About Me


To host or not tu surf. That is the question


Language enthusiast, full time journalist, journeyman photographer, teacher.


É un mondo difficile, e vita intensa. Felicitá a momenti, e futuro incerto.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Both hosting and surfing. I have more experience as a host, because I can only travel a few weeks a year. At first I've hosted all kinds of travelers, but now I'm more selective and try to avoid freeloaders and people with no experience or empty profiles. Since couchsurfing has turned into a massive popular thing where people come only to have a free place to stay, I prefer to host travelers with references and experience as a host.


I've hosting since october 2012 (more than 10 guests, all of them great experiences) and make my debut as a surfer in 2013 trevelling around Russia and the Baltic.


Journalism, Photography, foreign languajes, Music, Sports, Arts & Culture.
You can find all kind of books and music in my house. And I bet I can show you music from your own country you didn't know about!

Music, Movies, and Books

Everything I'm interested I put it on my websites:
NEW! (Photography) (Cultural news from Buenos Aires) (Global music)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Travel around the Balkans pretending I was one of them (or at least trying)

Teach, Learn, Share

Because I'm a professor; my teaching vocation never stops. I can teach of course spanish, but also journalism, web and graphic desing, photography (both analogic and digital). My home has a large library (most in spanish) dedicated to Communications, History, Sociology, Music, Arts. And if you want to explore all kinds of music from around the world, I'm the right man for the job.

Learn? Every languaje I can (from every country I've been or I'm going to be in the future), and music.

Countries I’ve Visited

Albania, Austria, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Macedonia, Morocco, Paraguay, Poland, Romania, Russian Federation, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey, Uruguay
