About Me


To do a lot of nothing


One thing I like to do is to observe behaviors. One of the reasons why I like Barcelona is the big variety of people. Sitting in a bench looking at them, thinking and imagining how their lifes are is entertaining enough for me (I'm pretty cheap to entertain).
In the end I always feel like a little dot in a enormous DIN-A1 paper. It's a good motivation for traveling, look at all these tourists in their holiday bubble and wonder how their routine looks like. The real thing, being little dots aswell in this massive white paper.
Perhaps, after passing through many different big sheets of paper and meeting a lot of different little dots, we can get to learn something and be a -not so stupid little dot-


Follow the blue rabbit.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


It's so handy you kinda get addicted to CS. As any other social activity it can be super fun, or boring, or life changing, or awkward. I've never had a negative experience, and among the good ones I've met some amazing people that in a way or another have changed my life. Even if it was only 1 person, just for the possibility of meeting someone like that CS is alrady worth trying.
I also host people. Though Barbera is not as attractive as Barcelona, so I don't get a lot of requests. If your request is nice, your profile is filled, and I'm available, I probably will host you. Anyhow, please don't send a copy-paste request, I'm allergic to it!


When you're travelling, CS is like your family, they can help you if you're in trouble, they host you if you're on the street (it sounds kind of a sect, but it's true). And if you live in another country, it makes your social life much easier. Basically you can't get bored, there's always funky people in CS!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I can't choose. Sometimes the best things in life are the most boring and simple ones. It would just sound too cheeasy to write them here ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

You always learn things from the people around you. For me, this is probably the whole point of traveling and using Cs.
