About Me


spiritual evolution


I am a very passionate person, with a youthful and extroverted spirit. I like to experience different cultures. I really like to travel because I am a trekking guide, so I am always in movement! I am a man impassioned for life, and I believe in travel and cultural exchange as a reason for living. To me, love is a vital essence for the harmony of all beings, one love!!!


My philosophy is to live with Love, to enjoy the liberty and opportunity of this life. I respect diversity and my general philosophy is preservation of human life and Gaia, our natural world, for complete harmony and comprehension of the supreme universe of the JAH!!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I feel that couchsurfing is a possibility for an exchange of experience and cultures. I can contribute to the CS community by offering my house, and visiting the house of others, in order to facilitate the trade of cultures, ideas and friendship.


I am new to this website community, but because I have worked for a long time as a trekking guide, I have lot of experience hosting people of other cultures in my home.


My interests are to meet new friends, exchange new information and love. My hobbies are art, photography, dance, music, cooking, basically anything good and creative.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Two years ago during New Year I saw something very special; in the exact moment that the year turned there was a great explosion in the sky. It wasn't fireworks, it was a beautiful meteorite illuminating the sky as if it were part of the celebration. The most beautiful thing, magic!!!
