About Me


Gaia needs gardeners


Iḿ a creative, open-minded person, with lots of passion for the earth, always an explorer, love to enjoy the little things, love to meet people, try to feel other cultures, try to make the world better, sometimes too radical and too emotional...the facts: I left europe for good and started a new life in Australia !


trying to reduce the ecological footprint on earth, contemplating about yesterday, today and tomorrow and step back from this ego-minded world of ipods, cars and party party is more than that!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Life is giving and taking, bridges needs to build in a more and more asocial world to come back to our roots and to give us strength through social interactions, to broaden the mind and to learn


many couches, mattresses, sleeping bags, tents, cars, mobile all colors and different states of mind....the best are the ones which lead to an intimate relationship(platonic) even over several years and kilometers


too many and thatś giving me a hard time....plants, permaculture, music (percussion, ukulele, cello), wild dancing and not care about others watching, i like unsealed ground, making little things out of recycled material, good books with hot chocolate, making jam, red wine with smelly cheese and a good talk, tropical fruits, bush walking.....

Music, Movies, and Books

I do not want to slam other people with i will skip this part....just a statement: I did not have a TV for many years, I enjoy rather the smell and feel of books(if thatś enough to say right now)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done


Teach, Learn, Share

first, iḿ a good learner and I would like to learn more about the rainforest(especially edible fruits) and to learn from the traditional owners of this country, some bushskills would be handy too...
maybe someone who could help us rebuilding the car that it drives on veggie oil???
but i can also teach the tarot, how to make jewellery out of recycled paper, how to change an oil filter, how to know when a jackfruit is ready to pick, how to make a fire, how to catch a fish, how to make lasagne, how to make a garden bed.......
