About Me


looking for the perfect Tacos


I've been living in Italy fr most of my life, when I decided that few weeks holidays every now and then were not anymore enough, since then, I've been experiencing longer and longer period of travel with some breaks where I stop to work before the next journey~!

Is during one of this journey that I've met three years ago my soulmate, the perfect travelmate of this neverending journey called life, this last summer we decided to get married in Italy.

Now since the world crisis badly hit my home country, Italy could be consider not the best location where to start a new life for our new life, but nevertheless we decided to stop here for the time being, and hardly work on ourself, study and buid up our relationship in the strongest way, so to being able to prosper everywhere in the world.

Because as much as I feel myself Italian, the travel bug will always burn fiercely in my soul, and I will never stop to think of myself as a world citizen~!

We've recently update both our profile here on CS in order to seek couch for the two of us, rather then just for one person, since we are going to travel as much as possible while living here in Old Europe, couchsurfing will be by far our first choice~!

Said so I hope to meet soon some great people sitting down at first as strangers and leave as friends~!

Photography is a big passion and I guess is time for me to embrace a project in that as well, in order to challenge myself and get better~!


"Once you figure out what you want to do with your life, you realise how little time you have to accomplish your dreams..."

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
by Mark Twain

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Spread the word to as many people I can, and using the website as 1st choice wherever I travel~!


I'm amazed how coushsurfing is still growing but able at the same time to keep it's friendly feeling... Every time i surf, host, or just randomly meet surfers, they are most likely good people~!

While in Montreal I've hosted as much as I could, meeting some great people and became quite active in the Montreal community through which I made good friends... basically all the my friends are active members :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Everyday's special I guess, at the same time I don't get hyper or even too exited very easily, the good side's that I'm not easy to upset either : )

Teach, Learn, Share

I love storied and all about them, it doesn't matter the media used to tell them, could it be a baloon a movie, graffiti or a song as long as the story give me back feeling i dig in it completely and I get lost very easy~!

So to me travelling is an easy way to share my expierence and always made a new one...

Or even better, traveling it's not just where you go or the places you see, but more important than that I believe are our travelmates, as much as all the strangers that every day are crossing our paths, the people are the living protagonist of our experience, and leading actors of our memories.
Traveling we put ourself in a constant confrontation with other people in a wide range of different situations, and I do strongly believe that from this daily enrichment we came to know better ourself, wich is priceless.
