About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Document projects that have a goal to save energy and resources and narrate the stories of those who make them happen.

ABOUT ME

I'm interested in the good things that live has brought to my attention, friendship, good food, reading, learning new languages, laughing, sports, nature, the mountain, the beach, nudism, camping, hiking, discovering new places, learning languages, staring at the sunset...

PHILOSOPHY

Mens sana in corpore sano. Be curious about what is happening around. Never stay still, always have a reason to walk looking at the landscape. There is always a reason to do things, even if doesn't happen instantaneously, it will happen.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I would like to connect with people who share my same interests, I especially appreciate stories from Africa where it seems always heading towards... :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have been CSing for a nearly 6 years. The first time was in Copenhaguen during the 2009 climate change conference, and I've continued ever since. I had a great time then and every other time. I hosted people during my time in Edinburgh and I loved doing it. Some of the best people I'm in touch with today were either CS hosts or guests :)

Interests

I spend a lot of my time learning languages and also working on one environment project or another. I like travelling too, especially by train. I grew up in a train station near Madrid in Spain as my dad worked for the national rail company. As a kid, I couldn't fall asleep without the noise of the train engines ongoing maintenance during the night. I often combine CS with my passion for train travel, which mostly restricts my travel space to Europe but it's great.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Live in a desert peninsula in Mozambique for a week. Get to know a local fisherman and get him to boat us back to the mainland every three days for food supplies! Camp in tents, be afraid of the police, walk for the whole day, dig safe holes, swim in the empty sea, in the empty beach, drink coconut milk, fall assleep under the Southern Milky Way, with the Southern Cross above the horizon...

Teach, Learn, Share

Get to know the world in 3 dimensions, starting with one's own, then share it.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook some decent Spanish dishes and of course share my Spanish culture but also my learning from living in other places in Africa and Europe. I can tell you how to save energy at home :)
