About Me


no mission, just let things happen


I like:
cooking for myself, cooking for my friends, cooking for everybody, my weekly soccer game, listening to people, to nibble the baguette in my way home, the little time I spend every morning in the coffee shop, sincerity, simplicity with a touch of complexity, beauty(mostly the non obvious one), going to the market a saturday morning, the Simpsons, stories where characters evolve, movies that catch my attention about everyday life without any need of shooting or killing or going to dangerous jungles( with the exception of submarine movies), good food, unexpected meetings in bars, unexpected meetings everywhere ... cooking, have I already said that?
I don't like:
people to whom you make a favour and they treat you as if they're making you a favour, to open some plastic bags, feeling stupid when I know I'm not stupid, computers, people having a lot of nerve and who is even proud of that, appearances( whenever there's nothing solid behind them), mediocrity that becomes fashionable...OK, maybe i'd better stop here!!


behaving in a way that lets me sleep well every night

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to show around people and give them the opportunity of having a glimpse of the real city where I live. This is also my main interest when travelling abroad; I very much appreciate the time I've shared with other CSers around the world.


I've met several couchsurfers in Ireland and Japan and I've had excellent experiences with all of them.


Traveling, traveling, traveling (everywhere) , food, food , food (stylish or not ), hanging out, discovering new bars & restaurants, live music, meet different people in different situations, sailing, cooking...
