I actually was born in the Canary Islands in Spain where I spend around 19 years and then I move to Belgium to finish my studies. I am now living in Liège where I have just started a PhD in Neuroscience.
I cannot express something precise to define me. I'm a person very variable (not in a pathological way hehe) and with an open mind. I have the 'premise' that to have fixed ideas makes a limited thinking and that contradict itself makes us learn more about us. This defines me.
Well... I am not sure I have a determinated 'personal phylosophy' but I consider that the best way to live is to have an open mind and, particulary, haven't fixed ideas about nothing because, I think, normally lead to have a biased thinking.
This it's not too much but I live according to it. Open-minded, open to experience and all kinds of people. Everybody has something that teach to you and to share, every person, every mind, is a world.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I am in couchsurfing because I love meeting local people all around the work, because only them have a real knowledge about their cities, the nicest spots to see and visit, where to listen live music and have fun.
I am not in CS to "have a place where to stay for a few days" but for learn about different cultures and meet people, to share with them some time and in another way this will be impossible.
Traveling around only going to hotels and visiting spots recommended by a travel book as most of people do is just boring and no sense.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I think... I was a few years ago in Bern, with a CS. She has a house in the middle of a huge green field with a view to the Alps and I just was there, hanging out with her, playing with her dog and It was awesome the peace, the silence, everything was perfect.
Teach, Learn, Share
Now Sharing... Music:
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can share knowledge about my culture, about the spanish language and the gastronomy of my homeland. I can share knowledge about Neuroscience or just a guitar lesson even if I am amateur.
