About Me

CURRENT MISSION

es sólo un camino entre cantidades de caminos... Buscando el que tiene corazón

ABOUT ME

Openminded, easygoing and very very curious!

You know when you are a child and people ask you what you want to do when you grow up? Astronaut, fireman, monster, alien, well, all that stuff... I always wanted to climb a hot-air baloon and see the world!

But I guess I am a Bilbo Bolson kindda person too.. I really love being at home, with my loved ones,friends, family, animals, plants.. my safe place, just in peace. This two opposites at first sight but very enriching characteristics are always inside me.

That's why (one of the many whys) CS looks so wonderful to me: I can travel around the whole world feeling I'm at home, meeting "real" people, not tourist guides, learning about cultures from the inside.

And, at the same time, I love the idea of you sharing experiences with us in my home. I want to learn about you and your culture, talk about movies, music, books, travels we've made or we are planning, or just look at the forms of the clouds in a friendly atmosphere. And, why not, cooking as well. Maybe you can learn tradicional recipes of argentinian food or teach us some traditionals from your country/culture.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

mmm...

-I've seen a baby wale being breast-feeded just a couple of meters from my boat (well, actually not mine..)

-I've felt MachuPicchu

-been in a Totora's Island (wich is a traditional handmade floating island made of totora, a plant) by the Uros in the Titicaca Lake, Puno, Peru, and sailed in a totora's boat too.

-sailed in a rubber boat really close to the Iguazu Falls when I was a child

-I've been for a couple of days in the world's largest salt flat (wich is 10,582 km2 and is elevated 3,656 meters above the sea level), in Bolivia.

and most incredible, amazing thing I've kindda done (I think it just happened, I didn't actually "do" it): I've found my other half, the love of my life
(yeah, sickly corny, I know, I can't help it, sorry!)
