About Me


Not to eat so much icecream... That would be a good one...


Stupid. Strange. Happy.

I have several quirks you might prefer to know about before meeting me:
-I usually try to tie the shoelaces without bending my knees
-Have conversations with myself!It is nice to see how much one can get to know about himself while doing that
-After finishing a meal I specially enjoyed, I celebrate it as Rocky after beating one of his opponents! Raising my arms as a sign of victory. Something like this:


What does philosophy mean?
What does Personal?

No freaking idea...
We are writing our own MANIFESTO COUCHSURFING!



-Every surfer aquiers immediately the same rights and duties as any other static tenant in the building.
-During his stay, surfers MUST visualize and internalize the holy dance of the fork.
-Words such as "Thank you" and its variants are completely forbidden. However, words as "son of a bitch" or "repressed fagot" will be taken with affection and hope.
-Surfers of december MUST worship the tipical galician holiday of "Trispeiro".
-Los couchsurfers deberán traer una foto tamaño carnet de sus caras para asi poder ser colgadas de nuestro mapa humano de Santiago de Compostela.
-Given that where are and feel ecologists we plead for the concept of "retroalimentación"



-Todo Couchsurfer adquiere inmediatamente los mismos derechos y deberes que cualquier inquilino estático del inmueble.
-Durante su estancia, los couchsurfers deberán visualizar e interiorizar el sagrado baile del tenedor.
-La palabra "gracias" y sus variantes están totalmente prohibidas. Sin embargo, palabras como hijo de puta o maricón reprimido serán tomadas con cariño e ilusión.
-Los couchsurfers de Diciembre deberán adorar la tipica fiesta gallega del Trispeiro.
-Los couchsurfers deberán traer una foto tamaño carnet de sus caras para asi poder ser colgadas de nuestro mapa humano de Santiago de Compostela.
-Debido a que somos y nos sentimos ecologistas abogamos por la Retroalimentación


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting and surfing whenever I can or I feel like it!
From time to time I organize curious and experimental activities for the CS community. Even though I think to meet for a beer is fine, sometimes the human being is entitled to go beyond that and search for new ways of entertainment.
2012 Hitchhikers Gathering in a remote place of the Turkish mountains.
2013 Stinky Chinese Restaurant night in Pontevedra
2013 Supermarket Tour with a special guided visit to Simply Supermarket in Zaragoza.


Very interesting people from all over the world give me my daily ingest of reality
Met several Cs on the road which made one of the greatest personal experiences in my late 20s


Bombing airplanes, putting anti-personnel landmines in the cities, baking pancakes, selling and consuming hard drugs in the Amazonas, having a shower, stabbing old women in the streets...
Nothing special...

The Art and Magic of Cooking

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ate 23 yoghurt in a row at a school trip
Washed my hair with garlic shampoo, and my brushed my teeth with garlic itself
Lost a pen in my beard
Hitchhiked a panzer in Turkey
Lived in Georgia for 3 weeks
I was a rapper in another life:
I met a alcohol smuggler in Iran who had a huge machete against Kurds
Once I saw a musician adding flour to my tomato sauce who survived the experience

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn more about bakery.
I just started learning Russian, so it would be great to host anybody willing to teach me something!!
I can teach you to cook many vegetarian dishes.
I can teach you to sell hugs or even smiles, they can be a very valuable commodity nowadays. Don´t forget it!
