About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoying and taking advantage of each moment of my life; I try to be better and happier everyday :)

ABOUT ME

I consider my self an easy-going person who tries to do as good as possible, guided by the common-sense and modern society guidelines, a person who enjoys sharing with people, learning from others and teach if I have the opportunity.

I really like taking new challenges, changes, improving in things I like to do and I really enjoy trying and learning new stuff.

I love traveling, meeting new people and new cultures, I think it is the most enriching and enjoyable experience and it is the funnest way to learn (learn from others and from personal experiences).

PHILOSOPHY

Don't be selfish, share and let other people share with you and take advantage of your life every minute so that you won't regret later.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

While being in Colombia I had the opportunity to host some people at my place and thanks to this experience, they got to know a little bit of my culture, how beautiful my country is (Colombia), a wonderful place which I am proud of; I've met great people and made new friends thanks to these cultural exchange experiences I've had through CouchSurfing.

I am not able to host people at this moment since I'll be traveling to Brasil next month, but I'll be available to host people, to go for a coffee, to show people around or for a language exchange experience once I get back from Brasil.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I hosted a couple from Seattle while I was still in Colombia, they were doing a road trip all the way down South America, three months later, I moved to Buenos Aires where I lived for almost 5 years, we met up again there and they stayed at my place in Argentina too.

When I moved to Argentina a really nice Woman from Texas hosted me the first week while I could get a place to live, she made things lot of easier for me when I got to a country where I didn't know anybody, that's why I like this community so much, the idea of helping each other with no particular interest is great.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

It is amazing what people can do with just a little bit of motivation and faith, any of us will be surprise of the things we can do just by trying it with a little effort.

I think that proving my self that I am capable of doing many things I never thought I was is amazing, many times we find barriers on our path but most of them are mental barriers that can be easily broken with willing and desire.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach or help people practicing spanish.
I would like to learn and practice languages.
I can teach people how to fold plastic bags lol.
I have taught people how to skate.
I can teach how to prepare and cook some Colombian dishes like 'Ajiaco'
I could also teach how to play the electric guitar.
