About Me


make people laugh!


in a few lines?! and i may include anything at all?
mmm well i have been loads of years studying agricultural engineering first and then forestry. Now i recently moved to Marseille in order to learn french and enjoy the Mediterranean sea but destiny did not a agree and sent me to Canary Islands...

I worked some years as a teacher in a special program for maladjusted guys.

I used to make noise with a guitar and more people but not anymore.

I m easy going and i like listening LPs s with a good wineglass.

Blah blah blah.


That is a long thing to explain (i would need a garden and a glass of wine to go deep into the issue). Anyway i could say i follow these guidelines:
Joker always wins
Unos me llaman chaval, otros me dicen caballero
We who are not as others
This world is crazy (and too serious sometimes)
May all the beings be happy

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Well, since it was only bikers the only ones visiting my place in their way from France to Portugal, sometimes i invited people who make open couch request.
When i couchsurf i take my time to look for an interesting profile.


Before joining CS i had a couple of them but always by chance, one was in Mexico i got lost in a village in the mountain and luckily someone picked me up.

My first CS experience has been in Milano, and it s been lovely. After that i've been living mostly in small cities or even in tiny villages so i did not host as many people as i would have wanted, but it's fine.

I am realizing that it s getting more and more common having request kind of:
"Hi. I arrive tomorrow. This is my cellphone. See you".
That would be just a waste of time for both you and me. Feeling empathy could be just a matter of a couple of minutes/lines.

Lastly, remember i am not a free hostel. A brief reference from you would be apreciated too. By the way... Do you like plants?


Several types of music, cooking vegetarian food, nature and plants in general, history and, of course, traveling.

I've been also some time struggling with the idea of growing bonsais...but it s not working yet but well
I m trying to play the guitar decently as well (it might take some decades but i'm not in a hurry)

Music, Movies & Books

I like watching movies but i m really bad with names (i don't even remember the name of a movie i've just seen)
Baraka, 99 francs, Smoke, Underground, Cidade de Deus, Zeitgeist,Turtles can't fly, π, Machuca...

I m able to enjoy almost all kinds of music, i could mention here Fridas is still in love (best band in town), Lhasa de Sela, Camaron de la isla, Radiohead, Rykers, Babylon circus, Arkangel, Dinosaur junior, Nailbomb, Niyaz,Rag men, Calexico, Fugazi, Noir desir, Raised fist, Luar na lubre...

Normally i keep reading several books at the same time (so at the end i mix them all), let´s mention The straw revolution, 1984, Women who run with wolves, Como nectar para un tamiz, Mutual aid y folletos de publicidad en general...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Vipassana meditation

Teach, Learn, Share

Since i've been studying agricultural engineering i'm supposed to know a lot about plants.
I'm good with spaghetti and destroying guitars :p

I'm really looking forward to learn Dutch and anything related with the environment, history, music, life...
