About Me

Hey there!

I'm Javier but you can call me Hulio, Greg, Randy, 富大海, Oreo or in any other way as long as it has a reason (as all of them)!

After years selling my life to big companies, I had enough and quit my job! Now I am poorer than ever but happier as well, living every single day doing what I am best for: traveling!

With no special hobby in life (yet), I prefer to try different things rather than staying with one - at least once! Discovering the world is something that keeps me alive and sane, taking risks to enjoy life!

I've lived so far in America, Europe and Asia, making me as I call it "a world citizen with Mexican passport" - very proud of it!

"When you look back on life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the ones you did" - so no regrets!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

The more I travel, the more I like my culture! Sharing it with travelers makes me feel super proud, I like to think I'm an (honorary) ambassador :-) I am pleased to explain every single aspect of life in my country, all questions welcome!

Hosteling is good to meet people, but couchsurfing is great to make friends! I always say it, I don't go to a country to meet people from another country, and in hostels that's pretty much the case!

Interests

A bit surprising as Mexican but I don't like soccer, so I have few to talk about! I love outdoors instead so skiing, surfing, camping or hiking are more my style! I hate routines so you won't find me in a gym!

I want to make this world a better place to live (seriously), so I read a lot about History, Politics, Economy... a bit strange for an Engineer! I can discuss for hours about that, so be prepared if you like the topic, I may not let you sleep!

I know I can do much more than having a job, so since a couple of years I've been looking for a revolutionary idea to transform the society and start a business, I had some that I eventually found they already existed, so I gotta be faster!

I love dogs. I hate cats.

Music, Movies & Books

I have a LONG list of books I want to read but I just don't do it! I enjoyed Les Miserables, the first time I read a book before watching the movie! I spend quite a long time in Wikipedia though, does it count? A great way to know a bit about the world to me! The Economist is my favorite magazine as well!

Coldplay has been my favorite band since I was 12! I also like RW, M5, MJ, JT and FS (guess 3 of 5 for a couch)! For dancing I love Latin music of course! Reggaeton, Merengue, Bachata, Rancheras...

I am more a series than movies person, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and Big Bang Theory at the moment, tempted to watch House of Cards too! The Simpsons is my favorite TV show since I was born!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Apple-picking summer in the States working with immigrants and fugitives!

Living in China has been the best (and hardest) experience of my life so far! 干杯!

Backpacking South America (right now) has been amazing too, a great story for my grandchildren!

Teach, Learn, Share

After living in Germany, Canada and China I have plenty of stories and adventures to share that didn't kill me but made me stronger!

Free Spanish lessons of course, Mexican food, traveling tips and tricks... Just ask, I may know about that too!

My food, my time, my life, ME!
