About Fortunato

It's difficult to describe yourself but I will try.

I'm very easy-going and open-minded individual.
I think to be a very strong-willing and tenacious person but,
sometimes, I can be very lazy and laid-back.
I'm not social network guy. I'm not on facebook or twitter.
Only a short time ago (August 2016) I had a simple mobile
phone for calling and receiving only :)
But now (after much pressure from my family and my friends) I have a smartphone to use mainly whatsapp.
However I don't like holding anytime the mobile in my hand.

I'm interested in Zen Buddhism and Taoism that I try to apply to
everyday life ( but that does not always happen :P).
I like animals and I enjoy being out in nature. I have two dogs and three cats.
I did voluntary activity in a kennel in my hometown.

I like eating, especially Italian, Greek and Japanese food.

I don't like going to the disco or clubbing.
For me the perfect evening is going to the cinema and eating out with my dearest friends.

Favourite cities in Europe among those I visited: London, Lisbon, Athens, Stockholm.
Countries in Europe that I want to visite in the future: Denmark, Norway, Finland, Spain, Croatia, Hungary, Cyprus.
Countries (outside Europe) that I want to visit in the future: South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Japan, Southeast Asia.
Weird goal: I would like to live for a period in Perth (Australia), the most isolated city in the world. I have never been there but I've always been fascinated by this city surrounded by Ocean and Desert.
Am I crazy? Answer : Yes, I am!
