About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see life; to see the world; to eyewitness great events; to watch the faces of the poor and the gestures of the proud; to see things thousands of miles away, to see and to take pleasure in seeing; to see and be amazed; to see and be instructed…

ABOUT ME

I think that there is not better description than the reference the people put in my profile.
I think that I'm a polite ,spontaneous, sensitive and friendly person. I like the small things in life, I love to share time with people drinking a wine, listening music and talking about life.
I love to make new friends, know new cultures and travel.
I want to plan a travel all around the world with a sailing boat.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is too short to be afraid.

If our lives are dominated by a search for happiness, then perhaps few activities reveal as much about the dynamics of this quest - in all its ardour and paradoxes - than our travels. They express, however inarticulately, an understanding of what life might be about, outside the constraints of work and the struggle for survival. Yet rarely are they considered to present philosophical problems - that is, issues requiring thought beyond the practical. Alain de Botton

“I read somewhere that in life, it is not necessary to be strong but to feel strong, to look for yourself once in a while, to measure yourself once in a while… the freedom and simple beauty are too good to pass up…the core of man’s spirit comes from the joy of new experiences…” Alexander Supertramp

Vivir es aprender, para ignorar menos. Es amar, para vincularnos a una parte mayor de humanidad. Es admirar para compartir las excelencias de la naturaleza; es un esfuerzo por mejorarse, un incesante afán de elevación hacia ideales definidos.

To see life; to see the world; to eyewitness great events; to watch the faces of the poor and the gestures of the proud; to see strange things — machines, armies, multitudes, shadows in the jungle and on the moon; to see man’s work — his paintings, towers and discoveries; to see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to; the women men love and many children; to see and to take pleasure in seeing; to see and be amazed; to see and be instructed…

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
Helen Keller

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

A friend introduced me the concept of Couchsurfing and I liked from the begining. I think that is a perfect concept to know new people, do new friends and visit other cities. It change definitely my way of travel.
