About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Never give up and keep my dreams alive!

ABOUT ME

I'm open - minded and sociable, enjoying meeting people from all over the word, always ready for adventure and trying to discover and learn new things. What makes me upset is being forced to stay in one place for a longer period of time. I really enjoy offshore sailing and travelling so I can't be happier when I'm on the road again and I can feel the wind in my hair ;)

PHILOSOPHY

The greatest danger in life is not to undertake the adventure.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I joined couchsurfers hiking in Mallorca, went to Puertorrican rain forest and saw New York form the back seat of motorcycle. From that moment, couchsurfing became my best travel companion; I surfed in Europe and North America. Most recently, I joined for two weeks couchsurfers sailing along Croatian shore . And it's still just the beginning!

Interests

I'm absolutely, uncontrollably cuckoo-crazy about offshore sailing, so be careful when you start this topic. There's a great chance I'll get carried away! ;)

Amateur photography Playing guitar Latin dances Mediterranean cuisine Black and white movies Red wine (hint: Porto is my favorite! ) Hiking, Snowboarding, swimming, dancing, jogging and many others

Music, Movies & Books

I really adore old black and white movies and any kind of guitar music. Lately, I've fallen in love with Caribbean rhythms: salsa, bachata and even some reggaeton songs (an inevitable influence of living in Puerto Rico, I guess ;))

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Night swimming in the bioluminescent bay in Puerto Rico among thousands of phosphoric lights glowing with every movement.
