those who send you the COVER LETTER, I thank you for taking SOOOO much time to be aware of my profile, but I will not have time to read all of that, so please don't make that much effort and focus on an interesting SHORT message.
for the "hey, can you host me the *****?" writers, can you just try to add one or two sentences in order to understand why you did choose me?
