About Me


Turn every experience into vitues


Here they ask me "ALL ABOUT YOU!!" WTF :)

Friends told I'm Anything but shy, although I think to be shy, crazy even though I don't get why... :> They say I do always new things and I'm not scared about it, would you say brave?? I guess... sometimes impulsive... I think to be to much rational, what ever don't know who is right o who is wrong! I'm friendly although I don't like peolpe "head up to the ass"......

Is not easy at all to speak about " all about you", I wish a friend of mine would fill this part, that would make more sense!! :D wuold you?? I mean, I don't have any issues to speak about me, let me just make this clear, I do like a lot to speak about myself, as I like to hear about you, but I'm more use to do that face to face rather than write down here about Marco!

What I can say here is a bit about my life.....

I was born in Sicily, Palermo, and I grew up there till 19 years old. I thanks God for it or to whom it may concern! Sicily is probably one of the most beautifull place in the world even though a lot of issues are still going on over there..... you might know what I'm speaking about.... :(

I have been travelling around since when I was pretty young and I got "travel addicted" along my way .

I left Palermo forward Torino at 19 years old where I graduated in Business & Management...

I'm currently travelling around the world from EASt to West and soon I'll move to Lausanne


Is always time to learn!! I'm always seeking emotions, no emotion no life!! Better if strong emotions are on my way!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I partecipate sharing time, friendship, hospitality, that bit of knowledge I may have, with my ideas, whatelse??? ;>.....BOOO (BOOO means I don't know yet)


oooo This is the best part, when the first time I wrote about my person on CS profile, I couldn' t fill this part, I'm just glad I can turn back and finally write about my Couch Surfing experiences... I wish I could write down all about my experiences and CSer that I met along the way..... Summing up during my CS experience:

I was getting married with a beautifull lady in LV :)

I had spent an amazing NEW-EVE with several mates from CS eating Italian Food, drinking France wine and skiign the day after on the Alps.

After a friendly coffee I suddenly found myself running very fast next a Couchsurfer trying to catch up a train was almost gone (that has been really fun since we was keeping going with our conversation also while we were running):D. It happen the same thing trying to catch a flight but al least this time we had a car!!

To Organize a party in my place or somewherelse with really significant and friendly people

Traveling around Australia with a campervan....All of thouse experiences and other are significally part of my life since I still think and remember about, although most the single chat with other CS traveler are generally about learning and teaching about culture, attitude, language, and more, don't know why, all the convesations are surrounded by special place, a beer and a lot of fun!

Other experiences are not mentioned but I can genuinely say that I have enjoyed all off those!


I love travel, I like sport at all, swiming, kayaking canoe polo, waterpolo, whitewater, kayak, surf, Apnea, snowboard. I definetly love pets, especially those mine ;)and I miss them because I cannot share my flate with them anymore!
Is now photogrphy my first interest and I'm learning a lot, even though I'm doing that just by myself, I wish I could study more about or meet someone can teach me some tips...! I like studing about culture although I study travelling an chatting rather then from the book! I also like to speak different languages and be able to speak with almost the rest off the world, speaking english make me feel close to every single part of the world. I'm not raelly expert about art but I love it, especially photography, the world is so beautiful, you just need to catch the right moment, in the right place, with the right angle, the right light and........ voillà!! les jeux sont fait!! :>

Then just walk trhough historical neighborood fill my mind, it doesn't matter if the neighborrod is Manatthan or Rome, modern or ancient.... what it counts is why people did that, what happened, what's going on or what will happen.... for the rest..... let's speak about the rest sharing a coffee/drink/meal/walking/partying......

Music, Movies, and Books

My best book is defitealy "1984, Jorge Orwell" I don't enjoy every kind of book and I enjoy just certain kind of topics, social topics, other people thoughs written down on paper..

It's quite hard to find out which is my best film. Each film blow up different emetions first of all we should recognise which type of movies we are speaking about...

film I would like to suggest not in order of importance:

- Fight Club
- Big fish
- Spy Game
- Pulp fiction (not needed to be mentioned but just to be sure...)
- The Snatch
- Gran Torino
- Sweet November
- Matrix (1)

well other for sure ask me , I'll let you know ;)

About Music, I always link music with moment and emotion again, that count to me a lot!

This is the reason why I enjoy different kind of music from different nationality! there are some kind of music that I definitelly dislike (most of Italian music ahah :D)

Pearl Jam, Beatles... However I think then each traveler should enjoy this song:

I'm yours "Jason Mraz"

enjoy..... ;)
