About Me

🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦
My thoughts go to OUR BROTHERS IN UKRAINE.
I have been in Ukraine for months.
They are the sweetest, kindest, and most peaceful people I have ever met.
But they are also really resilient.

I have been near Crimea in 2016 and I have seen with my eyes RUSSIAN WAR HELICOPTERS INTIMIDATE Ukrainian civilians.

WE NEED TO COME TOGETHER TO STOP RUSSIAN ARMY. WITH ANY MEANS.

CURRENT MISSION: Cycle from Finland to Argentina, play theater, and more of all: to have fun!

ABOUT ME
I lived in Belgium for a long time, now I mostly live in Finland (in the summer). I was made in Italy, I grew up around Europe, and I will die as a World citizen.
At the moment I am cycling from Finland to Argentina.
When I travel, I am pretty essentialist and minimalist; the less I own, the more I am free & enjoy what really matters.

SMOKE, DRUGS, & DRINKS
I don't smoke; I may smoke just if my clothes are on fire: I am allergic to any smell of smoke.

A drug I use, maybe once every three months, is coffee, but I am trying to quit.

I drink a lot: my favorite drink is water from a spring.
I usually don't drink much alcohol; I may drink a glass of good wine with some food.
However, I love to be social and go dancing (rock n' roll).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

MY PAST IN COUCHSURFING
Since CS is a "FOR profit" organization, I am less keen to help the "company."
In the past, for CS, I have:
made all kinds of meetings;
accepted the most CS requests,
helped the CS community in many ways: donating money, helping other members, trying to bring friendly people in the community);
suggested everyone to be verified!;
greeted loads of new/traveling nearby members;
promoted CS censorship-free;
organized regular meetings about Theater;
hosted regular Pyjama Parties Meetings;
started weekly sport meetings;

Interests

CYCLING
Bicycles are, for me, a religion. I don't use cars since decades.
I like to use bicycles for any purpose, also to transport dishwashers!

I also work with bicycles, arranging bike events.
I volunteer, too, organizing Cyclonudista (The World Naked Bike Ride).

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES - HOMELESSNESS
Since I am a traveler, as many of you, I have felt what it means not to have a roof on your head.
I think that nobody should be left sleeping in the streets.
That's why I try to do my small part about this issue.

ENVIRONMENT
I have been in many environmentalist groups, mostly doing FoodSharing and People's Kitchen.
https://cyclorbit.blog/category/environmentalism/

I like Nature, I like "Balance," respect for Animals.
I share vegan ideology, but I make exceptions sometimes.

I can be the most uncomplicated person on the globe. But, just in certain situations, I can become highly complex; I just try to adapt myself to the circumstances I am in.

THEATER
My main passion is Theater; I love to play and watch Theater shows. I am also making experimental philosophic short movies.

TANTRA
I have practiced tantra for a few years. Along with cycling, it became my main religion.

PHILOSOPHY
I don't always listen to advice because to make mistakes, I am also excellent by myself.

If you are depressed, you are living in the past.
If you are anxious, you are living in the future.
If you are at peace, you are living in the present.
€
If you don't know how to smile, you are not a serious person.

HOSPITALITY EXCHANGE EXPERIENCE
The first time I couch surfed was in Bielefeld (Germany). Then in Berlin and again in Cologne.
Since then, I have had hundreds of exchanges.
I had super nice, quite lovely, friendly, almost nice, almost not nice, and not nice at all CS experiences.
