Join Couchsurfing to see Arturo’s full profile. It’s free!
I want to travel to countries and meet the people, avoid hostels as I am not of that age/emoitionality category
I am an Argentinean citizen but raised on the island of Aruba, off the coast of Venezuela and far from from Buenos Aires. I speak 4-5 languages: English, Spanish, Dutch, Papiamento Creole, French. My French is the less fluent. I am a writer and visual arist and especially like to meet artists or people with a lot of background in or love for the arts.
My philosophy is probably Pythagorean. Philosophy is always impersonal (but that is not pejorative.)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I hope to host people occasionally, to have good things to say to good people about the project so they can participate too.
I hosted a nice Polish couple when I lived in Amsterdam
