About Me


Juggle 5 balls


I studied computer engineer and after taking my degree I became more and more restless. I first walked all the 760 km of the Camino de Santiago in Spain, then worked for 1 year in a computer company. After that, I decided I needed some actions, so I jumped on a cargo boat and spent 1 year in Australia and 4 months in Asia. Back to Italy for 9 months, I am now in Canada.


Focus on the travel, not the destination.
A travel must be long, so it can be both bad and good.
Every crisis is a brilliant opportunity to improve yourself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I joined couchsurfing because a friend suggested it to me. It's a great idea. The best thing when you travel is to meet local people, and CS is what you need.


I started CS in Canberra, I got hosted twice. Then, in Sydney I decided to open my doors to travellers. I met and hosted a dozen of travellers in 3-4 months. It was great! Then I couchsurfed a bit in Asia: Borneo, Kuala Lumpur, Cambodia and Japan. I couchsurfed also in Europe: England, Germany and Poland. Now I am hosting people in Toronto and I couchsurfed in Quebec and Niagara Region.
