About Me

I live with my wife Ekaterina and the newborn Leonardo(nov.2021), already a traveller, but very sly so be careful about him!....We are extremely busy, therefore not sure if we can accept travellers and sparing time with..at night you can expect to be waken up by his crying.....but we wil try to help someone.....
Leo sleeps in his bedroom and Katya uses that in the daytime and myself the living one, cause working from home..

Ideal guests:
-staying max 2 nights, but one is preferred
-cooking dishes of their country
-sharing their world vision
- naming the password

That being said, feel free to ask, we are travellers addicted, just returned from east tour HK/SouthKorea (Apr 2024)!

About my values: I am really interested on economics and politics. I threw my own hat into the ring for running as mayor of Genoa City council and as Europen Parliament member in 2019. I am active member of Five Stars Movement and I am so proud we introduced the "universal basic income" in 2018, Italy.

As human being I aim to be as resilient as the #DELTAONEFIVE US Marines (password to mention), deployed in Hué City Feb 1968, Vietnam. Its story, based on everyone and everything teaming up against it is my personal beacon.

As father I plan to have a less consumeristic lifestyle and teaching to Leo a more sustainable way of living, on that Katya is helping me so much.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Teach, Learn, Share

my trips have taught me a lot: better travelling rather than Googling!

Change is automatic, progress is not!
