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.


He lived in Italy, Germany, Norway and Iceland, and recently spent quite a long 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 and Germany.


He's fluent in Italian (native), English, German, and Norwegian (albeit a bit rusty). Less fluent in Spanish, Portuguese, French, Icelandic, Danish and Swedish. Can survive a basic conversation in Faroese and Dutch. He's currently working on expanding his Slavic vocabulary and finally learn a Slavic language. The best conversation was while hitching with a Faroese shepherd, speaking a mixture of Faroese, Icelandic, Danish and English.


His plans are yet not fully clear. He left Iceland in October 2009 and is still asking himself why. After vagabonding in Denmark and Sweden, he will be travelling in Japan in early January, and then temporarily relocate to Voss, Norway for a short-term job in a hostel. After that you will probably meet him somewhere in Eastern Europe, where he will be living in an Ecovillage [1] for some time.

He's looking for hitchmates for next summer, and very probably heading to the hitching festival, wherever it is.


Primarily a linguist, he's interested in vegetarian/vegan/macrobiotic cookery, ethnology, religions, street music, primitivism, alternative and sustainable living, beer(s), organic agriculture and self-sufficiency.
