About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel the Whole World

ABOUT ME

I work as a language teacher during the week (I am quite free during the weekends). I am also an amateur photographer.
I am a vegetarian, 50% Buddhist + 50% Wiccan, easy-flowing person, always trying to keep calm and happy.
I think I can be funny and I am for sure very talkative.
I love travelling and meeting new friends.

PHILOSOPHY

I'm half Buddisht and half Wiccan. My two golden rules are: "Enjoy life as much as you can without hurting anybody" and "All you do for/to the others will be back to you three times". Karma-power forever!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We may have a place for you at home, on a folding bed in my bedroom.
I can show you around Bilbao too. Some of my friends think I'm better than Lonely Planet!

I have also surfed other people's couches, which was an awesome experience.
