About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To do a lot of nothing

ABOUT ME

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 lives 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, see how the outside of the comfort zone looks like, learn something about it and try to stop being an ignorant little dot.

PHILOSOPHY

Follow the blue rabbit.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

It's so handy you kinda get addicted to CS. Everytime I travel I have to couchsurf a bit or I get coldturkey, swetting, shaking and all that...
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!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

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

To do paragliding in Organyà (La Seu d'Urgell-Cataluya)You feel like a bird, it's amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

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