About Me


On a quest to find real happiness, because a man should not think, act and live, for anything less.


As I once told my friends: "I am looking for something, I don't know what it is, I don't know where it is, I don't even know if it exists, but I absolutely need it"(*)

I have a thirst for knowledge and experience that looks like it cannot be satisfied. I'm curious, passionate, and somehow unable to follow straight paths.

That's why i'm on couchsurfing. Travelling, and meeting people is one of the best way to find knowledge, to share point of views, to get new ideas.

(*)UPDATE 2010: now I know that it exists, and have an idea how to look for it ;-)
UPDATE 2011: now i'm actively looking for it ;-)
UPDATE 2012: still on the track. The road is long.


Learn as much as I can of me and the world. Collect in this knowledge the hints that will lead me to happiness. Simple enough, really. I'll be happy to share this philosophy with you

And one of my favorite citation: “My country is the world, and my religion is to do good.” (Thomas Paine)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm not a hardcore host: i host every once in a while, and only people i think i have something in common. While travelling, i enjoying going at meeting, or ask for coffee and drink


I've hosted and been hosted few times, but it was a overall very good experience!


Oh, well... music, nature, animals, telling stories, making and drinking cocktails (check my references!), every kind of sport that you can do alone and outside, hiking, diving, dancing tango, reading, writing, whistling while driving, dreaming a lot, ask me questions I don't have answers for, meeting people and have party, playing wind instruments, painting and something else i forgot.

Well, travelling, of course :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't watch TV a lot (actually, none at all) but I enjoy good movies sometimes. Not a specific genre in particular, just enjoyable movies :)

On the other side, I listen to music 24hrs a day, and in my playlist I need to have almost every musical genre represented, to better follow my moods

I'm more specific about reading, instead, preferring fantasy or science fiction books.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Left my job, start travelling alone for 6 months, in a trip around the world, and while i was there: a illuminating meditation retreat in Thailand. The Ujuni Salt Desert reflecting the sky. Jumping from a cliff (i used to have vertigo). Living. Going back and changed life. Start travelling again as a nomad worker.

Teach, Learn, Share

Every person has something to teach, and I wish to learn everything, from how to fish a salmon with bare hands, to how to lead an Indonesian canoe.

While I'm waiting for my Indonesian rowing lessons, though, I will gladly learn some words on different languages. I can teach Italian or some Spanish in exchange, since I don't think you'll be very interested in computer lessons ;)
