Diego, alias Gutuater comes from a tiny village in Northern Italy, which he left in 2006 at the age of 20, and has not stopped travelling since. Until October 2009, he was living in Reykjavík, Iceland, but is currently leading a purely nomadic life, somewhere in Scandinavia.

Experience

He lived in Italy, Germany, Norway and Iceland, and recently spent quite some time in Denmark too, and in his yet short hitching career has thumbed through Iceland, Faroe Islands, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. His best-thumbed countries are Iceland, Denmark and Germany. Recently, he spent 3 weeks in Japan, where he went from Nagasaki to Tokyo hitching rides for 1300km and soaking in hot springs along the way. The longest ride was overnight on a truck to Tokyo (500km).

Languages

He's fluent in Italian (native), English, German, and Norwegian. Less fluent in Spanish, Portuguese, French, Icelandic, Danish and Swedish. Can survive a basic conversation in Faroese and Dutch. He's desperately waiting for the right moment to learn a Slavic language. The best conversation was while hitching with a Faroese shepherd, speaking a mixture of Faroese, Icelandic, Danish and English.

Plans

After leaving Iceland and vagabonding in Denmark and Sweden, and a 3-weeks parenthesis in Japan, he temporarily relocated to Voss, Norway for a short-term job in a hostel. In April 2010 he's hitching again on the ferry to Iceland, coming back in May and hitch around Eastern and Western Europe until August. Since it may become hard to keep this page updated, you'd better check this [[1]].
