About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get an excuse to cross the ocean and visit the good old continent, again - check! :)

I'm an argentinean living the dream.. I came to live to The Netherlands back in May, 2015

ABOUT ME

I get a number of weekly requests for people coming to visit Amsterdam. Although I live only 15 minutes away (21km) by train, please be aware that I don't live in Amsterdam but in Haarlem. And please, if you write me, don't tell me you're going to Amsterdam and saw my profile: It will mean you didn't read this part and you're copy pasting requests... For the rest, people is still welcome :)

- Here comes the sun is the greatest and best song ever written
- Good guy, good heart, always ready to have fun
- Always knows a fact about things
- Good asado maker (the Argentinean version of barbecue) :D

PHILOSOPHY

Good things will happen to good people and also, whatever you do, life will give it back to you (So, like the Beatles said 'and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make'..) ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I was part of the Buenos Aires group meetings as time allowed me: I had always enjoyed it, but now I moved to the Netherlands, so this will be a whole new experience for me

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've been to many CS reunions, and I also surfed while in my trip to Europe in Paris: Had a lot of fun! :)

I'm still in touch with some CS friends over this time luckily. I've been hosting people since October and it was fun every single time, I love spending time with my guests! :)

Interests

I like music, jazz preferrably (Although I'm still in the process of knowing players, I love the discovery process :P), The Beatles, hang out, enjoy other people's company while having some mates (A form of Argentinean tee), and always ready to arrange something to have something to have good memories about.
I like to take my bike and pedal until I feel like it's time to go home as I still need to head back :P, and go running to some part of the city. I used to that every day, now it ended up being once a week, but I still enjoy it :)
I like non crappy movies and try to do my best to play the guitar, but I could use some lessons too :D

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My trip to Iruya was an amazing experience, not because of the place, but for the ride to get there.

I like simple things: Having a bicycle, getting to know a place by listening the air is good enough

While I was in Europe, I realized you can still enjoy a place even if it's rainy :D

Singing in front of 200 people and forgetting the lyrics may not count.. right? :P

Teach, Learn, Share

Not stubborn people who can accept what other people think can always be someone to learn something from ;)
