About Me

I'm a humble guy, I think, shy maybe, home-living.. I have few friends but it doesn't mean I'm not able to socialize easily, that's why I love travelling, because force you to interact with people out from your "mother" environment. Wich is rewarding because you can learn at the same time that you are giving something to people. I like pets (specially cats), and I've joined to hiking groups in the cities where I've lived.

Me considero una persona sencilla, algo timido tal vez, hogareño, de pocos amigos pero sin problemas de socializar, tal vez por eso me gusta viajar porque te obliga a interactuar con otras personas fuera de tu ambiente "materno", lo cual es enriquecedor porque puedes aprender a la par de brindar algo de ti a las demas personas. Me gustan las mascotas (en especial los gatos), pertenezco a un grupo de caminantes ecológicos.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to travel, and experience the whole world with the support from the nice people who have the disposition to give you guidance and stay. My idea is also to reward giving advice and support to the foreigners and travellers in general.

Quiero viajar y conocer el mundo entero con la colaboración de las agradables personas que tienen la disposición de brindarte orientación y hospedaje. La idea es también retribuir también ofreciendo la orientación a los foráneos.

Music, Movies, and Books

"Under Tuscan Sun", cause this film I'd like to go to the Tuscany

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been to the Amazon three times, and I've been to Africa another three times too. Everyone of these experiences was unique.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can help you to learn Spanish, don't worry about your speaking level, I'll support you cause I understand the process to learn a second language.

I want all the adventurous people and backpackers to be my mentors about travelling.

I'm not a good cook, but I can help you with the washing-up and the clean-up.
