About Me

MISION: Contribuir a la fraternidad entre las culturas

No hay un "todo sobre mi"...

Amistoso, simpático, de mentalidad abierta y sincero. Amo viajar y conocer gente de todos los países, culturas y razas.

Me crié en Antofagasta (norte de Chile) con mi hermano menor y 6 primos, así que siento que soy un tipo muy paternal y preocupado por el grupo. Mi familia tiene raíces palestinas, vascas e italianas.

Soy Abogado, Bachiller en Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales y Licenciado en Cs. Jurídicas y Sociales de la Universidad de Chile.

MISSION: / To contribute fraternity between cultures

There is no "all about me"...

Friend, nice, open mind and sincere. I love traveling and meeting people from all countries, cultures and races.

I grew up in Antofagasta (north of Chile) with my little brother and 6 cousins, so I am usually a very fatherly guy who is always concerned about the group. My family have Palestinian, Basque and Italian roots.

I am a Lawyer, Bachelor of Humanities and Social Sciences and Licenciate of Law at the University of Chile.

PHILOSOPHY

La vida es sólo un viaje de ida. No hay vuelta al pasado. Por lo mismo, no hay tiempo para arrepentirse, y vale la pena disfrutar cada momento como si fuese el último. Así, asume la muerte como la única posibilidad cierta.

- Sufrir depende de como enfrentes la vida. Así que hace algo para animarte!

- No es nuestro interior lo que nos define, sino nuestras acciones.

- Es permitido caerse, pero levantarse es una obligación.

-------------------------------------------------------

Life is just a one way trip. o return to the past. For this reason, there is no time to repent, and worth enjoying every moment as if it were your last. So, acept death as the only real possibility.

- Suffering depends on how one faces life. So do something to cheer up!

- It's not who we are underneath, but what we do defines us.

- You're allowed to fall, but you must get back up!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Creo que es sano y muy necesario en estos tiempos locos que las personas vuelvan a hablar y a conocerse entre ellas, sin importar las fronteras y las barreras entre los idiomas. Para mí, el proyecto CS es la síntesis de esto. Espero que las personas de CS puedan entender que lo más importante es el acercamiento e intercambio de experiencias con otra persona. La comunidad no es solo una forma de viajar sin pagar hospedaje.

Tengo amigos que he conocido en CS, quienes serán para toda la vida. CS es una comunidad que promueve el acercamiento entre la gente. Para mí, lo más interesante es la posibilidad que ofrece de conocer los lugares con una persona nativa. Eso es increíble y no hay precio.

-------------------------------------------------------

In these crazy and stressful times, I think more than ever it is an absolute necessity that people talk to each other again, regardless of borders and languages barriers. I feel that the CS project is the synthesis of all above. I hope people can understand that one of the most important things about CS is the approach and exchange of experiences with another person. The community is not only a way of traveling couches.

I have friends I've known in CS, who will be for life. CS is a community that promotes rapprochement between people. For me, the most interesting thing about it is the possibility that offers to meet native people from the places you are visiting. That is amazing and priceless.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Cree mi perfil en Noviembre del 2008, pero no me he involucrado mucho con la comunidad. Sin embargo, en el 2011 comencé a involucrarme más con CS y, sin duda alguna, cambió mi vida. He conocido a personas increíbles y muy interesantes, que han cambiando mi forma de ver el mundo. En el 2012 viví con tres muy buenos amigos en un piso compartido, y tuvimos muy buenas experiencias. Ahora vivo solo, pero la aventura por conocer continua =)

I created my profile in November 2008, but I haven't become very involved with the community. In 2011 however I began to get more involved with CS and certainly it changed my life. I've met very interesting people, that have changed my way of seeing the world. In 2012 I lived with three good friends in a shared floor and I had very good experiences. Now I live alone, but the adventure continues =)
