About Me


Difficult to describe oneself in few words... probably references from my friends would give you a pretty good general idea about me :)

I consider myself one of those optimistic ones.... I think that live is a full experience when enjoying each moment, thinking and feeling positive, and seeing the good things of each situation, even when it's a hard job I try my best to keep my mind focused in this perspective.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I met the group and many events in Salamanca , and since then I started to know more about the project... I´ve known diferent kinds of people, always plenty of energy and lots of experiences to share :)
By now, I cannot even imagine another way to travel, but sharing the experience with the people I find in the trip, getting involved in the culture and the people that actually make a place interesting.


Art is my passion, one of the most important things in my life.
I love making sport too, but usually prefer this kind that gives you a time for yourself, finding armony with your mind while practising it. Yoga and swimming are the best for me :)
I've grown in the north of Spain, (mountains, forests, plenty of nature...) so I love hilkwalking or any other way of contact with nature.
I also love reading anything that falls in my hands.
My last discovery has been soap making! DIY is one of my filosophys and since I've discovered how to wriggle industrial cosmetics I'm into a great investigation about :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Is difficult to say... too many! haha
I'm a big fan of Sci-Fi, and some of my favorite writers are Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke and Douglas Adams.
About music... I like listening different kinds, it deppends the moment and the situation. Latin jazz, anyway, have a place in my heart :P

Teach, Learn, Share

How I tell, my passion is any kind of art, so I always try to share that with anyone (some people say that they cannot draw, but I think that everybody can take a pencil and enjoy it!
Of course, I can teach spanish too :)
