About Me

Sydney Rome is actually my old DJ name, and although I retired a few years ago, online I'm mainly known as Sydney or Syd. I divide my time between Spoleto (Umbria, central Italy) and A Coruña (Galicia, northwest of Spain), whenever I'm not travelling of course.

If you're passing through Umbria or Galicia, feel free to contact me for travel advice + local tips, and if your timing is really good, perhaps even a couch to surf.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to swap stories and travel advice with other travellers + organise CS events in Italy, Spain and all over the world.

Music, Movies, and Books

A big YES to all three, but let's not forget about Video Games, which are also an integral part of our mainstream culture.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I managed to survive the 80's and 90's, which most would agree, were the definitive decades for Clubbing, Dance Parties and Raves. Alas quite a few of my friends didn't.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm always up for learning more languages, recipes and life hacks. I'm guessing I can probably teach you a few things as well.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Plenty of travel tales and the benefit of my extensive CouchSurfing experience.
