About Me

Having worked 5 years in multinational companies, now I decided to take a break and try something different - so I'm moving to Valencia for 6 months from February and will be doing volunteering at a school. I think this is just the right time for me to take a huge step ahead and not to look back.

Other than the above, I did my masters in HR and teaching (high school) - I'm kinda undecisive which career to follow. Any ideas how I can mix the two of them?

There are still certain things I wanna learn in my life: playing the piano and riding a horse are 2 things from my childhood that I have not managed to learn so far.

I love photography, especially when I have the opportunity to take photos of great moments, landscapes, views, something meaningful.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I don't have too many experiences so far, but looking forward to them. As I'm moving to a new place soon, I decided it was a great way to meet people. :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Granada sunset with a good friend from a viewpoint away from the tourists.
Manila karaoke with colleagues.
Barcelona small festival in the Olympics area.

The most amazing moments are coming together with the people I met there. Even a "regular" drinking night when nothing special happens on the surface can be amazing if you are with the right people in the right moment. Fortunately, there are many moments in my memories which are like that. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Being conscious is very important in all situations. You can live through the moment more deeply, when you are conscious about it, about yourself, about the world around, and about people.

I also think that everyone has time for everything which is really important to them so they WANT to dedicate time for something. "I don't have time" is just an excuse meaning "I don't want to do it so much as to dedicate time for this"
