About Me

Discover east Europe. Currently working in Romania🌎

Hola! I am Joel from Peru and I grew up in Uruguay. Before Romania I was living in Somalia.
I love to travel as a local and discover and share new places and cultures. Meeting new and amazing people along the way, is the goal. Always ready to share a coffee and a good conversation with a big smile :)

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 sharing experiences and memories from the travels with others travelers on the way and have also, a good conversation about random topics.

For me, the life is for the living, and for this, we need to enjoy every day and continue learning about it. 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 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! 🌎

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

mmm Lived in a bunker, in a secret location in Somalia.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm really open with the information I have for traveling and I love to show my favorites spots in town. I know the difficulties when you had been in a new country with a different culture, different language and other mentality.
