About Me

Adventurer, musician (www.sleepsignal.org), photographer, story teller and story listener, language collector (12 languages).

After having spent 7 years traveling by bike and living in different places outside of EU, I have hard time to adapt to occidental civilised world. So, in the summer I still prefer to live outside. This summer I hiked from Catalunya to Basque country along the Pyrenees. My base is in Berlin, where I work on my music project.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I would like to be part of this network to exchange information, sometimes accommodation.

Interests

I like ancient stuff - languages, stones, old writings.

If I could make magic with time, I would want to go to China during the Tang dynasty (618 - 907), to Bactria (Kushan empire, present day Afghanistan) during the reign of Kanishka (ca. 150), and Europe when in Iberian peninsula Basque language was widely spread....

I also like to cook, look at the art, to think, to have a smart conversation, hike, learn languages, photography

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
