About Me

Discover east Europe. Currently working in Romania🌎

Hola! I am Joel from Peru. I love to travel as a local and discover and share new places and cultures. And meeting new and amazing people along the way.

Always ready to share a coffee and a good conversation.

In Lima, I loved to show my city to the people and my favorites spots. I can share the places with the best food and the best local experience.

I lived in Barranco, close to the malecon, close to the sea. :)

Now I living in Bucharest in Piata Romana, my favorite area of the city.

For me, it’s possible to talk in Spanish, Portuguese, and English.

I can cook peruvian food if you want, or maybe you prefer a pisco sour?

I like to share experiences and memories from the travels with others travelers, and have also, a good conversation about random topics.

I love to dance and be part of small live concerts.

Hikings, mountain bike, kayak and visit Museums, are my favorites activities.

For me, the life is the best gift we have, and for this, we need to enjoy every day and continue learning about it. The life is for the living.

The world will be a better place to live, when we can understand the important about sharing, to make community, and help the people in need.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate in meetings , for hang out in the city or receiving in my house travelers.


I have many memories and histories with couchsurfers. Sometimes for a while and other for a long time, and making good connections and having friends for the entire life.

I met spectacular people in many countries and cities! Couchsurfing is a good way to have an incredible journey with the local people, in the local way! 🌎


I love sports in general, cook when I have time, read a good book, and learn from the people. I love to play the guitar and dance :) Count with me in hikings, kayaking, mountain bike, visit museums and small coffee shops.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm really open with the information I have for traveling. I know the difficulties when you had been in a new country with different culture, different language and other mentality.
But, you can survive and have fun! And enjoying all the moments! For this, I try to help others to enjoy their journey in Lima or traveling together. Because, the local always have the best information of the city.
