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, lived there for more than five years. 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.

I've learned that one must embrace life as it comes, with every single victory and defeat it brings along. I particulary love inspiring, brave people who march to the rhythm of their own drum. Languages never cease to amaze me and I'm a big fan of all sorts sounds and melodies that make you rejoice, smile and dance!

Oh and my name's Diego.

PHILOSOPHY

"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.

I particularly like travellers who don't entirely copy paste CS requests, let's keep this site spam-free please!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I hosted and met a big bunch of travellers, musicians and locals when I lived in Valparaí­so, Chile. I also had the chance to discover a bit of the Aussie lifestyle while backpacking and surfing couches myself for the first time in Australia in 2012.

Interests

New challenges, the ocean, the sound of languages, creative music, education, linguistics, diverse people, travelling experiences, fruits, empanadas, ice cream, beer and wine.

Music, Movies, and Books

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

Libros/películas: 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 a bit of Español, English or melodica, and give you some insights into Chilean culture, language and society.

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

Countries I’ve Lived In
