About Me


Be Happy, meet cool people and travel the World!


WARNING:Are you planing a trip to Colombia? Will you take the risk? PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THIS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgW8Y7F8DN8 ___________________________________________________

I can describe myself as a caring, faithful and easy-going person. I also have a positive and creative attitude. I am a technology enthusiast, always up-to-date with the latest gadgets and gismos. I enjoy spending time with my friends and the people I love, always learning and sharing. I love to travel the world and discover new people and cultures. I am most definitely dedicated to making people happy.

During my free time i usually prefer: - A party with nice people and lots of dancing - A good dinner and better if i have the oportunity to try some new food! - A good movie: No drama, I prefer movies that makes me laugh or at least think a little bit - A good theater play and better if it's not a normal play, I love crazy and not-common plays - I love contemporary circus!!! (Like cirque du Soleil) - Just chilling in a park with some sun and nice people - I love travelling and meeting new people!!!!

Every single person that I meet is a source of great energy! Each of of the people I love give makes me happy, so if I add the happiness that all the people give me, in result I'm very happy!
