About Me

Discovering Peru, and planning discover all the whole world 🌎! Breathing every moment :)

Traveler, open minded, funny guy with a big heart!

I try to enjoy every day, and every moment in the simple way, the small things.
I love to show my city to the people, my secret places in Lima an Barranco, with the best food and the best local experience ;) gift to the people epic memories about the moments we can share.

For me it’s posible to talk in Spanish and English, I love to met new people and learn about a new cultures!

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

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

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

Listen good music always will be a good option. ( Including a glass of wine, better.)

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

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

The life is only one, we need to enjoy it, with respect to the nature and thinking about others needs.
