About Me

YOU SHOULD KNOW

My profile is long; when I travel I like knowing where Im getting into. No need to read it all but, for the hasty, please, at least read the HOME section

Me perfil es largo; a mí cuando viajo me gusta saber dónde me meto. No tienes por qué leerlo todo pero por lo menos la sección de CASA sí me gustaría que la leyeses.

ABOUT ME

Wanderer and wonderer; fernweh and smultronställets, mamihlapinatapai and tarab, waldeinsamkeit and bizigarri, hyggelig and weird words (:

Viajero incurable; me gusta fernweh y smultronställets, mamihlapinatapai y tarab, waldeinsamkeit y bizigarri, hyggelig y las palabras raras (:

CURRENT MISSION

I wish i knew... something like trying to build a comfort zone outside of the comfort zone.

Yo qué sé... algo parecido a "construir una zona de comfort fuera de las zonas de comfort"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

As a host my experience is limited: I seldom stop at home. A few times, though, good weird experience. As a guest it´s been... heterogenic, somehow challenging, but always stimulant and often mindblowing. Couchsurfing is becoming something more than a just-for-travelers community and I enjoy living that change.

Paro poco por mi casa asi que no he alojado tanto como querría. El par de veces que pude fueron buenas y estrambóticas experiencias. Como huesped la evaluación es... -ejem- heterogénea, in-te-re-san-te con asteriscos, pero siempre etimulante y en ocasiones MUY interesante.

Interests

Very eclectic: i can read for a week and then play basket every day for another, travel for months or stay at home with movies and a blanket...

Eclectico y mucho: puedo leer una semana seguida, o pisar la cancha de basket la siguiente, o viajar durante meses o pasarmelos en casa con una mantita y un millón de pelis...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've hitchhiked for 50000km in Southamerica (thats more than the earth's circumference!) and what's more, i haven't turned crazy after it.
Well, some of my best travel experiences were surfing with my body, waking up in my hamaca in the jungle with friendly monkeys all over me, treking in the Himalay, visiting a mayan arcane city under a tornado, scubadiving in the Caribbean sea, cooked sushi in a fancy restaurant in Japan, or fighting a shark with my bare hands. Well. Not the last one.

No sólo he hecho dedo por más de 50000km por todo Sudamérica sino que además no me volví loco en el proceso; eso sí tiene mérito. Y vaya, algunas de las mejores experiencias que he tenido viajando han sido surfear con mi cuerpo, despertarme en mi hamaca en la selva con unos monos usandome de columpio, andar por el Himalaya, o luchar con un tiburón con mis manos desnudas. Bueno, la última no, vale.

Teach, Learn, Share

They say: jack of all trades, king of none (or something like that). Yeah, thats me. But i have aquired some skills in the process. Photography, fencing, origami, kungfu, painting, theater, sports... oh damn! what have i been doing with my life?

Dicen que aprendiz de todo, maestro de nada. Sip. Ése soy yo. Pero en el proceso he aprendido cosas interesante: fotografía, esgrima, origami, kungfu, pintura, teatro, deportes... ¡diantres, qué he estado haciendo con mi vida?

What I Can Share with Hosts

A secret drawer full of icecream in the freezer, random factoids, yerba mate, bad jokes, tips for the city, a kitchen and a bathroom, laundry machine, green neighborhood, basket, that story of when i got lost in the ikea...
*Kinda important: I open you the doors to my house, not the doors to my fridge. Share? sure, but I won't support you.*

Un sofá que a veces me planteo si no es mejor que mi cama, un cajón secreto donde nunca falta helado, información inutil, yerba mate, chistes malos, información útil, cocina y baño, lavadora, un vecindario si no céntrico al menos verde, baloncesto, aquella historia de cuando me perdí en el ikea...
*Aviso más o menos crucial: Te abro las puertas de mi casa, no las de mi nevera. Compartir está genial pero alimentarte no entra en mi oferta.*
