About Me


just be happy :)


what can I say? I'm a romantic literature freak... thus the sunrise mission :) I'm also a devoted teacher :P a daydreamer... a good tour guide, as I've been told. I tend to have crazy ideas, dragging people to the tops of mountains in the winter to see sunrises and hiking for 2 hours just to get the best view of the place. Nothing worthwhile is ever easy. All in all I'm a friendly, open, easy-going person. Love to meet different people, have new experiences.


"Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.)" -Walt Whitman
the complexity of it all and the perfect composition is overwhelming, I mean everything around us, within us...
making someone smile is like fitting one piece of the puzzle with another, take pride and joy in even the smallest achievements, these make up the enigma of our life :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been fortunate enough to have many great experiences with couchsurfing, meeting amazing people who showed me incredible places. I can offer you a couch and a "guided visit" around Granada :)


I've met the coolest people... different people... But everyone, in their own way, with a mission to build a more tolerant, open world. I love it!


Literature, as mentioned :) mostly English and American but also Spanish and Polish
sports like skiing, hiking, anything to do with mountains :) and water... love swimming and am currently planning to start learning to windsurf :)

Music, Movies, and Books

movies and books - too many to mention...
dark humor like Monty Python
comedies, horror films, fantasy (medieval) Tolkien fan :) can't leave out the world classics of romance and drama.... poetry, Shakespeare, Whitman...
actually my favorite book is probably The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas :)
music - I'm into everything, a big mix of reggae, rap, house, hip-hop, trance and traditional spanish flamenco...addd to that a sad note of the portuguese fado and you're set :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

sit on the banks of a river and watch the night sky and all the stars disappear and turn into a bleak day, as a fog rose over the river and surrounded us...

swam in crystal clear water in the moonlight and under the stars

see tears turn into a small smile :) nothing more beautiful in the world

Teach, Learn, Share

I'll be your personal guide around Granada,
show you some good places to have tapas, dance salsa or listen to some jazz-reggae mixes
I won't be able to teach you salsa,(I improvise) but I know a place :P
I could teach you some spanish, english, polish :)
or if you're up for a discussion on literature :)
