About Me


step on another country soon!


Bufff.. no idea! I've never been good at descriptions, and even worse when it takes to describe myself. Sometimes I feel that I'm not able to do it because I still don't know me at all.

mm.. people says I'm an enthusiastic, I rarely have a NO as an answer. I think I'm also a really positive person, always trying to see the glass half-full instead of half-empty. I'm a cheerful one and you would not find it difficult to make me laught.

I'm more emotional than rational (though I think I use both emotion and ration a lot, just in different situations). Although I try it, I can't never make longterm plans,I always make decitions spontaneously.

I'm a bit shy and usually avoid being the center of attention. Also there is the thing that my English fluency is not.. fantastic nowadays (maybe more than two years without practising). But once I have confindence you might well have to stop me from speaking.

I'm studying medicine at the University of Barcelona. That's my main reason of being so busy during the week. Nevertheless, whenever I have the chance I'd be thrilled to hear your storys and experiences, as well as helping you to get into the Spannish world.


The expected is just the begining, the unexpected is what changes our lives. We have to live our lives fully!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can't offer my house because I still live with parents. But as much as I can, I would love to show you around my place and help you to get a deeper insight of the Spannish thing. Always willing to share and increase your experiences.


This experience is something that's new to me, and I'm excited to get started!


There are many things I like to do, to see, and to experience.

I like to read, I like to write; I like to think, I like to dream; I like to talk, I like to listen.
I like to see the sunrise in the morning, I like to see the moonlight at night; I like to feel the music flowing on my face, I like to smell the wind coming from the ocean.
I love to look at the clouds in the sky with a blank mind, I like to do thought experiment when I cannot sleep in the middle of the night. I like flowers in spring, rain in summer, leaves in autumn, and snow in winter.
I like to sleep early, I love to get up late; I like to be alone, I like to be surrounded by people.
I like good books and romantic movies. I like people. And, overall, I like to laugh.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love films and novels based on real events, overall those related with historic facts and the IIWW: The pianist, Life is beautiful, Flags of our fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima..
As for the books, lots. There's a glimpse:
If this is a man (Primo Levi), Los que susurran, On the road, Cometas en el cielo, Catedral del Mar, A thousand splendid suns.
Music: I can hear to almost whatever type, but my most heard ones are The Strokes, Paolo Nutini,The Kooks, Two door cinema club, The Fray and Coldplay. For relaxing evenings Yiruma.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Skying surrounded by only enormous snow-covered montains, awesome. Falling sleep in the beautiful (and comfortable) aiport of Bangkok and lose the transfer.
