MISSION: trying to let go of yet embrace everything I cannot control
PHILOSOPHY: I believe in the good things coming and strive to see a positive side to every situation
ABOUT ME: Life is a wonderful and bumpy learning journey for me, and I try to stay curious, grateful, informed, respectful and kind - tho I sometimes struggle to be kind to myself. I live a somewhat alternative lifestyle and I'm always involved in one or another community project and keen to meet others who are too.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING: Hosting, being hosted and hanging out. Sometimes, I create or attend events. Other times, I bring willing volunteers together for good causes.
COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE: Being part of the CS crowd has enriched my life beyond expectation.
Almost everything interests me.
I love people, and believe everyone can be somewhat interesting. But those with happy hearts and wide smiles are my most favorite. Rude and indifferent people make me sad, so I try to stay away.

Music, Movies, and Books
I don't make enough time to read much, but when I read I mostly read non fiction books that teach and challenge me, and sometimes some which validate my views.
I like going to the cinema and I like documentaries, always with popcorn. I don't really watch TV or series.
Love music and go to lots of random gigs, mostly of non-mainstream bands. I love how music transcends all the nonsensical barriers built by society.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Danced under the warm rain, drank from the snow in the hilltops, watched the magical effect sunshine has on all it touches, donated stem cells to a fellow human, lived in an 80-people village on top of a mountain in Italy, lived in culturally mixed houses and communities and in squats in London. I have shared eye contact with some pretty special creatures, worked in and about the Amazon rainforest, have met some amazing and inspiring people. Have felt deeply and freely. Discovered the god of the small things.
Teach, Learn, Share
May we cherish life!! Let's not take it for granted, let's take chances, let's not put things off, let's make life meaningful, be aware, raise awareness, love deeply and freely, be kind and step softly on this Earth.
I am a keen cook and baker, patient when it comes to communicating in varied languages, and passionate about various environmental and developmental issues. Know a bit about community engagement, and always keen to get involved in new projects.
Moreover, I'm always up for learning anything new.
