There is a bigger fish to fry than the one called personal ambitions!
I believe I am a experience collector. I am a very active person, always looking to learn more, live more, experience more, do more. Every day I do my best to live and enjoy every single moment wether I am studying, working, traveling, reading, etc. 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 and development of everyone and everything in this world.
I am currently studying International Businesses at Tec de Monterrey CEM. I am starting my 9th semester (out of ten) this August 2016. I really like my major because instead of making me a specialist in just one topic it has taught me just the basics of s lot of different things and that has awaken my curiosity to explore more areas of knowledge. I am also working for one of the biggest companies in the world, it is a pretty cool Dutch-British company and most likely you have used one or more of our products.
Even though sometimes is hard to find the time I still travel as much as I can, at least once every 4 months, and host guests as much as possible.
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.
We only get one life, and we must live it to the fullest and do the best we can to leave this world in better conditions than the ones we found.
I don´t really believe in luck, I believe that if you work hard enough life will smile to you but it´s not a coincidence, it is a result of your effort. But most importantly I believe that we shouldn't take life too seriously and that our main objective must be to enjoy our time, at any time and place.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am in CS because it is the best way to travel if you really want to experience the place that you are visiting. I truly believe that we don't own any of the stuff that we have, I believe that we are just administrators and we must share what we have.
When hosting I try to show the guests the way I live México, my uni, my home town, my Friends, etc. 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, family, 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 life, opinions, experiences, ideals, etc.
I have hosted 6 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.
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, and 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. I am proud and love Mexican music!
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.
I like to learn new things and to challenge my believes and ideas, if I am wrong is great because that means that I have learnt something new.
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.
