About Me


2 Levitate, to create, and to ride as much as I can.


I PREFER to be called Juan Ma or Juan Manuel, not "Juan".

I Like COFFEE and motorbikes.

Like to talk, love a good conversation. I'm very much into learning things.

Do like simple things, or also things and situations that are simple.

I love Nature, Old things, Old Wood, Nice Smells, Good Food. Water, Mountains. The Sea.

I´ve lived in Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Latvia and Mexico.

Was involved for more than 15 years in intercultural education, volunteering programs, NGO's and development. It gave me good experiences with people from other countries and cultures.

Currently I trade with Guatemalan handcrafts.

My big goal in life is to feel happy and grateful every single day for the things I experiences and the people I meet. It is a goal, not a constant reality.

I like hardworking and creativity. Art, almost any kind of expression I get amaze by trying to find out what it is about.

I don´t like bad comments if they are not constructive. I like when people get together in order to make things happen.

I really try not to judge others. If the critic is not constructive, better not to do it, better not to hear it.


SMILE! Be Nice, Create, Don´t destroy, DON´T KILL. Express, feel. I feel attraction to buddhism and share with the little I know of it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
