About Me

Hi everyone! I'm a physiotherapist and I live in Pisa, in the heart of Tuscany.
I live in a small, cozy two-room apartment in the historical centre of the town, with my friend Cristina (she's a physiotherapist too), the flat is very small and we haven't space enough to host other people, that's the reason why I can't host untill I go in a bigger apartment! I'm really sorry for that.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meeting people it's fantastic and hosting strangers in one's own house it's one of the most generous action a person can do, which shows a really open mind.
In addition I think Couchsurfing it's a brilliant way to visit a country without being, feeling, acting like a tourist, but catching all the beauty of the places in the same way the locals used to do.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I felt the wish to go beyond my limits I started to travel in a different way from what I used to do in the past. Then I found out that a simple journey could become a surprising, marvelous, fantastic world where you can appreciate more deeply persons, places, foods, cultures...everything.
