About Me


Have Ithaka always in my mind


There is nothing more difficult than describe yourself, so I'll try my best..
My passion for travel and for learning about different cultures brought me to London several years ago, where i spent about 7 years. I used to work as IT then became a freelancer photographer. Now Im traveling the world in a "recalculating" mission (just like a GPS).
I'd like to consider myself as an eclectic person, flexible, active, sociable, adventurous, independent and in peace with myself.
Traveling is my way of living, a state of mind. I often travel alone and mix with locals to learn their ways of living, culture and history. I use no maps, use the moon to know the day and sun to know the time. You would often find me listening music or writing on my notebook.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been an active member before I even joined CS! I have hosted, surfed, meet up with other CS's, attend to meetings, even applied for CS jobs...


Overall I consider that everyone that is open to be a CS member and open their homes to an stranger and get into an stranger's home (and respect them) is a great person. Most people i have meet has been amazing and we have exchange great things.


I love:
a good smile,
sunsets and full moons on the sea,
put my feet on the fire,
looking at the stars,
creating things with my hands,
wake up and see the sun shinning through the window,
the feeling of an altruist action,
a glass of "crema de orujo" with a good friend,
Ask the elders questions about their lives.

I hate:
any alarm clock,
rush hour at any transport method (especially underground),
winter coats,
waiting for a phone call,
hang the clothes out to dry,
taking chemical medicines,

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: I mainly read photography books and poetry. the mountains echoed was the last amazing book i read
Movies: to name a few.. Eternal sunshine of spotless mind, Delicatessen, Baraca, Lucia y el Sexo, El milagro de P. Tinto, I married a strange man, ect
