About Me

CURRENT MISSION

See the world!

ABOUT ME

Spaniard, living in the big city of NY. Went to school to study aviation, which fascinates me!
I work for an airline so I am trying to get to know the world.
I am open to most cultural activities and arts.

PHILOSOPHY

Trying to live day by day, even though it is much harder than everyone makes it sound!

I try to also take some influence from professionals... he is a quote from one of my favorite philosophers: "Opinion is the medium between knowledge and ignorance." Plato

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Trying to put the following together: discovering new places + meeting new people!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

just signed up!

Interests

Visiting new places, meeting people, concerts for new bands in small bars, independent music and films, art, innovative design and creative gin and tonics (haha)

Music, Movies & Books

Mostly Spanish books... currently reading "La ciudad de los prodigios"

Music really depends on the mood, mostly upbeat but will I do listen to classical music (Vivaldi my favorite) or good spanish guitar (Paco de Lucia), flamenco, jazz...
Current groups I am listening to: Two Door Cinema Club, Passion Pit, Empire of the sun, The naked and famous, Citizins, M83, Florence + the machines, Ratatat, Phoenix, Crystal Castles, Coldplay... open to suggestions!

For movies I prefer independent movies, if possible in french to practice :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Piloting is the most exciting activity I have done. On a road trip in Iceland I saw the most amazing nature sights, Hong Kong was the farthest I have traveled from Spain, and Mumbai was the longest I have been on an airplane (17hours and a few minutes).

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to navigate around many airports in the world ;)
Everyday day and every person can give you a learning experience.... sooooo I have and want to learn a lot!!
Share my passion for languages, good food (perhaps good cooking, it just depends on who you ask) and a fun time!

Countries I've Visited

Austria, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Greece, Iceland, India, Morocco, Netherlands, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In
