About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Viajar, conocer nuevas personas, nuevas culturas, mejorar cada dia

ABOUT ME

Well, I am always thinking about everything, sometimes surprised, sometimes dreaming,(so analytical for myself), I need to be in movement all time, fortunately for me my job needs that I travels a lot, so I usually meet new people and places, that's why Im in chile right now...

Plans that I enjoy, walking, riding bicycle, reading, climbing, swimming, snorkeling, learning how to dance... (is a short time objetive, during many years!), many plans and many more away from my thoughts that I will do for sure.

PHILOSOPHY

I'm not religious, I analyze my enviroment and relations slowly trying to get the best interpretation and trying to do the best and accomplish my objectives.
One fundamental thing for me is understanding myself mixing my internal experiences with the external experiences. Is like a life game experiments :).

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have been in some events, like hiking in Bogotá mountains. I met a guy in Venezuela virtually (never met him in person) but he assisted me through free phones during some days, I got many answers from locals and surfers, I attended salsa clases in Bogotá and in Santiago, and recently a camping.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It's fantastic to get involved in a culture of people who wants to share good energy and travels while enjoys the life. I found this site safe, and very helpful to meet these people, It's so valuable, I really like CS experience!

Interests

My short-medium landscape is like Patagonia, Cordillera de los Andes, Region de los lagos, Desierto de Atacama, doing mountaineering, climbing, bicycling.

Having partys, meeting new peopple, being learning every day new things.

Music, Movies & Books

Soundtracks, Spanish Rock, The police, Sting, Bajofondo, Cafe tacvba, Hombres G, Enya, Gypsi Kings, Santana...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was taking my first travel out of Colombia in UK, I arrived a sunday to Llantrisant and I forgot to change more dollars by Pounds, so when I was at the hotel they told me "sorry, we don't accept US Dollars" ohhh was terrible because I didn't have any idea of what to do, where to sleep, what to eat!!! fortunately, after half hour the manager realized my situation and he approved a room until monday.
About 4 years ago, me and four friends went to Villa de Leyva, SFF Iguaque to a mountain that usually no body visit, there is no water, is a difficult mountain for walk, but we did still walking. After a 4 hours we found in the middle of a military camp that initially we didn't know who kind of military forces they were, was good to know they were the good guys and they were there becuase the president was in the town.

I want to learn English and dance Salsa, I'm a pretty bad dancer!
