About Me

**I can't host you if you didn't get your COVID shots / No te puedo hospedar si no te has vacunado contra covid**

Most of the time I appreciate most of the people, because despite all the bad news around us this is a pretty sweet planet to inhabit. Beats all other options in the Solar System anyways. Well, except for Saturn (it's got rings man!).

Over time I've come to realize that there are a few different ways by which you can live many lives: travelling, reading books, meeting interesting individuals. So I want to do all those things as much as possible.

I'm a big fan of Music. And Laughter. And Nature. And Science. And History. And Beer. If you can relate to any of this, I'd definitely like to hang out, host or be hosted by you.

PEACE OUT THERE.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Mostly because it's based in an old fashioned, almost extinct concept: trust. Living in an environment where everything revolves around money it's great to see so many people sharing experiences just for the sheer joy of it. Kinda utopic really.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Realizing that the human species is just a minute speck of dust compared to the mind-boggling, awe-inspiring, humbling scale of the universe. Nothing more, but nothing less. Therefore even if our self-destruction or continued existence is utterly meaningless from a cosmic standpoint, we owe it to ourselves as rational beings to get better at figuring "this" out.

In the same vein, the 5 days I spent in the Amazon jungle left me speechless.

Oh, and skydiving.

Teach, Learn, Share

My full-time job is teaching Spanish as a second language. So if you interested in brushing up on the basics I can help you with that. Also would be thrilled to learn pretty much any language.

Tasty food recipes are welcome as well.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Respect for their space and attention to tidiness. Plus willingness to try new experiences and a genuine interest to learn about and embrace the local atmosphere. Also hours upon hours of potential conversations, preferably alongside a nice cold drink.

Countries I’ve Visited

Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Peru, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In
