About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy life, live, share, exchange and experiment ...

ABOUT ME

I am very enthusiastic and friendly person and I like to enjoy every moment of my journey as my life .... I´m the guy that likes to start a conversation wherever I am.. it could be in the street or in a new place I visit, and even say hi to the maintenance people.. I really like to receive a smile, it makes me the day!!!

.. I love to meet people on every trip I make and share experiences with them ... I like to be adventurous and I really like diversity. I like to dance, have a meal, go to bar, go camping (other risk activities) and activities proposed for local people too.

PHILOSOPHY

Take the opportunity because if you don´t take it somebody will take it instead of you... Live every moment like the final day, enjoy and share good time with others... life is very short.. Just live every moment!!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Although I have had little experience here, I use to travel through some references from friends and family or people by other media and apps

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I used to have two more references (up to 2015) but probably that people are not anymore in CS.. but I would like to have more new experiences, meet new people from different places of the world, as I did in AIESEC, as a student, where I could do the same like here (CS)...I traveled, I hosted foreigns in my house, I was hosted by others, it was a great experience!

I have already had the opportunity to be hosted with a great experiences and I´m going to be more participative both as surfer and as a host

This time (2016) I´m going to Japan, China, Thailand and Indonesia.. and I have already plans with CSurfers...!!!

Interests

Touristic and historical places, museums, bars, meals, dinners, dancing (salsa and local music), and all kind of activities that can enrich my adventure and of the people around me.. I like music, artistic events, opera, novels, business, cuisine, languages, history and knowing about differences by meeting local and travelers from different cultures and ways of thinking..

Music, Movies, and Books

I love almost all kind of music. I like music to dance because i´m latino; salsa, cumbia, bachata, rock & roll, pop, electronic, hip hop, R&B, lounge, etc.. I like to read novels, books about unknown and universe, I like history and watch movies of drama, comic (funny movies), comedy and about real life..

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Be security staff in an electronic party, without alcohol, as a volunteer in Seattle Washington, as teenager, lol...

Throw myself from a peak of the mountain to the sea in Negril, Jamaica.

I represented Mexico in an International Congress of AIESEC, in Greece, Amazing!

We (3 couples) got into a grand cave in Taxco, México, without having eaten, without adequate clothes (in swimsuit) and before we got into the cave we had to walk by nature like 4 hours, just with a bottle of water, and then in the cave we had to go down with rappelling equipment, but we didn´t have that equipment!!, then having being into the cave we had to pass through the cave with some lamps (all dark) and walking and swimming through almost frozen water for another 3 hours while girls were crying but somebody heard us out of the cave and they helped us to get out of it with full equipment... This was in the Grutas of Chantacoatlan and underground rivers.. It was about life or death!

I started travelling very young (16) and meeting interesting people around the world, those experiences brought me a real sense of life... I want to go on and repeat some of them as much as I can!!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach Spanish and other skills as well as advise somebody that has certain needs about business and marketing themes. I can teach Salsa, Cumbia, Bachata, etc..
