About Me


Enjoying life in beautiful Barcelona! Beach Volley, Lindy Hop & socializing!


- I like to socialize a lot. I like to talk to people and listen to their stories, lifes, and their pursue for happiness. My favourite topics are history, geo-politics, series, learning about everything that will help understand reality.
- I don't like to watch sports much on tv but I love practice them. I go very often to play beach volley and dance lindy hop, going with the bicycle...
- I like meeting people from all around the world.
- I don't drink alcohol, because it's useless to me, I only get sleppy, I am funny enough the way I am, jaja., I don't smoke, I don't do drugs, but you can of course drink with moderation if you are hosted in my place.


- Be optimistic with a bit of cautious.
- A professor told me once a nice one: "The moment we start to disagree is the moment where we start learning"
- If life gives you lemons, make lemonade!!
- Act with intelligence always

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


- I was the organizer of the Saturday Language Exchange in Barcelona for 2 years, but i had to stop to take a bit of a rest, hehe
- Barcelona is crazy with many events, language exchange, pub crawl, going to festivals, I went to many of those, but now I go only from time to time.
- I went also to many couchsurfing camps: Paris Rendezvous, Saint Petersburg White nights, Cracovia, Ukraine, new year's eve in Prague and Sofia, and many others
- I have hosted some people from Germany, Poland, latvia, US.
- Also I met nice friends for coffee while in Denmark!


- Cycling is really nice. Once I started going with my bike everywhere in Barcelona and now I think is wonderful!! You can go everywhere and you do sport so you feel more energetic to do more stuff!
- Reading!! I like historical novels and fantasy, but I read everything. According to my mum I started at 6 years old and I haven't stopped from then
- beach volley (3 times a week or more in summer!) , lindy hop, swimming, play table tennis,
- Learning new things, talking about the world, travelling of course.
- I learned how to ski just a few years ago and now I love it!!!

Music, Movies, and Books

I love watching series, you can live different kind of lives through the characters.
- COMEDIES A LOT!! Modern family, Brooklyn99, New girl, Silicon Valley, The big bang theory, two and a half men, and older ones... IT Crowd, How I met your mother, Scrubs, friends.
- Political: House of Cards
- Investigation: Breaking bad, Lie to me
- Also historical/fantasy series: Of course Game Of Thrones!!, The Hundred, Stargate, Black Sails, Daredevil, Spartacus, Rome, Hornblower
- I am difficult with music, only like few songs but from many groups.
- About movies I like the ones that describes reality, that makes you think, like Le carré based movies (Tailor of Panama, Constant Gardener) or Rwanda Hotel.
