About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Rambla pa'qui Rambla pa'lla !!! Souriez!!! :D

ABOUT ME

I like having fun, not my president (the ex one, finally!! and unfortunately the new one too), meeting new people, discovering new places, eating good food, good beer, siesting, making asados with friends, taking crazy decisions al toque, going to concerts, nature, playing,...

I'm an anthusiastic person. Usually, people i meet ask me if I'm taking guronsan ;) I'm an enthusiastic person!
Also, i've met some people asking me if i was doing theater (the one acting live), but I'm not. So I guess i might be signs/looking/acting communicative!

PHILOSOPHY

It might have nothing to do in this profile's part, but i just really like chatting with people, dreaming and trying to make "projects" out of them ! Just not being afraid or limited by anything ! We'd like to do that ? Let's give ourselves the means to do it !!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Fiesta de la cerveza en Villa Belgrano, Cordoba. That was a crazy CS meeting with beer, meat, beer, meat, fernet, beer, volleyball, meat and beer!

When we called a friend of Quan and his brother. Having a raclette at home with some friends. "Where is Bryan?!" And when they stared at all the people in the street having fun and drinking for "la fete de la musique"!

Riding up a bike with Rachel and partying with Kirstina!

Meeting up Didier in front of an aerie of freeway hitchiking to Lille!

Hosting Flore and Audeline who assimilated Rennes as a small village from all the people we were meeting in the street by chance!

Getting to know a today close friend, Hernan, in Cordoba.
