About Me


Travel around the world, meeting new people, having fun new experiences. Something new and crazy always happens to me, don't know why....


I'm an happy and friendly person (at least others are telling me this ;) ) and really love to travel and meet new peoples all around the world, find about other cultures and learn new things. I use to travel alone (I believe it is very hard to find someone with your exact same interests, time and willingness to travel).


should I have one? I just take everything a it is ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I'm home (I try to be here the less that I can, traveling is much better) I can host you to my place... you're welcome. I'm mostly not at home, but it will not cost you anything to send me a request. I usually answer in a couple of days, if it's more I might be up on a mountain or dead ;)


Months ago I met a girl (on my friends here on CS) and she was telling me how fun is traveling with CS, and meeting new people.
I love to travel and to meet new people so... why don't give it a try?
My mistake was to give it a try ;)
Everyone I meet here is an awesome person, and yeah... it's addictive...


I love climbing and other extreme sports.
Tried kitesurfing but got bored.
Parachuting for a while, it's awesome, but damn expensive, I prefer to invest my money on travels.
I want to bungee so hard, I'll do it as soon as I stumble on a place where they do it, without thinking twice...

I love learning languages and meet new people., they fit perfect together actually. I hate studying languages in a conventional sense. I just learn few words, go out and use them, put me in akward situations, learn few more words, rinse and repeat.

I really love to share experiences, I'm always amazed to realized how much you learn from other's mistakes and successful stories.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love rock music, but I can listen from everything... Almost everything to be honest ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

mmm climbing... parachuting... scubadiving... I'd love to learn how to sail, I'll definitely do that this summer... (I said so the last 6 years ;) )

Teach, Learn, Share

I really would love to learn to sail. What can I teach, I'm not an expert in any of the things I've done, but for sure can teach (and would love to teach it) climbing
