I was born in the far 1902(i'm joking :-P) in a little, polluted and gloomy town close to Napoli, Italy (I lived there for the first 14 years of my life)...
Then I went to Beijing (China) enjoying the Beijing's smog, that is a step beyond the smog i already experienced in Napoli, Italy.
This is the story of the last 2-3 years:
I arrived in Beijing on February 2009.
On February 2010 I arrived in Australia (on Mornington peninsula, near Melbourne) and on march 21st 2010 I left for a road trip from Melbourne(Australia) to Perth(Australia).
On may 31st 2010 i arrived again in China.
On May 31st 2011 is again 1 year that I don't come back to the country where I was born (Italy).

On September 8th 2011 I left for a trip from Beijing (China) to Naples (Italy) overland (bus, train, hitchhiking, foot, boat, etc.). my stops have been: Pakistan-->Iran-->Iraq -->Turkey-->Bulgaria-->Macedonia-->Albania--->Montenegro--->Bosnia-->Croazia-->Slovenia ….ITALY"
On January 8th 2012 finally I arrived in Italy from this looong trip.
On April 14th 2012 I arrived in China again.

Nella morte non c'è niente di triste, non più di quanto ce ne sia nello sbocciare di un fiore. La cosa terribile non è la morte, ma le vite che la gente vive o non vive fino alla morte. Non fanno onore alla propria vita, la pisciano via. La cagano fuori. Muti idioti. Troppo presi a scopare, soldi, famiglia, scopare. Hanno la testa piena di ovatta. Mandano giù Dio senza pensare, mandano giù la patria senza pensare. Dopo un po' dimenticano anche come si fa a pensare, lasciano che siano gli altri a pensare per loro. Hanno il cervello imbottito di ovatta. Sono brutti, parlano male, camminano male. Gli suoni la grande musica dei secoli ma loro non sentono. Per molti la morte è una formalità. C'è rimasto ben poco che possa morire.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

House Rules:

When you make a couch request to me remember the following rules:
1.please RESPECT any of these very simple 14 rules. Otherwise I'll be very disappointed :(

2. I don't smoke, but if you want to smoke inside the apartment, do it in the KITCHEN. Or you can also smoke inside my bedroom if I'm not going to sleep soon. :)

3. I host for no more than 7 days , but sometime maybe even 10 or 14 days; just DEPENDS on how we get along...no more than 14 days in any case.

4. if you wanna use the WASHING MACHINE (and my clothes soap), please ask me first so maybe I can put some of my clothes in the washing machine too.

5.in about five years and half on hospitality websites and about 280 people hosted I learned that:
I will NOT host COUPLES.
So if you are a couple, don't ask me for a couch

6.Mind my cat. you will be sleeping in the same room where the cat(called MaoZhuXi­ 猫主席) will be during the night.

7. Don't be in the bathroom between 12.30(noun: thirty) and 2:30pm in the afternoon (I have to get ready for going to work and I need the bathroom). REALLY!!!

8. If you use the kitchen (for cooking, for eating, for heating the food or anything else) after use please leave the kitchen 5% more clean than it was before using. :-)

9.You are welcome to bring any guest to my house BUT you will be responsible for them (for example if my laptop/phone/cat gets stolen, you have to pay for them.). Anyway, you are welcome to bring any guest, BUT ONLY DURING THE DAY/EVENING...NOT for spending the NIGHT at my place! If I find anyone spending the night at my place, without my permission, my brioche will be very angry.

10.If you stay at my place you have to COME BACK TO SLEEP AT MY PLACE **EVERY** NIGHT THAT YOU STAY AT MY PLACE. It's just very rude to just leave your baggage at my place and then pass 1 or 2 nights (or more) somewhere else.

11.When using the toilet, put the toilet paper IN THE BIN, not in the toilet! Otherwise the toilet will be blocked. If it's blocked, you have to unblock it.

12.When you go out, ALWAYS lock the house door with the key that I'll give you.

13.If you want to use the electric heater (for warming the room) when I'm not at home(for example when I'm at work),PLEASE give me 10 yuan per day IN ADVANCE. For example, if you stay at my place for 5 days, please give me 50 yuan the first day you come. Or you can chose to NOT use the electric heater and not pay anything.
BELIEVE ME IT REALLY CONSUMES ***A LOT***!!

14. Don't open the door of my room or go to my room or stay in my room when I'm sleeping!!!!!

15.I don't care if you send a copy-paste request (I understand that when you are traveling is very time consuming to write a personalized request) ....so relax and ask me for a couch mate! :)
But before coming to my place you have to read my rules anyway ;)
