About Me


To travel, to meet people, to make a better world


I'm Carlos Apple.

Graphic designer who likes photography, meeting people, scouting places, camping, hicking, hitchhicking, cooking while listening music and cs addict.

Born in Altonga, into the mountains of Veracruz,
> 1984-2002 Raised in Tuxpan
> 2002-2005 Studying in Monterrey
> 2006 Exchange program in Grenoble, France, the year that I met CS
> 2007-2009 Studying and working in Monterrey
> 2010 Working and living in Toulouse, France
> 2011-2014 Seems like I am living in Tuxpan but sometimes I'm out almost for a month because I like to travel around.

fascination is my emotion and emotion is my energy for live. I like to enjoy details with the different activities that you will see in my photos starting with "le me"


1. If you have the chance to take a trip, go ahead and don't look back
2. Some people prefer to die embracing the pillow, I prefer to take the road without mattering when or where I am going to stop walking

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I like to host/visit/meet people in CS, since my time in Toulouse I became a meeting maker, therefore I can barely know most part of the CS members around Veracruz and from other cities in Mexico, because I like to meet and share time with the whole CS family.

I am supporting CS meetups in every place where I am, I'm part of the organization behind of the national meetups in Mexico and I always try to give the best advice to the new members about how to use CS.


> 2006 Travelling & surfing in Europe
> 2007-2009 Hosting in Tuxpan & Monterrey, some meetings.
> 2010 I've been sharing time with the group of CS Toulouse through many meetings, pic nics and enjoying the good will of the people that I met there, they turned me into a new sense of community and cs values.
> 2011- 2014 Hosting, travelling, surfing and meeting maker

You can check on my photos, year by year with Couchsurfing

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Well, my father in 1980 met a french couple in the park of his place, he invited them for to take a drink and talk, they were in touch for long time and eventually they visited us many times while their traveling in Mexico, my uncle did the same going to france and staying at their place, and in 2006 I visited them many times, they are like my 2nd family.

The thing is, how this friendship can last until these days
