About Me

CURRENT MISSION
Figure it out if becoming a full time digital nomad or not. Grow as a person, keep exploring, discovering and feeling the world around me.

IMPORTANT: If you want me to host you please make sure that your profile is complete and make sure you already have few references (personal references also count). CS is a community to give and receive, not a free accommodation, so I hope you have healthy balance between you as a host and as a surfer.

ABOUT ME
I'm an open mind person who like to travel, discovering new places, meet new amazing people. However I'm a bit stubborn but I learn how to deal with it. I can listening to you at any time. I really enjoy traveling and looking for a adventure. I really like food, beer and wine, Eating and drinking (together) are one of the most wonderful things in life.
I work as a engineer and have the possibility to do workation, but still not decided to go all in for it. Also, I'm on my way of dancing some salsa, so if you are into dancing, can't promise much but i enjoy it.

PHILOSOPHY
The greatest things in life are experience that make you happy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

This community is for people who believe that you can trust to everybody. I think is important to trust each other dispite the race, colour, religion and anything. What is the most interesting of this CS project is the opportunity to have contact from all kind of people and become friends (if it's possible)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I hosted around 30 people and I also received couch around 8 times. People that i met in CS in the past are the one that provide couch in my trips. I didn't had a nice experience in terms of receiving couch. Seems that CS has changed not for good in that sense.

I have also made some trekking events, pub crawl and food tours in my city as well as local tour to the couchsurfers I hosted.

The amazing thing of this website is that you can re-unite with people you hosted, surfed or travelled with after many years in other parts of the world. That's great. I met some life friend in here and reconnect with old CS friends too after many years. Connecting people is the most awesome experience in here.

Interests

I'm a foody lover. Beside food, i like craft beer and wine, with the right company you can have a great experience. I also can cook some. It is relaxing in a way since it is totally different skill set needed for I'm used to so, leaving my comfort zone is great.

I'm also interested in meeting new people, new culture. Have long chats about life, culture, any subject. It is always nice to hear other peoples point of view, experiences in life and stories.

I love hiking and cycling, it is a way of keep me activated. I used to surf and climb with need to train my body again in order to do so.

I like to dance salsa, learning at the moment, so if you are into it, lets practice.

I also like to walk a lot. During my trips i prefer to discover cities by foot. If you visit my city, I can take you a walking tour :D

Music, Movies, and Books

I really like any kind of music but I prefer rock, alternative, punk, metal to listen.
For dancing I like salsa, cumbia, latín and the new music xD

Recently I was not able to read much literature. I like books about Perú and people stories.

I love movies. We might go to watch one anytime :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Did the Salkantay trek to have amazing view of the andrean mountains. To reach Machi Picchu is amazing. I had a very great company, that's why :)

90 days workation trip to Europe. 10 countrys, 16 cities. new culture, new languages, new people, new experiences.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you about Peruvian food, beer and party places :) in my city. We can talk about life, music and technology. I can cook, so I teach you some Peruvian dishes.

I want to learn from other people experience in any field. I really enjoy people who can tell stories about themselves (because I am not very good at it). I want to be amused by others people life stories.

I would like to share my own experience and help others people in finding their own way home.
