About Me

Aquel que entendio el sentido de la vida no se apura y tampoco se preocupa

Wer den Sinn des Lebens verstanden hat, der beeilt sich nicht und macht sich keine Sorgen!

Who the sense of life understood, never hurries nor worries,

After living for one year in Germany and getting in touch with CS and Couchsurfers I decided to keep doing it, it does not matter where I am. I also realized it is about helping someone that is out there, maybe in a strange city, country, or continent. Making feel the Couchsurfers in contact with the place they are and the people they are with it's one of the best things we can do as CS.

Until now I am really thankful to all of those that I've met and even more the ones that have trusted me and showed me a bit or a lot about their lives, homes, and cities!

I realized after living in Playa del Carmen, Mexico for three months how much I enjoy meeting new people from different places and how much fun you can have with someone you have just meet!

Why are you here? Are you afraid of death? Do you make yourself happy?

If we ask ourselves those questions, then our life can change! That is why we gotta enjoy what we are doing or just do what we enjoy, happiness and life are really easy, but we do complicate them sometimes!

We need nothing to be happy but ourselves and some passion for something, something in our mind that wants to make a better person of us, so simple so easy! That is what I am doing here, just a guy that is enjoying everywhere he goes and is somehow laughing or at least smiling 99 percent of the time, in the end, complaining about the situation does not make it better! We receive what we give, and we give what we think.

If you wanna meet a really weird Mexican guy I would really like to talk with you, expend time with you, and just met you, but please let us avoid small talk, we can leave it for the end of the conversation!

Literally, CouchSurfing already changed my life, I met some people thanks to CS that changed my life, and thanks to them and CS I am right now where I am willing to help and keep contributing to the community!

I have no plan so it is not possible for me to accept your request if it is for the next month, please do not send that kind of request! Three-four days before is ok, even one day or the same day is ok!

I prefer to host solo travelers or people that are really interested in talking and sharing something, I avoid being with persons that are looking at their phones the whole time so If you are one of them please do not send a request!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Well, I must be honest, I understood the meaning of Couchsurfing after surfing some coaches, but it took a bit of time, it was not right away! I was surprised how nice and kind some people are and how easy they let you get in in their places as they would have known you for a lot of years. It is a really really good experience I can recommend, but please don't do it if you are not able to really contribute to the situation and to just enjoy your stay where you are!

Interests

I studied mechatronics engineering because I love technology and I'm the kind of person that when something is broken, needs to know why it is broken and try to repair it, but my curiosity doesn't end there, I'm not just curious about machines and things like that, that's why I really enjoy meeting new people and listening to stories I would have never thought I would hear, meeting people I thought I would never meet and realizing how small our planet is and how big and wonderful can a coincidence be.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Enjoy every little moment you can not repeat!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can show you how a Mexican sees his own country, culture, and traditions. Will also tell you about our food and the fact that we eat almost everything with chili, but don't worry, that doesn't mean that it's spicy! We can cook together if you want and be ready because I will encourage you to visit Mexico more than once!

What I Can Share with Hosts

A really nice period of time and some interesting talks about whatever we are in the mood to talk about!
