About Me


Meeting people from all over the world


I'm Juan. I'm a 34 year old gay guy from Madrid. I'm fun and outgoing. I would like to explore other parts of the world that I haven't seen before. I love big cities, nightlife, coffee, movies, music and talking. I'm here to meet other couchsufers, share experiences and establish connections with all kinds of travelers. I will gladly also show you my beautiful city and make you feel as a local ;)


“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I live in the North side of Madrid, Spain. I can offer a tiny couch during the weekends and go out, grab drinks and sightseeing the city with couchsurfers visiting Madrid. I like to travel quite a bit so new places are always the best opportunity to establish long term friendships around the world!
