About Me

I love to learn, hear and discuss regarding politics, philosophy and life itself even though I don't know anything about the three of them. I enjoy surrounding myself with people with brains. I love topics as occultism, conspiracy theories, and so on.

I'm about to finish my degree in marketing, I would love to work in another country for a year or two. My biggest dream is to start a bussines that practices the "fair trade" I'm waiting for the day I can get my professional camera.

I don't have as many references as others because I haven't hosted as many surfers as I would like. But something awesome I find about it is all the things I learn from them, I mean, I can learn much more from surfers in a hour than a whole day at the University. One thing that I love most is to hear other's people stories, I love stories because I can learn on it. I definitely love to hear people. So you better love to talk.

I got to be the one who change his mind as nobody you have met before. I'm changing my thinking almost every second, I guess for good.

Since couchsurfing changed it's appeareance, people can't see the groups I'm member, So I guess you've to know although It's not important, I'm gay, I'm very open minded, and I'm not funny as I wished, I love to teach, give and recieve, learn and share; and I will do my best to make you feel at home.

I'm waiting for the signal to start traveling around the world. Just my bagpack and I.

By the way, I live with my family, my dad, my brother and I. When coming at my place you'll find them always treating you as part of the family, I would like you to share something with my brother, I want him to be a traveler when he grow up.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Being a traveler is the best way to learn the best, to know the best and to meet the best.
I love to be a couchsurfer because I'm feeling I can know the world through the words of my guests.
I'm at Couchsurfings because I would like to meet new friends and feel like I have a home in every spot of the world.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm in the middle of a big big break, I haven't opened a book from decades, watched a movie since ages or enjoyed for good music since ever. I guess I have to re-organize mi life and set a free time for it.

My kind of books are those like: el extranjero (L'Étranger ), Así habló Zaratustra (Also sprach Zarathustra), El principito (Le petit prince), ensayo sobre la ceguera (Essay on Blindness), La Nausea (La Nausée)... It's hard to explain, but those kind of books makes me philosophizing about life.

My kind of songs and artist are: Pablo Alboran, Dido, Madonna (pretty gay, I know), Niña Pastori, Lorde, James Morrison, Rihanna, Alejandro Sanz, Calle 13, Fun, James Blunt... Kind of blue, quiet, like that...

Movies: Again, those wich leave you with a message, like: The life of pi, Stand by me, Brokeback Mountain, Inception,

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to the University only to tell my friends: “tomorrow I'm going to China“. Neither my friends, neither my family believed me...

I slept at the great wall, and I keep saying is the best adventure I had in China, I met wonderful people.

I slept at the ruins of St. Paul's.

What I Can Share with Hosts

-I'll offer an untidy house, we are three guys at home, sometimes it's impossible to keep the house tidy more than a day.
-A friend who loooooves to hear histories from travelers, that's the best use I take from Couchsurfing, so I ask you to teach me something, whatever you like.
-Most of time I'm bussy at the University from 7am to 10pm... sometimes I'm free at mornings but on vacations I hope I'll be free for you. I love walking, biking and swimming. I can take you to whenever you want to go. You can feel at home staying at my place. Some pleople ask their guests to leave the house while they are not at home. Some people let their guests to stay at the couch while sleeping at their place, I found it terrible! I think guest should not be treated like that.
