About Me

IWA-AIT Workers always welcome!!

Currently living in Cambre, outskirts of A Coruña.

ABOUT ME
Working class person with a crazy job in the film industry, which makes me work several hours or not hours at all, depending on the season of the year. In my free time I love go to the mountain with my trail cameras or my overland 4x4. I know the very best routes in all the nort of Spain. Feel free to ask me for awesome spots in the middle of the wildlife anywhere in the North.

IF YOU WANNA MEET UP
Please note that I might work several hours so my agenda will not be as free as yours. Depending on our availability, I can show you the best spots in Coruña or surronding area and tell you unbelievable stories that will make you laught so bad - Otherwise, I'll pay the round. Hit me up too if you are looking for a vegan guide who knows every single bar with vegan options in the city.

IF YOU REQUEST TO STAY WITH ME:
Please note I'm living in Cambre, which is a calm town next to A Coruña. There are buses to the city center every 15/30/60 min, depending on the weekday.

I'll host everybody I can. However, as long as I'm not a NGO and I'd like to be sure you have read my profile and check out if we have something in common, could you please let me know why did you choose me instead of another couchsurfer? Of course it's not mandatory but you know, I'll be more comfortable if I see why you think we might have a nice time together.

Also, please note that I'm living with my 20yo cousing in a 2 bedroom apartment, so right now I can only offer you a comfortable couch and some camping beds.

PREFERENCES
No authoritarian actitudes supported. This house is for working class people. LGTB friendly, antifa friendly, vegan friendly, pet friendly and even kid friendly. Cops, military people, hunters or prostitution clients are totally NOT allowed.

Also, I'm not interesting in flirting at all, doesn't matter who or what you are. Please keep it clear before you request to stay or accept me as a guest.

Btw, I'm a lot of things, inclued vegan and anarchist activist.

PHILOSOPHY

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

As everybody who fights day after day, I usually loose and cannot stop situations of unjustice. However, as everybody who fights day after day, there is any victory from time to time. Those are the most amazing things I've been part of.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a storyteller, so I can share with you really nice stories =) Also, I can show you the best places in Galicia and surrounding provinces in here :D And when I mean the best places I do really mean THE BEST - filmmakers know so many secret spots because we film in really beautiful secret spots. If you like photography and video, journalism or music, this is my profesion so I can be helpful if you need it!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Everything on my hand will be offered!!

My home is not in the center of Coruña, but there is a bus that can be there in 20 minutes. The good point is that I'm located a very quiet place!!

I've moved here two months ago and right now I only have an acceptable medium size couch, and many camping beds and stuff. However, depending on your dates, I can offer you too a double bed.

If you are just looking for tips about wildlife or nature in A Coruña, Galicia or the nort of Spain, I'm definatelly your guy.
