Join Couchsurfing to see Jorge’s full profile. It’s free!
Hello, my name is Jorge Jaramillo and I'm 27 years old, I'm really interested in traveling arounf the world and so far, I'vs been to over 20 countries, mostly in Latin America and Europe.
I am really looking forward to know the way people live in the places I visit.
I'm respectful and honest, I consider myself a pretty easy-going person, I enjoy good conversations and I also love to learn different perspectives from people I meet.
My hobbies include cooking, swimming, hiking, nordic walking, trekking, going to natural resevoirs and any nature-related activities.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm currently travelling around California and I would like to meet awesome people and get to know their habits and way of living.
I also don't have a lot of money to spend in hotels or hostels so I would really appreciate to be accepted in someone's house.
I'm looking forward to learn as much as possible from every single person I cross paths with.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I lived in Israel for 10 months, were I was volunteering in a Kibbutz collecting apples and also working in the town's zoo feeding the animals, the funniest part of it was working at the snake's house, where I had to feed them with mice and the bigger ones with rabbits.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm really good at math, physics, algebra, geometry and chemistry. I'm a civil engineer so I can teach anyone that needs help in those topics.
Also I love cooking, I try to learn recipes from every place I visit, so I can make pretty good meals for the hosts if they're willing to try something different.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Stories, cooking recipes, different point of views, but specially and most importantly, a smile and a great will to make their day better.
