About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn a song in every possible language!!

ABOUT ME

Moved to Valparaíso at the age of 18, fell in love with this magical city, been here for more than six years now. Sometimes I study, sometimes I make music, sometimes I work as a foreign language teacher, which basically means that in the morning I teach Spanish to international students, and in the evening I teach English to my fellow Chileans.

And my name's Diego.

PHILOSOPHY

"Mind your language... use it to spread great ideas"

"El pan se parte con las manos, pero se reparte con el corazón"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Dando una mano cada vez que sea posible. Though I might sometimes not be able to host you, feel free to drop me a line if you're planning to be in town, there's always some time to go for a drink or play a couple of songs.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Since 2011, I've been hosting and meeting a big bunch of amazing travellers, musicians and locals in Valparaí­so, Chile. I also had the chance to discover a bit of the Aussie lifestyle while surfing couches myself for the first time in Australia a couple of years ago.

>> 2015 update: back in the land of Steve Irwin for and I think I'll be living in Sydney for the next months.

Interests

The sea, the sound of languages, creative music, education, linguistics, travelling experiences, fruits, empanadas, paltas, sharing a dinner, beer or wine. Sounds and melodies that make you rejoice, smile and dance!

Music, Movies & Books

Música: un poco de todo, acústicas, sonidos latinos, reggae, rock, cumbia chilombiana, anything with a brass section is always tasty!

Libros/películas: basadas en hechos reales hasta donde se pueda... anything that inspires people to do sth in the real world!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

- Earthquakes in northern Chile as a teenager (2005 & 2007).

- Easter Confest (April 2012).

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you Español, English, or melodica, and give you some insights into Chilean culture, language and society.

I'd like to learn how to cook new recipes, write songs, play accordion, and I'm always up for practising a bit of Português, Deutsch, Svenska or Suomi!
