About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Saving money to go on exchange next January.

ABOUT ME

I am a very active person, always looking to learn more, live more, experience more. I do my best to live and enjoy every single moment. I believe that in life we have to make the most out of our abilities, opportunities and time, not just for a personal reward but for the well being of everyone.

At the moment I am studying International Businesses at Tec de Monterrey CEM. I am starting the 8th semester (out of ten) this August 2015. I really like my major, its fun and it has taught me a lot. I am looking forward to go on exchange to Australia next January.

Apart from studying I am also working for Oasis Group, a travel agency that offers very cool opportunities to travel around the world.

Even though sometimes is hard to find the time I still travel as much as I can. At least once every three months I travel to a different region in México, there is so much to see and experience in this beautiful country!

I believe I am openminded, relaxed and I know how to have fun, nevertheles I am always descent and respectful towards my friends, family and other people.

PHILOSOPHY

We only get one life, and we must live it to the fullest!

I don´t believe in luck, I believe that if you work hard enough life will smile to you but it´s not a coincidence. I think that it is our duty to help every other human been in their growth and development. I also believe that we can´t take life too serious and that our main objective must be to enjoy life at any time and place.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

When hosting I try to show the guests the way I live México. I want to show them how great México is; not only because of our traditions and food, but also our landscapes, our amazing people, our culture, our great potential, etc.

When surfing I am very much willing to experience culture, ideas, food, traditions, music, drinks, etc. from the place that I am visiting. I like meeting locals who are willing to show me their place (city, town), their lifestyle and who are willing to share opinions, experiences, ideals, etc.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have hosted 5 times at home and I have had very good times sharing stories, traveling, partying, etc. It is always a pleasure to have surfers that show interest in learning about the mexican culture, traditions, food, etc, and that are willing to share their adventures and culture.

In 2011 I stayed with some friends in Europe and it was a great experience because I was able to live the real life of each city and not just the tourist life. They knew which places to go, which restaurants to visit and which great things to do.

In 2013 my surfing experiences were in Canada and I had one of the best trips of my life so far. I met amazing people, they really made the difference from having a good time to having an awesome time.

In 2014 my surfing experience was in Milan, Italy. I had a great time with an amazing host that was so easy going and had so many great adventures to share about her travelling through many countries.

Interests

Photography, outdoor activities, travelling, listening to good music, meeting nice people, learning, scotch, eating delicious food, etc. I basically enjoy doing everything.

I am a collector of notes (bills) so I would really appreciate if you can bring me one or two from your country!

Music, Movies & Books

I like pretty much all kinds of music, there are good and bad songs in any gender, therefore I have a little bit of everything on my itunes, from classical music and oldies to reggaeton.

My goal is to read at least about 6 books a year, in 2015 I will try to read 10. But I don´t have any preferred type of books, the same as in music there is good and not so good in every type. However I try to read books that not only keep me entertained but that teach me something meaningful, e.g. Outliers, Move up, etc.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

When I was 12 I was swimming in the sea and I saw a massive turtle about a meter away from me! I swam, grabbed it and then the turtle pulled me down and throught the fishes for a few meters!

But there are so many other amazing moments of my life...

Teach, Learn, Share

Interacting with others to learn from them and allow them to learn from me by sharing experiences, knowledge, stories and life events.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Everything I have, since I believe nothing really belong to us and we are not the owner of things, we are just administrators.

Countries I've Visited

Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Indonesia, Italy, Netherlands, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, United States, Vatican City State

Countries I've Lived In

Mexico, United Kingdom, United States
