About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Trying to spend as much free time as I have travelling and meeting people

ABOUT ME

I am argentinian, i decided to travel alone when i was 17 and went to visit the north of argentina on my own, was a great experience that i would never forget! i realized that travelling alone is a good chance to meet a lot of people, but happiness needs to be shared with other people too so i tend to mix trips with friends with trips alone. when i was 22 i came to visit my spanish roots and found that spain was absolutely great for living, i decided to stay, and moved to the beautiful and super easy going barcelona... i would take the same decision i took that time once and again... so i think it was a right decision! after a couple of years i moved to london, i needed to leave in a big city! barcelona could seem to be a small town sometimes, but london was too big (but awesome!) and i decided to come back to barcelona.. here i am again, enjoying this city as much as i can. i like my life, being with friends, meeting people around the world and showing this city to visitors. love sports, specially swimming, cicling and yoga.
festivals are my other passion, and try to go as much as i can...

PHILOSOPHY

life is a boomerang. mmmhhh, that means that i want to do the right thing (what is the right thing?, who knows!) however, i try to think and do what i want without bothering other people, if you think twice before doing stuff, everything will run much more smoother in life... think twice before you do something it is not a hassle, at the end, you can do whatever you want but without bothering other people... that is how i try to behave, and try to keep it in mind all the time. The boomerang thing is that many times, things come back to you in a different way but with the same essence, therefore, being careful about the others could help you so things that are coming back to you may be good and not bad!!
I really enjoy talking to people, I met such nice people around the world that for me is part of my essence, I decided to lived very far away from my family and I think that you need to be strong and friendly at the same time, you have to do everything on your own and feeling of doing that is amazing... also the people i am meeting around the world give me a lot of energy... i cannot imagine my life without it!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I was a bit surprised when I first met my friend Adri who was receiving people at his place in Berlin, for me was a new experience, I was not doing coach surfing but the idea of joining this community came to my mind, but it took a while for me to get started...im sure i can be a nice guest and a hopefully offer a nice stay to those coach surfers who want to stay at my place...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Not yet...but did stay in a house in berlin where i lived with coach surfers...

Interests

Swimming, pilates, yoga, drawing, taking pictures, talking!!!, sharing experiences, dancing, cicling, recicling, restoring old furniture, reading, travelling, being with friends, drinking beer, eating, cooking, ufff, so many other things...

Music, Movies & Books

amateur movies, weird directors but also not weird directors too! i am open minded so, any piece of art that allows me to build a second view about things is what i look for...
lately, al otro lado, fatih akin explode my mind!
latest books: omar pamuk me llamo rojo... soooo beautiful...
