I've been living a nomadic lifestyle for the last 2 years.
I started traveling in October 2014, from Mexico heading south through central and south America.
Born in Colombia, grew up in North America. I became a hybrid of two very different worlds. After living in Southern California, Calgary, Canada, I now live in San Francisco, California.
I love meeting new people, making new friends and being really social. I enjoy walking, hiking, reading, listening to stories about other countries, biking, surfing, hearing other languages and cooking. I'd like to know your story.
I love teaching people what I know and learning new things from them, everyone always has something to share, we just have to be willing to listen.
Different people from different countries will always have something to share. Soon enough you will be making friends from all over the world and you will know a little bit about a lot of things.

For my travel blog:
"My favorite thing is going where I've never been."
"Happiness is only real when shared."
"...There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more.."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I started my Couchsurfing experience while living in Calgary, Canada. I was not able to host anyone but I was part of their weekly meetups and events. It was clear to me then as it is now, that I had found something that interested me very much.
I try to be as welcoming as possible, showing people the city where I live or taking them out for a drink. Showing them all the spots I've come to know.
I've now hosted CSers in Colombia, Canada and the US. Looking to expand that as much as possible. It has not only showed me many different people but also has fueled my desire to travel. The best way to know a location, through the eyes of a local.
I think this is one of the best websites I've had a chance to click on. It allows for a close human contact, unlike most of the stuff you find online. It allows for strangers to become friends in distant lands.
I've met some of the most amazing people through this website. Some whom I met many years ago and I can still call good friends.
:: Music - of all kinds
:: Interior design
:: Great literature
:: Mobile photos
Music, Movies, and Books
electro-indie, indie and some folk. Along with 90's classics and all that stuff you can sing along to, might not be too good but it stirs some good memories.
Movies: Intelectual dramas. Movies that make you think or challenge your perspective on something. World cinema. French, Italian, Spanish (language).
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I have survived -35C. Walking.
No, it wasn't by choice. Pure necessity.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you about photography. How to cook some awesome food. I've got camping tips from just about every National Park in California + some in Utah/Colorado/Nevada. I can tell you about Western Canada. I can now tell you lots of stories about central and south america.
I will learn anything you are willing to teach me.
