About Me

CURRENT MISSION

3D print a big map of the world

ABOUT ME

Random adventurer, food-lover, and just someone who finds -really- interesting to talk with people about ideas and experiences. So going to the other end of the world and see how people think, laugh and spend their days its one amazing thing.

After a while traveling for places always end up being just watching buildings, parks and churches, but people and how the interact with each other... thats what really shows how that place is!

PHILOSOPHY

What I think is that no matter what, you can't remain still in one place, you always have to keep moving forward. Life has to be lived, and to its full extent.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Always up for a drink, and even more if its beer ;) and some clever conversation

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Surfed in more than 10 countries already.. and i wouldn't ever go back again to how i used to travel before. How can you meet a local in a hostel? Learn what to eat or the political situation of the place? If they have funny nicknames for things?

Interests

Discussions about .. EVERYTHING (although mostly life, politics, societies, etc), Music, Movies, Books and Science.

Music, Movies & Books

Music- Mostly jazz and funk, more than less progressive/psychedelic rock and some blues.

Movies- Hitchcock, tarantino, kubrik, wes anderson and so on..

Books- When reading I mostly go with dystopian novels and science fiction. So Asimov, Clarke, Bradbury, K Dick and so on.

I particularly enjoy some garcia marquez, cortazar and borges.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Amazing thing done: Climbing Machu Picchu

Amazing thing seen: The Moscow Metro
