About Me

Mis últimos años los he pasado trabajando en un Servicio de Urgencias de un Hospital, soy enfermero, quizás todo ese tiempo me haya hecho ver un poco el verdadero sentido de esta vida y quisiera aprovechar el tiempo haciendo cosas que me hagan disfrutar.

Me pedí un permiso sin sueldo a comienzos de 2017 y me fuí de cooperante medio año a Senegal, había hecho cosillas en mis vacaciones en Guatemala o Etiopia, pero me apetecía algo mas largo. Ahora me quiero dedicar un poco a mí, viajar, conocer gente interesante, perderme por rincones donde me encuentre a personajes capaces de ver la vida de otra manera, aprender, compartir, aportar. en definitiva vivir momentos inolvidables con personas que como yo, quieren de hacer de la vida una bonita experiencia. 😀

Soy un tipo tranquilo y curioso, aprendiendo a disfrutar de lo diferente y desconocido. No necesito drogas para volar y soy un gran apasionado de la montaña y la playa y sobre todo de grandes paseos e interesantes charlas hasta altas horas de la madrugada.

El 2018 ha sido fantástico después de pasar los primeros meses del año por Sudamérica, acabo de terminar un nuevo proyecto profesional en La Habana (Cuba), donde estuve unos meses.

Regresé a España a luchar con la pandemia y después de casi dos años vuelvo a la aventura de couchsurfing con muchas ganas e ilusión.

"Lo bonito de un viaje, no es el viaje en sí, sino una nueva forma de ver las cosas".

I spent my last years working in a Hospital Emergency Service, I am a nurse, maybe all that time I have seen a little the true meaning of this life and I would like to take the time doing things that make me enjoy.

I asked for a leave without pay at the beginning of 2017 and I went as a volunteer for half a year to Senegal, I had done little things in my vacations in Guatemala or Ethiopia, but I wanted something longer. Now I want to dedicate myself a little bit, to travel, to meet interesting people, to get lost in corners where I find characters able to see life in a different way, to learn, to share, to contribute. In short, live unforgettable moments with people like me who want to make life a beautiful experience. 😀

I am a quiet and curious guy, learning to enjoy the different and unknown. I do not need drugs to fly and I am a big fan of the mountain and the beach and especially of great walks and interesting talks until the wee hours of the morning.

2018 was fantastic after spending the first months of the year in South America, I just finished a new professional project in Havana (Cuba), where I spent a few months.

I returned to Spain to fight the pandemic and after almost two years I start to the couchsurfing adventure again with great enthusiasm.

"The beauty of a trip is not the journey itself, but a new way of looking at things."
