About Me

Although my response rate is 38%, I do respond to Couch Requests and Messages. The new website update messed up my response rate.

***Profile below is CURRENT as of 12 March 2017***
***If YOU send a Couch Request, READ everything under "MyHome"***

What can I say? I'm a thrill-seeker, an adrenaline junkie. I do stuff that must people won't do on a regular basis. I love skydiving, scubadiving, theme parks, and all those fun things.

I'm originally from Colombia, but lived in Orlando Florida USA for about 12 years, moved to San Antonio Texas USA for work, and CURRENTLY living in Trier Germany. I would love to travel the world, meet interesting people and see what life has to offer.

I speak both English and Spanish. I'm 25 years old.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Why I'm on Couchsurfing? That's actually a pretty good question. I found out about CouchSurfing back in 2011, got to admit that I was very hesitant and nervous about surfing at other people's houses. But when I had my first experience in Lima Peru, I was hooked. For me, CouchSurfing is more than free accommodations. It is a way to explore different cultures and a great way to make friends. Friends that i wouldn't make if I had travel the regular way. I believe that CouchSurfing can have a great impact on people's lives. It is a way to push people out of their comfort zone. It is a way to see the world through other people's eyes. I see myself using this site for the rest of my life, either by offering my house to other people, or surfing while I travel the world.

Interests

My main interest is to travel. I have the opportunity to do so at the moment and I will most definitely take advantage of that fact.

Nothing can be more rewarding than exploring the world and making friends along the way.

Carpe Diem :D

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

TO BE UPDATED - 12 March 2017

Teach, Learn, Share

“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.”
