About Me


My name is Nick and what makes me the happiest person is to travel and meet new people.

I'm a big fan of any kind of music, I am always trying to know what is the new artist I must listen. I love music festivals and live concerts. I don't want to know how much I've spent on live shows and festivals haha.

Having conversation in a bar/pub with 1-2-3-150 drinks is perfect.
I love to party too.

Let's meet!

Feel free to send me a message.

I am currently in Australia! I recently arrived June 2nd in Brisbane with my girlfriend. We are planning to stay 6 months and then travel around Australia. I will be travelling to Asia afterward and then try to meetup with friends in Europe.
