About Me

CURRENT MISSION

LIVE my life!!!

ABOUT ME

Hace unos años me di cuenta que no queria tener la vida "estandard, tipica y normal", asi que deje mi trabajo, mi casa, agarre la mochila y me fui. Mi objetivo era claro: vivir. Y asi me fui a Sudamerica, donde empece mi nueva vida, viajando principalmente a dedo, siendo un nomada, recorriendo, disfrutando e interactuando con el mundo, ... por cuanto tiempo? quien sabe!! quizas toda la vida.
************************
A few years ago, I realized that I didn't want to have the "standard, typical and normal" live, so I gave up my job and my home, and with my backpack I went away. My target was to live!!! And so, I went to Southamerica, where I started living basically like nomade, travelling around the world, hitch-hiking, ... How long for?? All my life? Who knows....

PHILOSOPHY

No sueñes tu vida, vive tu sueño.
Nos complicamos la vida demasiado, tomando responsabilidades que nosotros mismos creamos. Todo es mas sencillo. El mundo seguira girando.
En la vida, las cosas buenas no cuestan dinero, y ademas, no son cosas.
Vive, y deja vivir.
******************
Don´t dream your life, live your dream.
Life is not so complicated as we do it. We put a lot of responsabilities over ourselves that are not important.
The good things can't be bought with money, and what it's funnier, they are not things.
Vive y deja vivir.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Lo mas importante, y quizas mas dificil, fue dar aquel primer paso y decir, "dejo todo y me voy". Y lo hice!!!! Deje el laburo, familia, amigos, ciudad, y me fui a conocer el mundo, Y A DISFRUTARLO.
Cosas "menos filosoficas" interesantes que he hecho, son aprender a volar en parapente, navegar sobre ballenas, caminar sobre un glaciar, asomarme al crater de un volcan activo y hacer el amor sobre la nieve del crater de otro volcan inactivo, acampar entre jabalies, estar haciendo dedo y subirme al coche de un narcotraficante (y alojarme en su casa), bañarme el uno de enero del 2008 en las aguas del rio Forth en Edimburgo, correr los encierros de San Fermin cada año (mas peligroso por la gente que por los toros), nadie me cree pero creo que estuve cerca de unos duendes...
**************************************
The most important thing of my life, and more difficult, was to say that i wanted to give up everything and go out... I made it!!!! I left my parents, my city, my friends, my work,... and I went to know the world and enjoy it!!!
And less philosophical things... for example, learn paragliding, sail over whales, walk on a glaciar, stay in the edge of the crater of an active volcano and have sex over the snow in the crater of another NO ACTIVE volcano, camp between wild-boars, be hitch-hiking and get in a narcotraficant's car (and stay at his home), swim on January 1st 2008 in the River Forth in Edinburgh, take part in the Running of the Bulls (every year, where people are more dangerous than bulls), nobody believes me but I think I was very close to some goblins...

Teach, Learn, Share

Supongo que podre enseñar algo, trabajé como profesor de Educación Física y diferentes actividades deportivas. Ahora trabajo con el tema del buceo. Y bueno, si quieres practicar español... (aunque si entiendes lo que acabo de escribir no creo que lo necesites).
***********
I suppose I could teach something, I´ve worked for some years in sports area, and last years in Diving area. Also if you wanna practise your Spanish, that´s easy for me.
