About Me


Vivir / Live the life


I like to meet people, new cultures and new ways of life. I like good conversations, with humour and respect.
I´m a bit quiet, but I have not problems to talk about anything. Normally I´m a smiling guy, relaxed and crazy when I have to be crazy ;) (not bipolar!).


I live the life, thats all (I try).
