About Me

** PLEASE NOTE **

I HAVE ONLY PLACE FOR 1 PERSON AT A TIME. IF YOU ARE NOT A SOLO TRAVELLER, OR IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR ACCOMMODATION FOR MORE THAN 1 PERSON, DO NOT SEND ME REQUESTS, BECAUSE I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HOST YOU.

I'm a post graduate student of philosophy. Amateur sinologist. Part time traveller. I try to learn everyday as much as I can from people around me. My interests are various and I am always ready to experience something new with curiosity.

I might seem a little bit shy at the beginning. Just give me a small time for ice-breaking (some glass of wine and/or a guitar would work faster).

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I host, I surf, I try to involve new people in this great community.

Couchsurfing is a great way to travel, even without moving! It's perfect to feel into the culture of the place you visit and to meet wonderful people who'll help you to re-discover your own place as well, while giving you a small portrait of their own place and culture.

I could not do without it!

Not every experience I had was a great experience, but all of them were positive anyway. I never had problems because of this website and instead I found here many people ready to help me when I got into troubles.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

From October 2013 to August 2014 I was living in Guangzhou, China, as a foerign student at the Guangzhou University. During my stay in China I tried to get the best from that opportunity. I made as many experiences as I could. Living there and travelling around the big China was indeed the most inspiring time in my life. Using Couchsurfing as the only source of accomodation during my travels I got to live in the most different situations: in fancy apartments, in a factory, in humble urban villages, in traditional houses in the countryside, in some sort of artistic commune, in supersmall everything-in-20square meters apartments, and so on.

I worked as a volounteer in the Hui autonomous region of Ningxia (China) for Up Development Innovators (updi.org). I had the happiest time there teaching and trying to be a friend to a pretty big amount of children and teenagers.

I tried the weirdest only-for-laowai (that means foerigners) jobs that China can offer.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to talk about any subject. I usually find 1to1 conversations more inspiring. Sometime I tend to be silent tough. I can play a bit of piano or guitar. You can ask me to sing, but at your own risk, since it would be hard to stop me afterwards. If you like we could play something togheter!

I really enjoy knowing new music, every kind of it! Suggestions about movies, books or anything else are welcome! If you like I'll give you suggestions too.

I can teach you a bit of the languages and dialects I know. I need to practice Mandarin and I would like to learn some Korean. I can cook to you Italian pasta (if in your country I can find the ingredients).

I would really enjoy hearing from you about who you are, about your like, about what you like and dislike of the place you're living in, your ideas about the places you have been too.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I can offer you my company in the evenings, a meal, a place to stay, new friends to meet.
