About Me

I'm a Spanish Engineer that after traveling the world by motorbike stayed in Belgium.

PHILOSOPHY

* Always aim to see the reality
* To understand and learn from the people I meet
* Enjoy the present of Life
* Not to be trapped in the customs & patterns
* Borders and separations are the cause of all the conflicts
* Ashamed of Europe's attitude towards refugees
* All laws and constitutions should be simplified to just the Human Rights Universal Declaration.
