If we cannot prolong our life, why don't we increase its width? So enjoy your life! Hakuna matata!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Just do whatever I can to take an active part in it: hosting, surfing, hang out with surfers or hosts around the city, etc. But the most important thing is communication, to get a better understanding of a place, and its culture or to help others have a knowledge of my culture. I'm a world citizen. I hope to pass this philosophy to others.


Hosted some travelers both in Santiago and in China. Hang out frequently. Couchsurfed in several cities like Frankfurt, Milan, Stockholm, San Sebastian...
