About Me


I can host people only from the 22nd of July until the 28th of july.


Passion, drive and adrenalin with a Spanish accent ;-)

I lived abroad for many years and I miss that international contact. I also love travelling and discovering a place with the locals. feel home abroad ;-)


Live should be an adventure right. Its all about the trip, not the destination.

When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.
Henny Youngman

Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought.
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would like to meet some people for coffe or drinks and eventually when I am confortable, will start offering accomodation.
I would like to offer accomodation at least once every 2 months, may be a bit more depending on the period.
