About Me

CURRENT MISSION

living a simple life

ABOUT ME

I'm from Girona, but I lived in Barcelona over 10 years. I'm catalan. I like eastern-europe countries, specially Balkan, specially Srbija. I don't know why, so please don't ask me why

I like words in all their shapes and colours. In language, in literature, in music, in the mouth of other people. I love the words. I write too much, all the time

I'm usually quiet, I don't like to have to do the things quickly, just relax and take it easy, please.. I love to go for a coffee with friends, I always have time for it

I'm very lucky, because I love the life that I have

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

For now, helping with the translation of the site into Catalan..

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Some..
When I host someone I like to spend time with him/her, and the same when someone hosts me

Interests

Literature, movies, music, languages, history, geography, astronomy.... this seems very general, but the true is that i have loads of curiosity and i'm always changing interests. In this specific moment, i follow an on-line course of music (highly recommended, by the way, check it in Open yale courses), another of global history, i go to classes of romanian literature from XIX century, and i watch classic movies when i have time (last one: gone with the wind)

Music, Movies & Books

Films: Trainspotting, Underground, Amelie, BigFish, Life of Brian, Memento, Beauty&Beast..
Music: Ska, Metal, Pop, everything (System of a Down, Extremoduro, Yann Tiersen, Gogol Bordello, Antònia Font, Mendetz, Mozart, Albert Pla, ..)
Books: The Perfum, Irving Welsh, Bukowsky, Bontempelli, Ivo Andric, Jaroslav Hasek, Karel Capek, Aleksandar Hemon, Navokov, Dovlatov, Herbert, Kadare,.... Platonov and his great book: Chevengur!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Once I had to explain to a man that it was not possible to go from Russia to New York by foot.
In my 25th birthday, a dead bird felt in front of me. I still don't know what does it mean.

Teach, Learn, Share
