About Me


To try everything at least once for better or worse


I was born and raised in Mexico, I am a very passionate person with every single thing I do. I got tired of making plans without doing anything about it, and I decided to go to different places, see how people lived everywhere else, learn what people think, eat, watch, listen to, whatever. So far I have lived in Sweden, Denmark and Australia. My dream is to live in at least 3 more countries. Most of my knowledge about other cultures came from the Asterix books, which I read when I was a kid!

I love surfing (the real surfing not couch one), playing guitar, I love brazilian Jiu Jitsu, having beers and a good conversation at a pub and eating mexican food! I'm pretty laid back and tolerant, so respect and an opend mind attitude may be expected from me! Being from Mexico, I take this "Mi Casa es Tu Casa" thing seriously, so just remember that I am offering my home, I'm not running a hotel here.


Make sure you can make short term plans and make them happen before you venture yourself into planning your whole life sitting in a couch, lying on bed, and doing nothing about it, abandon the routine and stop procastinating!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Even before discovering this site I did couch surfing on my own without even knowing what couch surfing was...people I've met on my trips have been very nice! I am pretty laid back and definately would like to help a fellow traveler although my place is not a hotel!


When I was traveling around Europe during every trip I did, I met somebody nice enough to let me in into their homes, I would like to return the favor, if I can!
