About Me




I use to see the bright side of live, not always, but 95% of the days. I use to eat fruit, veggies grilled fish but I also like nutella, and wine. I like going running, or surfing, but I can stay all day reading in the bed. I can be a nice and kind guy, but sometimes I'm not. )so be careful).I like talking and sharing with others but sometimes I want to stay alone.


There's a poet, Neruda, who wrote, in his late years a book named "I confess that I lived" On it the writer confesses blacks and whites along his lifetime. I feel somehow the same: a life well lived is full of beautiful moments and also full of sad ones, is part of it. Let's try to live it fully, with respect for the others and also with freedom

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I had hosted many couchsurfers in my house in Mallorca and showed them my favourites spots in the island. At this moment in NYC all I can offer is an airbed in the living room since apartments here are smaller.

Sorry if I don't reply to your couch request, I travel often and in NYC we receive tons of requests. Plus I DONT host people WITHOUT references.



I'm interested in traveling and arts in general, I like the human being and I love to share lunches and dinners with good company and conversation.
