About Me


To rid mondays of my life


I like laughing and talking, to listening stories from people I met. I'm always open to experience new adventures but I try to enjoy this quiet moments that life gives to humans ("you never now when you will have the opportunity to rest again" :-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sometimes I'm abroad for working, I'm affraid you wont find me in Burgos. I'm very busy with work and leisures offten, then I'm gonna be happy to share with you a drink, a coffe or just a walk in Burgos. The rest of time , my house is your house.


Since 2004 my sister opened the family house to "hospitality club" then Ruiz's family got into it. After that, Aude, the woman I lived with for a while got into CS and we open the house we share in Madrid to Couchsurfers. We had very good time with them: we went to concerts, we introduced them some of our friends, we cooked together, we went out: the usual things I use to do with friends you fell confortable :-)
