Turin – where the adventures begin

Turin is best known as the former capital of united Italy and also the birthplace of its first King Vittorio Emanuel II. But one can learn that by staying at home and reading guidebooks. We all travel to learn something new. For this reason I decided to go slow to get the essence of each place I visit, and try to stay, or at least meet up and talk with locals as much as I can. Couch-surfing is one of the best ways of doing so.
