About Me

Hello you there! I a sociable person, always in a great mood, I love joking and fooling around :P but still I serious if the situation requires that.

I love sports! Played rugby for six years, practiced body-board. At the moment I doing surf and kitesurf.
Hmm, you may say 'Argentina land of football', sure... but not for me haha.

PHILOSOPHY

Some quotes I like:

“You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” ― Jon Kabat-Zinn

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.” ― Oscar Wilde

"Find what you love and let it kill you." — Charles Bukowski

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Well I love the idea of CS, when I played rugby we always make exchanges trips, so we were living in the house of a guy of the other team and surely I love that experience.

I met a lot of people through CS, in meetings and road trips. I love CS :).
