About Me


Get to know cultures and food completely different from what i'm used to


I find it really difficult to describe myself but i would give it a try.
I think I'm quite shy at first, but once I get to know you, I can talk for hours about everything at all. I am very quiet but I also love to party. The best plan for a night would be a good bar, good company, and good beer.
Since I'm a child I've been to contemporary dancing classes, and I believe that gave me the opportunity to see things from a different perspective; in my opinion I'm very open minded, and working with my body gave me a special conection with my inner self.
For the past few years I've been studying culinary arts, and food it's something I'm very passionate about. I would love to travel around the world just to eat in different places and get to know the food culture in every country.


I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE music, really, I can't spend a day of my life without it. I also like to read a lot, I enjoy a cup of good tea and good coffee; as i already said, I love cooking, and I love eating too :D I love seeing bands live, it doesnt matter if it's in a basement or in a big stadium.
I love animals, i myself have 2 cats and they are the best
