Hey! I'm Hugo! I have been in CS from the very beginning and through the years I had wonderful experiences here, met awesome people at home or while visiting other places. I am a calm and easy-going person who loves travelling over all. I have been working in the hotel industry from 2009, worked as a hotel GM in Barcelona for the last 4 years of my career and then, in 2021, I decided to make my dream true and travel around the World.
Years ago, I also graduated as IT engineer at the University but never really liked it.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I have been part of this idea for many years, when we were just a few CouchSurfers. The community grew a lot quickly and then went down, kind of loosing the original spirit.
I try to keep it the same way it was at the beginning, helping fellow travelers, hosting always that I can and sharing my experiences with those I am lucky to meet during my trips.
Hosting and been hosted have always been cool experiences. CS is a great way to meet up great people from all over the world.
I find it specially convenient when you are solo traveling, you can hang out with people who know the place, the language...
My main interest is traveling. I am always willing to hear stories about people who live in another countries or those who have been travelling in countries I would love to visit.
I also love reading, sunny days, hiking, grilling food :), trying local foods, views from balconies, beer, photography, rollerblading, riding bicycles, nature, animals... and I love CATS!
