About Me

I'd say I'm rather outgoing, friendly and talkative. I'm Mediterranean; we don't do silence ;) I like spending free time with friends, having some beers and chatting over all sorts of topics. Always smiling! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because it's amazing! I've met wonderful people on here and learnt tons about the world!


I'm interested in languages, literatures, history, anthropology, psychology: culture in general. I also have an interest for indigenous and minority communities. I love travelling and meeting people from every corner of this little world.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm into Blaumut, Joan Dausa i els tipus d'interes, Cesk Freixas, Manel, Pau Vallve, Mishima, La Pegatina, La Troba Kung-Fu... Very recommendable Catalan music :)

Recently I've discovered Welsh folk and pop-rock (9Bach, Swnami, Gwyneth Glyn, Calan...) and I'm into Polish inddie as well (Mela Koteluk, Monika Brodka, Ania Dabrowska, etc.). I'm always keen to discover music from any place and in any language :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teaching, learning, living abroad, travelling and getting stranded in different places, meeting people, making random decisions... Life is pretty amazing if you take it seriously :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm quite skilful in languages and I'm always open to learn more languages and teach those I speak. I also have the ability to bring any conversation into the linguistic field. I believe that you get to know people better through the language they speak.

I can also teach you why "Catalonia is not Spain": toros and flamenco are as foreign to me as they might be to most of you :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I enjoy cooking very much and I'm always happy to share Catalan cusine with anyone interested in learning some new recipes! :)
