Moved to Valparaíso at the age of 18, fell in love with this magical city; lived, studied and worked there for about 6 years. Sometimes I study, sometimes I make street music, and sometimes I work as a teacher (or other odd jobs while on the road as well).
I spent my last days back home teaching Spanish to foreigners and English to Chilean high school students/adults. Languages never cease to amaze me and I'm a big fan of all sorts sounds that make you rejoice, smile and dance.
I've learned that one must embrace life as it comes:) and I enjoy meeting inspiring, brave and optimistic people who march to the rhythm of their own drum:D
Oh and my name's Diego (not "dieggnr")

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've done a fair bit of hosting and surfing here and there:)
CS has proven to be much more than just a free place to crash on. It's been an invaluable way of discovering each corner of this world by connecting with locals and fellow travellers.
This is all about trust guys, and that's exactly what we need in this world these days:D
New life challenges, the ocean, lakes, cities, the sound of languages, the unpredictability of solo travel, music jams, busking, working holiday visas, exploring unusual places, creativity, education, linguistics, photography, people's stories, fruits, ice cream, beer, wine, empanadas and paltas:)
Music, Movies, and Books
Un poco de todo: latin, andean, reggae, rock, cumbia chilombiana, experimental, acoustic, percussions... anything with a brass section is always tasty.
Books, movies and documentaries that inspire you to do something in the real world.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Not sure if it counts but I experienced a few severe earthquakes as a teenager in 2005 and 2007. Tsunami alert, old ladies screaming, dogs going crazy and subsequent evacuation included; just another normal day in Chile;)
Being a part of Melbourne's Crunchytown & Wellington's Crowsnest community houses was a life changing experience too.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you Español, English or melodica and give you some insights into Chilean culture and language (español chileno po).
I could share a meal anytime. Though I might not always be able to host you, feel free to drop me a line if you're in town and need any help!
I'd like to learn how to cook new dishes, write songs, sing properly and take better photos. I've started sharing some travel shots on an IG account I opened last year, feel free to check them out, feedback is always welcomed:) --> @dieggnr
What I Can Share with Hosts
Oh and also some great tips on affordable and inexpensive travelling.
Countries I’ve Lived In
Australia, Chile, Croatia, Czech Republic, New Zealand, Serbia
