About Me


Leave the gun, take the cannoli


I've been travelled and lived abroad for a few years and I try to travel as much as I can, since I think it's the only way to really understand the world. Presently I live in The Netherlands.


Leave the gun, take the cannoli.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meetings, events, camps. I have been hosted and I have hosted a few times.


It's difficult to explain what CS is to people who don't know it. It's difficult to make them understand that it's not just finding a free accommodation. You have to try it. You have to be there, to meet the people, to enjoy different places and culture, and you will understand what it really means.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Amazing things I have seen: African children always smiling. Northern lights in Lapland sky. Petra. Sunrise in Sahara desert. Cappella Sistina. Damascus. Buddhist monks praying in Malaysian temples. Carnival in Rio. Kamasutra temples in India. Dancing elves in Finnish forests under midnight sun. Palmira. Goa. Hippies dancing to the sun on a nudist beach in front of the ruins of a greek temple. Burning corpses in Kathmandu. Dismaland. Hanami in Tokyo. Whales in Iceland.

Amazing things I have done: walking on the frozen sea. Eating a sandwich in Sandwich. Dancing in the middle of Stonehenge's stones during Summer Solstice. Climbing 1200 steps to reach a lost town built by a crazy king in the clouds. Hiking glaciers in Iceland. Spotting lions and giraffes in Kenya. Talking with a shaman on the ruins of an Inca temple in Cuzco. Crossing borders in am occupied city.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to cook a proper pasta and to use proper hand-gesture in Italian style.

I believe that life is a continuous learning process. Through interaction we keep on learning new things and expanding our minds. Dialogue is the best way to share new information and to learn new skills.
