About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to discover what the World has to show to us

ABOUT ME

Describing myself seems a difficult task, it should be up to the other people to describe me, but I can try:I love to Know, I love travelling, I love the life and all its challenges, I'm quite rational, but sometimes my irrational-spiritual side comes out.
I think a good description of me are my interests so look at them!
I'm proud to be Italian, but often I'd like to go abroad...

PHILOSOPHY

"Learn, don't hate" - words of wisdom by an old Italian partisan.
a little bit of Schopenauer, Nietzsche, and other philosophers, that's my personal philosophy: multiple point of view about the world!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm currently Country Ambassador, Geo-fixer for Italy, Event Message Approval Team member, contributor for the Couchsurfing Wiki and glad helping to build a local organisational structure for Couchsurfing.
I'd like to see more inputs and tools to let people operate effectively.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Before I joined CS, I've been two times in Germany in the house of a friend of mine, and I slept on a couch with a beautiful view on the Rhine river.

Some Statistics (I love stats and it's just not only numbers!):

I'm involved in CS primarily as a host. Of the thousands requests I received and answered, 266 led to an effective hosting experience. They came through various Hospitality Exchange websites: 63% of them are from CS members! I am also a member of Hospitality Club, BeWelcome and GlobalFreeLoaders.com and they account for the 21% of the remaining requests. 14% of the requests were made by members belonging to more than one network.

My guests

As of August 30th, 2009, I have hosted 429 guests (422 hosted once + 7 more than once) from 49 different countries!!!

Guests nationality stats (as of August 2009)
