To travel the world and the seven seas
I love to travel, and I have been in quite a few places all alone by myself, getting to meet new people from scratch. But I am still a simple guy: for bad and good I will always be a kid of Southern Madrid (Spain), and all that it means: working class pride, no room for innecesary dramas, disrespect for authority, power and money, and never too tired or scared to try something stupid, funny and exciting.
Let´s be cryptic here: rather be forgotten than remembered for giving in.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I will get in touch with people and help them know better that places that they want to see.
No CS per se, but I did my share of NGO workcamps in Germany and southern Spain in summer when I was in college, so I know what is to camp or sleep in the ground with people you don´t know.
When I was still a teenager I tried to be a gig promoter and convinced my parents to allow some germans and american hardcore bands to sleep at home. Tattoed people can be very nice even if you cannot pay their gas!
Got back the favor a couple of times in Belgium and Germany.
Music, basketball, food&drinks (let´s cook together and prepare some cocktails), politics(another world is possible), literature, tv shows (movies are so 20th century!!!)
- rock climbing

Books: Freedom (Jonathan Franzen), Tough Guys Don´t Dance (Norman Mailer), A Confederacy of Duces (John Kennedy Toole), Catch 22 (Joseph Heller), Slaughterhouse 5 (Kurt Vonnegut)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Climbing a volcano in Chile, help miners in their work in Bolivia and have cookies and tea with a moroccan family in their house south of Casablanca.
Teach, Learn, Share
I guess I could teach some spanish cooking and if you have teenage kids I can teach them some basketball or basic guitar.
I could learn to play drums, make a collage with newspaper pictures and watercolors (I have some recent obsession about DYI crappy art), make good cocktails and play hurling or any other weird sport!
I share everything I have, don´t even say thank you, just enjoy it.
