About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I feel lucky I can travel and meet people from different cultures!

ABOUT ME

I consider myself a extremely curious person. I need to understand why things happen. I once saw a comic where a guy pushed a button and got a light electric shock; then the comic explained: most people would run away... Some would press it a second time to understand if that happens everytime. I would definitely push it again!

Traveling is the best way to meet people that shares a different vision of the world. And then you start wondering things and realize that the world is not black or white: it's a rainbow with so many colors!

PHILOSOPHY

LIVE and let live... Traveling helps you understand the world and realize we're not the center of it.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm being active at my local group, attending and organizing events. Sometimes at the mountains (trekking, mountain bike, stars seeing...) and sometimes at the city (sightseeing, museums...).

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I enjoy hosting, being hosted, meeting Cs friends in my city -and around the world- and finding new ones that visit Valencia...

Interests

Traveling and meeting people. Mountain activities: mountain bike, trekking, kayak... Sports Some kinds of theater

Music, Movies & Books

I like most kind of music! The books I like most are novels, specially the ones like Michael Crichton, or history novels (like Alexander the Great, my favorite historic character! I envy him, visiting the World's 7 Wonders!!!). I'm planning to write a book, feels like an interesting adventure! I hardly watch TV

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Descending through a rope into a just-discovered tomb in a restricted-area in Egypt... Reaching the sacred Ciudad Perdida after a four day treck in the Colombian jungle... Visting an old medieval monastery surrounded by myst in Caucasus mountains... The spiritual caved monk cells in the Azerbaijan desert... Jungle-trekking, chatting with a buddish monk and creating a small library for kids in Laos... Kayaking in Thailand when a whale emerged a few meters away... Staring the night sky in the middle of Massai Mara while taking a shower and suddenly earing a lion roar with no fence in between... Swimming with wild dolphins in Zanzibar... White Shark cage diving and meeting penguins in South Africa... Entering a mayan pyramid at Honduras... Kayaking at the Guatemala jungle... I could not choose just one. The world is so full of wonderful experiences!
