About Me

CURRENT MISSION

explore the outside and inside world

ABOUT ME

I don't have a goal in my life other than to enjoy it while becoming a better person and to give something positive to the people around me. I try never to have expectations and therefore don't get disappointed much.

I love outdoors, going to the beach, snorkeling, surfing, snowboarding or hiking in the mountains. I do jogging and mountain-biking several times a week, I am lately into contact-improvisation dancing, its a really good exercise and and a way to learn listening the other and yourself!. Last but not least, I also meditate, its all about consciousness! I Think I am open minded and love new experiences.

I was working as engineer, then I quit i all to go to study a master's and PhD in Tokyo. In Tokyo I studied some sociology, psychology, philosophy, spiritualism topics and applied them for technology design, I enjoy thinking about humans rather than about machines!

Now I am back to Barecelona, I am living a flat over my grandparents home, cheering up and taking some care of them, this was the reason why I came back, and it has been one of the most fulfilling times in my life!

PHILOSOPHY

Love every second, every people and every little thing the nature gives us all

A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.(Lao Tzu)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I hosted a few people in my apartment in Tokyo until October, then I stayed with amazing people in South Korea and Russia while traveling Trans-Siberian railway from Japan to Spain, I offer my place in a village nearby Manresa, about 1 hour from Barcelona.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couch surfing let me experience the kindness of the peoples of this world. Let me see out of my limits. Made me want to be a better person. Gave me directions for my future: care for the others, starting from my family and volunteering
