Join Couchsurfing to see Simon’s full profile.
I am a guy from the north-west of Italy.
I can't host at the moment as I don't have my own home.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I couchsurfed several times and I really enjoyed the experience with my hosts!
They were all lovely people. I also hosted at my parents's place more than a couple of times. A rewarding experience for me, my parents, and our international guests.
I'm a dreamer, low-budget traveller, I enjoy hitch-hiking and living new adventures. I travel to meet local people, to embrace their cultures, visions and lifestyle.
My way of travelling is "voluntouring": basically I help people in need. In exchange, they give me food, accommodation and, if possible, we have an exchange of knowledge too.
I used to write and report for a travelling blog:
www.viaggiareconlentezza.com (Italian only)
I am currently working on www.voluntouring.org - an announcement website where people can exchange hospitality, volunteer opportunities and alternative lifestyles proposals.

Music, Movies, and Books
I like music and I used to play in different bands. I used to play the Electric Bass and the piano. I also play Guitars and Ukulele. I like busking in the street with friends.
I have been composing hundreds of melodies and songs, though I quit (for now)

FILM - TV SHOWS
I like watching all the movies in the original language.
I used to have a weird passion for ZOMBIE movies but also anything related to humour and adventures (Indiana Jones, Star Trek, etc.)
Recent movies I enjoyed:
Contact , Captain Fantastic, Jeux d'enfants, Intouchables, Il Postino.
A good and easy book I suggest you to read is Momo by Michael Ende.
It inspired me a lot when I was a child.
Last English books I read and enjoyed:
The selfish gene - by Dawkins,
Our species - M. Harris.
Guns, Germs and Steel - J. Diamond.
Short History of Private life - Bill Bryson
Sapiens - Yuval Noah Harari
I enjoy classics, jazz, heavy metal, rock and some electronics.
Tchaikowsky, Debussy, Brahms and Strauss are my favorite classical composer.
If it comes to Opera, Puccini is my choice.
I have hundreds of favorite rock band and artists but maybe I will tell you in person.
