Hi everyone! Ok, let´s try.

Interested in everything about agricultural and enviromental issues.
Also I´m a bit careless sometimes.

PHILOSOPHY

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I mainly participate hosting and surfing couches, also helping out in the organization of CS event. Tarifa CS Beach Event is an annual meeting that´ll celebrate its 8th edition this coming june. Also I´ve attended gatherings in almost every country I´ve visited.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
I discovered CS a few years ago. The thing is that I´ve surfed some couchs in some coutries, and have hosted some many other people.

Ok I started it by hosting people. And then the first surfing experience was in Scandinavia. Just awesome. Nice people who suddently pick me up from stations, offered me their home, their food, their friends.
