About Me


Become the best version of myself


I'm a nice lad, an enthusiastic friend, a reserved and decent man, and a great company for any occasion! Although sometimes I'm a little bit shy I like to meet new people, know new places and try new things. I'm curious, so i love to explore and find my own ways through the places i visit or follow the lead of my local new friends :)
I enjoy a nice talk drinking a pint in a pub or the taste of a coffee with good company more than a loud party night i must say, (but of course i'm up to almost anything after a couple drinks haha)
What else can i say? I'm a human full with emotions, interests, passions and secrets just like everyone else.. the interesting part comes when sharing that!
I love the simple things in life. Honestly I get amused all the time like a little boy haha.
I try to save the best parts of all experiences i live. That's why traveling is so precious to me, travels are full with experiences, amazing people and golden moments!

"Live the moment"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have my door, my mind and my heart opened to new people!


I've hosted amazing people, which make me be even more amazed of how unique and special is this person called "traveler"...

Then i became that traveler...
I've traveled quite more than i ever expected and yet i feel wanderlust... I saw amazing places, i met unforgettable people and i felt, smelled, tasted, listened, lived unique experiences...
I knew a fraction of this world and yet it felt like soooo much! Now i want more than ever to know it all!
Even if it takes all my life (which i'd love :D )


Nature, Architecture, Hiking, Bouldering, Climbing, Food, Arts, Philosophy, Sciences, Places, People, Stories, Travel (obviously) and deep conversations, it does not matter what about, but i enjoy so much learning other people's points of view about anything.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies... I enjoy almost any movie. I love to watch 'em, although I'm not a fan of gore haha.

Music... I love to listen to any genere. Seriously from classical to dubstep! But to be honest sometimes I can just get tired about some of them haha.

Books... I'm not really a big reader, but there are some titles that i've really enjoyed and from which i've learned a lot.
