About Me


Enjoy life, stick to my principles, be open to new people and ideas, dance a lot, be happy


I am an international guy, half Belgium half Spanish. I am also catalan but above all, a "world citizen". I've always liked to travel around, discover new ways of life and interesting people.


Mens sana in corpore sano, carpe diem and pretty much any latin aphorism. I think if they have survived so mnay centureis there must be an inmortal truth in them!

Positive actitude is essencial. I like making a bond with people, I think familiarity breeds good vibes :) In general I try not to take things and live too seriously, and I like challenging the things and ideas usually taken for granted.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I don't often have the chance to accomodate Csurfers due to my demanding timetables here in BCN. You can give it a shot and send me a request though! I'm always happy to meet newcommers to the city and show them around, so if not possible to accomodate you, we may be able to meet for coffee/city walk.


I've surfed a few times around Europe and have met so many nice Csurfers, so far so good!


I like dancing -salsa, bachata and kizomba are my favourites-, sports, social activities... In general I enjoy simple things, such as reading a good book or going for a walk.
I like to travel and discover the essence and wonders of a city or town and try to be different from the regular tourist, though I wouldn't go to NY and not visit the statue of Liberty! :)

Music, Movies & Books

Any, as long as they're good! (Movies in VO better!)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Amazing things are often in simplicity. Little experience of everyday life can be as rewarding as the biggest treat

Teach, Learn, Share

I like science, sport, dance... Always happy to learn something new or share something I know :)
