About Me


I won a city trip in a travel blog contest 2 years ago and I really want to visit the Baltic States or Malta. My current mission is to plan it and make it happen. If you are reading this and living in Malta, Estonia, Latvia, or Lithuania, feel free to reach out to me!


Hey! I am always looking for contact with new people. Feel free to contact me whenever you are near! I am passionate about great food, cinema, music, photograhy, and travelling. Special passion for Spain. Friends call me hedonist / bon vivant. Love to smile!


Philosophy: Hedonism

Enjoy as much as possible, every day has something beautiful in store - could be the rich taste of food, a paper postcard from a friend, or the kind smile of a perfect stranger. Many times we tend to forget it is all about those little things...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Each year I make a photography trip and try to connect to the CS community. When not travelling, I try and pay it forward.


I returned to Palermo and surfed the same couch, again!
I surfed 2 couches in Budapest
I surfed 1 couch in Palermo
I surfed 3 couches in Bologna
I surfed 1 couch in Krákow
I surfed 1 couch in Brussels
I surfed 2 couches in Porto
I have hosted 11 times in The Hague
I have had couch surfing coffee or drinks in Budapest, Istanbul, Palermo, Bologna, Krákow, Lisbon, Porto. Brussels, and The Hague.


Passionate cooking, delicious food, strange people, thrilling travels, dazzling landscapes, soothing music, intriguing cinema, photography, photography, photography, quality of life.

Did I mention photography?

PS: My guilty pleasure: boardgames!
