About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Accumulating experiences

ABOUT ME

From Barcelona, I am a Catalan (don't consider myself as a Spaniard).

After several years working, I decided back to study choosing an open university. At the beginning I combined studies and work but soon I stopped the "work for money" and during the last 3 years I am investing my life on achieve my degree while traveling... Now finishing my saves, by the way :p

NOW: this summer I toke the bike in Barcelona and headed north. After 2.600 km I've reached Paris and now I'm dreaming on Amsterdam.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

For me CS is useful to meet new people. Sometimes spending a while together, sometimes gaining a friendship.

Honestly, when traveling I am used to sleep in hostels more than CS, but this site is great in order to know locals :-) To host, I expect to have soon my own place but it's long time that I am "homeless".

Interests

Traveling became not my hobby but my life style!

I love to do photos. This is a great way to remember some of my experiences abroad.

I like languages. During my time in the Basque Country (3 years) I learned Euskara. During my Erasmus in Portugal (9 months) I tried to learn some Portuguese.

As a non-interest I can say I am proud being from Barcelona and I support Barça, but football is not my passion; therefore, you always will know more than me about this ;-)

Music, Movies & Books

I will share only one from each field:
BOOK: La plaça del Diamant, written by Mercè Rodoreda.
FILM: Pa negre, directed by Agustí­ Villaronga.
MUSIC: Inadaptats.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I enjoyed and suffered on 2012 September 11th demonstration in my country. It whas really amazing; festive atmosphere but excessively crowdy. It was also amazing to see the new by the press: "1.5 million people claiming freedom for Catalonia in Barcelona" and the images token from the air.

I keep on mind that day when, in the Western Sahara, alone, I left the main way near Smara deeping in the desert. It wasn't any road, any milestone, any reference, any building or person, only a stony and sandy ground and a very hot weather. After one hour driving stright in this scenarious (actually I did only few km because my car's speed in that ground was very poor) I decided to go back... but when I turned I only saw the same desertic horizon in all directions. Which was the fucking way to find the road!? For people who know the land would be easy but at that time I understood how unconscious I am.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am not very good on something special but I truly wish you can find on me something enriching.

If you wanna help me just be patient with my bad English :p
