About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to never, ever, try to ignore what my instinct is trying to tell me

ABOUT ME

I am the most relaxed and open-minded person in a radius of several...inches. No, seriously, I was born to ride a bicycle in the breeze of the twilight, to swim with pink jellyfishes, to be impressed by violent thunderstorms, to sit on a sofa talking to smart and funny people while drinking Earl Grey. But I always bring my iphone so I can check Google if I forget the name of an actor

PHILOSOPHY

Be yourself, unless you can be Guillaume Nery

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted quite a lot of people in Milan, then not so many in Berlin (I was expecting zillions of requests but I didn't actually get many) and then my vagabonding started. I've been living in hostels for the past few months so no hosting possible.

Interests

Photography, physics, astronomy, technology, wild animals, extremely poisonous jellyfishes, spectacular clouds formations, cooking, flying, freediving (the main reason why I am in Dahab), and more to come...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I cycled 80 kms, did a tandem skydive and then cycled back home (but I took a bus half-way). I swam in the sea, in a lake and in a canal, all in january and without a wetsuit. I laid down a surf board waiting for the waves, under an apocalyptic sky: a seagull flew over my head without even flapping the wings.
I also gave water and sugar to a tired bee.

Teach, Learn, Share

Italian language, photography, Photoshop, and surely a lot of other things I can't think about now
