About Me


To remember every capital in the world!


Adventure hunter, travel junkie and a sports enthusiast. Relaxed surfer what ponders if there is actually a wrong and right answers or is it just cultural differences! Hmmmm... let´s sit down for a beer and think about this..


"Yesterday is today´s memory but tomorrow is today´s dream." -Khalil Gibran
"Experience is one thing you can´t get for nothing" - Oscar Wilde
"Mandela´s quotes!!!"

Music, Movies, and Books

Hip-hop, reggaeton and electronic are my favourites. I like different kind of movies but most of all action films.
Spanish and mexican movies I like too because they are different than the all Hollywood films. Also because of the spanish language. I love it!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
