About Me

I've been member of CS since 2013 and I have already 60+ recomendations.
But for some reason, my old profile stoped appearing in the search results for Santiago, Chile, so I decided to create this new profile to be able to host again.

My "real" profile is https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/alonshats if you want to visit it (is the same information, but you can check my reviews)

Current (and life-long) mission:
Happiness!

A little about me:
Easy going, friendly and open-minded. Traveller & entrepreneur (hopefully I'll be able to mix this two together).
I love to travel (my longest trip so far: 20 months around the world) and I enjoy meeting new people & cultures (wherever I go it’s a must to try typical food and drinks).
I specially enjoy nature, hiking & trekking.
I Love animals (dogs are human’s best friends but cats are cool too :)).
A perfect night: Hanging out with good friends+cold drink + live music.

Life lesson and philosophy:
Travel, explore and enjoy life as much as possible. Be happy in whatever form it means for you... Live your life by design, not by default!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I joined CS looking for a new and cool way to travel around, meeting locals and have some "home away from home" feeling.... And I found much more!
I stayed on the floor, in the backyard (tent), couches and very nice beds. In each part my hosts made my trip special and memorable.

And now, it's time to give back! I don't know when I'll go traveling again, so for now I plan to be the best host I can be :) I miss meeting new people and having travelers around me :)
