About Me

"Italian-Hispanic-World Citizen-Ninja Mix" who lived in Italy, Holland, Spain, Canada, Usa, Peru, Brazil and Portugal.
I traveled a lot ( but there's still so much to discover!) so if there is a tribe of "world citizens" that's mine!. Yeah right, with my goals,dreams etc.. but over all these things I walk around looking to connect with people. To share, to receive and to try to be happy keeping my life clean of bad vibrations and extreme or radical sides. For me "No Balance, No party".
My humor? (according to my friends) a bit dark sometimes.
I love any kind of art expression (including the human been!).
Worked in Broadcasting and IT consultancy but I also love photography and writing (as somebody said, " to kill my own demons" ) plus, if you play Beach Volley or Tennis, here you have a friend :-)
and im always up x a ride or for a run.
Finally ...I cook, yes sir!, so if you are lucky and I feel inspired you will taste one my eclectic delicatessen :-)



"The true madness may not be other thing than wisdom itself, that tired of discovering the shame of the world, has taken the wise decision of going crazy."
Heinrich Heine.
"La verdadera locura quizá no sea otra cosa que la sabiduría misma que, cansada de descubrir las vergüenzas del mundo, ha tomado la inteligente resolución de volverse loca"
Heinrich Heine.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCH SURFING has changed a lot and sadly my approach to the once "non profit project" has changed. I crossed many people's lives, have got great experiences, made some friends and discovered the world in a different way so I'm really thankful to this project.
That said I still believe in the platform but I'll definitively check if you have "hosted" before and if you have good references, if not, at least you should have participated helping travelers in different ways and your profile must be filled properly.
Sooo don't be lazy and make an effort to tell me... why should I host you :-)
To spread the concept that CS is not a "free accommodation" resource."Exchange" babies,that's the word!.


My First experience was back in September of 2008 in Estonia (Tallinn) After that there has been so many good experiences in different countries hosting and been hosted, so for me CS has been (and I hope it will continue to be) a GREAT experience!

Teach, Learn, Share

I traveled a lot and lived in different places,and yes, you learn a lot and probably I can SHARE some experiences. As long as we consider SHARING a gift we could learn from every single person we face ... we need to keep trusting in the human being.
