About Me

PHILOSOPHY

Favourite quotations: - To kill two birds with one stone. - All that glitters is not gold. - Nothing ventured, nothing gained. - Rome wasn't built in a day.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I heard about it a few years ago and wanted to give it a go. I like going to the CS gatherings and other activities such as the language exchange events.

My first experience was in Bristol where I was hosted for a weekend. It went everything all right so since that moment whenever I need a couch I have used the website and I have met nice and interesting people.

Interests

I like to learn about cooking, I am sure you can teach me a lovely, tasty and wonderful recipe. Gardening is my passion. I like photography, especially landscapes. I love the countryside, I am very interested in farming and rural development. I love sports as well, especially water ones, since I was a lifeguard, I like swimming and canoeing, but also squash, badminton, table -tennis and football- table, running, volleyball, bicycle. Spanish deck forever!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I lived in Malta for 1 year, a little island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, which was a fantastic experience, one of the most interesting things was working as a tour operator around the Maltese Islands (Malta, Gozo and Comino) I highly recommend to visit this island.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, I am very proud of the Spanish Empire (I may be exaggerating).

Spanish Mediterranean diet is worldwide known, for its health benefits and fresh ingredients, some food examples are: saffron rice (Paella), omelette with potatoes (Tortilla Española), cured ham (Jamón Serrano), a chilled tomato soup, light and refreshing (Gazpacho), a cold drink made from red wine, fruit juice, fizzy water (Sangria). Appetizers or snacks known as Tapas, are known all over the world. Spain is the first olive oil producing and exporting country in the world. I love extra virgin olive oil!

Spanish (Castilian) is the second most natively spoken language in the world. So learn some useful expressions: "¡Hola!" (Hello) "¿Cómo estás?"(How are you?) "Quiero una siesta" (I'll have a nap) "Vamos de fiesta!" (Let's do party) "¡Ayúdame por favor!"(Help me please!)

We have lots of sun which is linked to our outdoor lifestyle and particular way of living. It is also a country known for its unique and odd fiestas, some of the most popular are: The Pamplona Running of the Bulls. La Tomatina festival which is the world's largest tomato fight. Las Fallas whose focus is the creation and burning of "ninots" (a kind of puppets or dolls).
