ABOUT ME

I'm just someone who loves travelling, having a nice conversation, and other simple pleasures.

I think I'm a social person, but I always prefer just a few deep personal relationships, than a lot of them but superficials. Is the "natural" way that I have to relate with others. It's not something rational, it's just happens.

Recently, I became really interested in Permaculture. That is basically a more sustainable way of living. Last year I started to do some gardening in my backyard, and I found it very enjoyable and relaxing, besides the fact that you are producing healthy food. So, now I really want to learn more about it!

Currently I'm travelling, but at home I live with my dog close to Buenos Aires. In a little city called Hudson.

Now, besides going to the main cities, I'm interested also about going to more rural areas, and volunteering is a good way that I found to do that, and to stay longer in a place.

Hitchhiking is for me the more interesting, unpredictable, and funny way of travelling. I've done many trips this way in Argentina and one trip in Latinoamerica. I think travelling in general is more about the people that you can meet, than the places. So, slow travelling seems to be for me, the more interesting and transforming way to do it.

When I was younger ;-) I discovered my first passion: the Shootingsport! It made me grow as a person, and also allowed me to travel to international competitions in South and Cental America, and also Europe.

Photography is something that I really enjoy too:

About my profession, I'm a psychologist but I didn't work yet in that field. That would be after this trip!

PHILOSOPHY

La suerte es amiga de la acción!
