About Me

CURRENT MISSION : traveling for a year.

Started in May 2015 flying to San Francisco. Western US for a month: Yosemite, Death Valley N.M., Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Zion, Bryce, Arches, Teton, Yellowstone, Glacier, Bend (Oregon), San Francisco, Reno, Fullerton.

Next: México, Cuba, Guatemala.

Goal: discover how the world works, the nature, people, food, and culture.


Can't know "everything about me", we should meet if you want to know.

I enjoy doing new things, being at the nature, travelling, meeting people.
Specially meeting people, learning, discovering.
Dancing, moving, the sea.
Movies, music, singing.
Cooking, enjoying food.

I've been teaching to pay atention to the body by the Grinberg Method.
I've been working as a science teacher for teenagers as well.


I'd like to make a better world, if possible.
Better choice (to move and change things) than complaining constantly.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


CS Meetings and groups, summer camps, and hosting in Barcelona.

Hiking, concerts, cinema, ...

Showing my city to surfers.


I was introduced by a friend to a CS hiking. I loved the people, spirit, the project and this new possibility, so I joined.
Since then, not disapointed,

- Hiking meetings: Torrent de la Cabana, Gr-92 from Begur to Palamós, Via Ferrata: Regina and La Feixa del Colom, La Mola, ...
- Cinema, Sailing, Music, ... Barcelona Cs meetings
- And more (I've stopped counting).

Made new friends and met awesome people!
