About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live everyday the life of my dreams, and get to meet amazing new people, cultures and countries in the way

ABOUT ME

I was born in Comodoro Rivadavia, you probably don't know where that is, unless I tell you is Patagonia!

I love riding my bike, meeting new people, music, dancing, and all forms of art; I think it's one of the best ways to express ourselves. I do so with photography, and I am keen on learning more and more forms of self-expression. I think the world is beautiful in a million ways, and my passion is to capture and frame the beauty of it as I see it and share this vision with others.

I'm always eager to have fun, love to laugh a lot (probably too much), and I'm very close to my inside child; however, I also love to have a good conversation and get to know life and the place we live in through other's eyes.

I've been in Couchsurfing for a while now, and I'm involved, usually able to host you (with a good request of course). I've been travelling for South East Asia for the last couple of months, and I'm now about to start my second leg of the trip in Europe!

PHILOSOPHY

"Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're right" Henry Ford
Live and let live, don't discriminate.
No violence.
Very spiritual, but Agnostic and very respectful and willing to learn other religious and spiritual views.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Meetings, drinks, hosting, good moments, parties, walks, biking, whatever comes up at the moment.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted many people at my home, and luckily was able to stay and meet amazing people in New York, and a very cool and lovely Thai girl called Natta in Chiang Mai. Looking forward to expand this tenfold in Europe!

Anything that makes me dance, feel or think. I usually change the kind of music I hear from time to time.

But in the end, I think what really gets to me is the kind of music that is made with passion. and love for it. Very eager to listen and go to concerts of bands I've never heard of!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've kayaked to lonely islands in the lovely Vietnam.

I've rode a Scooter to places you shouldn't drive a scooter in, I also have the scars to prove it.

I've danced until the sunrise on top of rocks in the middle of islands, because why the hell not?

I went down the stream of a cascade and felt terrified of it, but did it anyway, only to find out I had to jump 11 meters into a pool of water after that.

I've swimmed in the Patagonian sea at night on chilling water, and jumped into a stream of ice cold transparent water, only to immediately try to get out!

I can change the colour of my eyes with the weather and light of day, that's probably a superpower (unfortunately, not something I could use against a robber to prevent him from mugging and old lady and save the day)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can always teach you about technology, design, photography, marketing, advertisement, economics, computers, internet memes, games, and a lot of interesting things that you could find in an Encyclopedia.

I'm always willing to learn new things, I am extremely curious (that's my gift, or maybe my doom) and open minded. Your passion is my amusement, and I'd always love to know what your purpose in life is.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I can share experiences, some small gifts from my travels, my skills and my good humour, and many more things depending on what you like. I'm extremely polite and won't bother you in any way. I'm very respectful of other people's privacy and understand I'm sort of invading your home, so I'll try to be the less of a nuisance as possible, while also trying to have a great time and enjoy my stay.

Countries I've Visited

Cambodia, Laos, Portugal, Thailand, United States, Uruguay, Viet Nam

Countries I've Lived In
