About Me

We are a young Basque/Italian family with two kids: a little girl, Oihana (2007) and a boy, Asier (2010). We love to travel and to know different cultures and everyone else in here I bet ;) It is a must!
We are easy people that enjoy simple things like a stroll in a park or a good chat. We love natural landscapes and when visting a city we like just walking around, have a beer and getting a sense of what life is like in that particular part of the world.
We are quite active in CS (hosting and surfing) as we believe that we can teach our children about respect, hospitality, cultural differences and different languages and religions, but of course if we show them, it is much more effective :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We participate offering a place to anyone who can reach it!


We love mountains: trekking and rock climbing, even if often we haven't got time for that...
We both love walking in the nature, reading novels and having dinner with friends!
We have our own vegetable garden and we are interested in organic farming (even if at the moment we know very little about it)

And no need to say... TRAVELLING!

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many of them! We love reading and watching movies..
Just few of them are:
- Books (or better say Authors): Ken Follett, Frank Schätzing, Khaled Hosseini, Tolkien, Terry Brooks, Isaac Asimov, Jon Krakauer, Paulo Coelho, Alessandro Baricco, Stieg Larsson, Carlos Ruiz Zafon, John Grisham, Michael Crichton, Gioconda Belli, Mauro Corona and many more... (see my library: )
- Movies: Almost everything of Roberto Benigni. Most of all "Life is beautiful - La vita è bella". And too many other to fit in this small box :)
- Music: uhm.. nearly everything depending on the moment. Usually Rock, Punk-Rock, Ska, Folk.. Not really a fan of disco music.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing we have seen (and done) so far... our little kids!

We also lived during a couple of year in Guatemala working in a development project of farmers cooperatives... a very "enriching" experience!
Here you can find some pictures:

What I Can Share with Hosts

We live in a farm house, 15 minutes away from the town of Elgoibar, a bit isolated but in a peaceful place. We highly recommend you to come with your car or your bike, so that you can move to visit other places, do some shopping ecc.
We are still refurbishing the house. The bedrooms are almost finished, so you can have your own bedroom.
Just remember that our house is not a hotel. We have our full time jobs, 2 kids to take care of them, house chores, the garden, the refurbishment... If we can, we will show you around, but it won't be always possible.
We expect couchsurfers to be one more in our family, participating in everyday duties.
