About Me


To experience the world at its best: It's people, culture, knowledge & beauty!


Important Information
Back to the road! Feel free to message me if you feel like having a drink or showin me a bit of ur place :-)

About me
I'm a student, backpacker & beach lover who wishes to CSurf the world around, not only by staying at places but actually spending quality time with local CSurfers & families , visiting favorite secret sights and making friends along the way. I really enjoy learning things relating the city I'm visiting; it's people, walking the entire downtown, taking pictures, eating its food and DEFINITELY VISITING THE COOLEST CLUBS & BARS ON THE AREA. I understand the concept behind CS, depending on the budget I have, I normally return some of the CSurfer's generosity, by inviting her/him some drinks at a bar or something like that and always a great smile.
How I Participate in CS
Sharing my place, culture, ideas, talking about the project to friends & sometimes organizing some meetings. I was also a Nomadic Amb for a year in Europe and a City Amb for another year in Monterrey, México.
Besides learning about different cultures or having one of those night-long conversations I enjoy sharing about my culture:Taking a break to enjoy afternoons
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.Follow your bliss."When you find your passion or what you really want to do and go about doing it, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be."Enjoy the power & beauty of your youth, you are not as fat as you imagined,Do one thing everyday that scares you.Don't be reckless on others people’s hearts, don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.Relax.Don’t waste your time on jealousy, sometimes you are ahead sometimes you are behind.The race is long and at the end you are competing only with yourselfRemember complements you receive, forget the insults.keep your old love letters.Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life.Enjoy your body, don’t be afraid of it or of what other ppl thinking of it.It is the greatest instrument you will ever own.Do not read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.Get to know your parents, you’ll never know when they will be gone for good.Be nice to your siblings, they are the best link to the past and they will most likely stick with you in the future.Understand that friends come and go, but there a precious few that you should hold on to.Travel,Accept certain and inevitable trues, prices will rise politicians will lie, you too will get old,and when you do, you will remember that when you were young, prices were reasonable and politicians didn't suck.
"... in every life we have some trouble,when you worry you make it doubledon't worry, be happy..."There are only four questions of value in lifeWhat is sacred?Of what is the spirit made?What is worth living for?And what is worth dying for?The answer to each is the sameloveLife is book, full of chapters. It's up to you if you stay on the same one or move on to the next one. -I'll never forget, when someone told me:I spent the first 30 years of my life trying to become somethingI want to become good at things, to become good at tennis, at schooland everything I can do in that perspectiveI'm not ok with what I am, but if id got to do those things...I realized I had the game wrongthat the game was to find out what I already was.Thinking back I realize that I'm happy for every sad moment in my life, because before every sad moment there was a very happy oneWhy is it that in life there's always an easy butexpensive or a cheap but hard way to do things."... When you don't knowexpect always the best but prepared for the worse..."Wir sind morgen das, was wir heute denkenYou want something, go get it. Period.Slowly, that I'm on a hurryGood luck to you... and meJe pense que tu êtes joliAll you need is loveIch glaube an LiebeCompartir es vivir1 Zloth PizzaBleibt ruhigAll the best

"...Surfing isn't just be about a place to sleep. It's about exchange..." I indeed agree with this quote; it has completely changed the way people are, to my eyes. It’s about generosity that does surpass borders. I haircut myself, can teach u how.Traveling in Germany, check mitfahrgelegenheit.com Really cheap car sharing website, the best!I post some of my favorite songs in this link
Opinion on the CS Project
When I heard about it, I had to be part of it.Couchsurfing -like all best other ideas- seem so simple and obvious that you really wonder why it didn't start sooner!
