Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Since I know CS, everytime I'm getting more into... my first CS experience was in Brussels, and after that I've met people in Barcelona to show them the city, I've found a place to live by CS (the best place in Helsinki!), traveled in Estonia, Germany, Denmark, Japan, Portugal and Morroco, hosted people in Barcelona and Girona... I've met a lot of good people in meetings, nice friendships have started with CS... yes, I think that without CS my life would be very different, I'm happy to have discovered it!

Interests

I'm interested in a lot of things... Cultures and other ways of living, nature, cooking, Yoga, learning, handmade crafts, languages, music, campervans, books, food, hicking, Stand Up Paddle, surfing, climbing, running, couchsurfing, alternative ways of living, living in respect with the nature, fun... and travelling of course!

Music, Movies & Books

I love reading and listening to music... These are ones of my favourite books and authors (if you want you can recomend me other ones!)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Getting stocked in the ice in Baltic sea for 10hours... Aurora Borealis... Lapland... Guinea Ecuatorial (too many crazy things in that trip)... getting lost in the mountain at winter and find an empty house full of food and mattreses... Hitchhiking from Helsinki to my hometown in Spain... keeping an amazing wooden house in front of the beach in Costa Rica... travelling gives me always a lot of amazing things, it's impossible to write them all.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd like to learn cooking new dishes... and to learn new things every day, I'm sure we can learn something from everyone.

If you want I can teach you how to make thread bracelets, some recipes, how to do SUP, some yoga... and more things, sure!
