About Me


right here, rigth now


I'm always at the mercy of my moods, don't think much before doing something, often don't think at all. constantly changing my mind, trying to find some balance and to untie the big knots in my head..
easily amused. and recently easily moved too. love strong feelings.
I like to laugh, blowing soap bubbles, being with friends and go alone for a walk, me and my music. actually, I can't imagine my life without music.
sometime talkative sometime silent, always listening.
disorganised but passionate cooker (love it!).
someone told me I look like a cartoon.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


hosting and being hosted. sharing and enjoying.
willing to support it, spread it, share it.

I highly value CouchSurfing and the relationships it brought to me.
I feel this is not facebook, not myspace, not a place where to make up virtual links.
Please forgive me if I won't add you as a cs friend, but I love to build up connections and to share more than a quick chat at a party. Way more!
If it's written that we are friends but then we don't know enough each other to decide whether to trust or not, what kind of friendship is it?
