About Me

Like most couchsurfers I'm an open and laid back person, that has many interests and I am always curious to learn and see more. I love to travel in an independent and adventurous way and getting to know and experiencing the real side of the places and people I visit. I've learned to be not too fond of commercial tourism and tours that try to sell you an experience that is fake and created only for the sake of tourism, from my personal experience the best things are the ones you have to discover and they don't cost the world.
I love couchsurfing, because you can get to the best places in and around town, get to know locals, hang out with people that you maybe normally wouldn't and can learn and see a lot of new things. It's more than a way to save money and if you bring time and an open-mindedness you can make amazing experiences.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have profited largely from the comunity traveling and would like to keep travelling with couchsurfing and give back eventually. Due to my living situation and busy schedule it is difficult to offer a good couch at the moment, but we could hang out and maybe also work something out if you need a place to stay.


Have been couchsurfing a lot in Chile and Argentina, as well as travelled and met many couchsurfers and have had some amazing experiences.
