About Me


To live each day as if it was the last one... To travel, to enjoy and be Happy everyday :)


Hi, I'm Oscar! An aventurous chilean who left his beautiful country in 2009 for finishing his engineering degree in France. Since I arrived to France, I have met great persons, learned a lot about theirs cultures, visited beautiful places and the most important I released my current mission... Be happy! :D

I really like meeting new people and places... I have friends from all around the world, I promise one day I will go to visite all of them ^^.

About me... I would say, I am someone friendly, easy-going,open-minded who likes to enjoy simple things in life.


To be a better man everyday

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I started to couch some people when I moved to Paris, even if my studio was tiny... my heart is giant so I welcomed everyone who sent me a nice request. (and of course no one with a copy-past request). I received people from different countries, each one of the a nice experience... except for one...

I traveled with a friend for East Europe in the "summer" of 2011 using the the inter rail ticket, it was an amazing experience!!! we surfed in Paris, Prague and Vienna, every host was very kind and friendly.

I like going to the Couchsurfing events...it is a good place to meet open-minded / traveler people.


My interest...let me see...¦

I enjoy watching movies, travelling, meeting new people, listening good music and recently ... reading a good book (thanks to the Paris metro, because every day it take me around 50 minutes to arrive to work )

In the other hand, I'm a very critical person, who continually get informed about what happened in the world and in my country, looking for a way to have a better world :)

I'm also very interested in everything related to ancient civilization (specially Greek and Roman), when I visited Athens and Rome, it was a dream come true.
I also like history from 20th Century. With a friend we visited so many places related to the first and second world war (Berlin national museum, Auschwitz or the Oskar Schindler museum in Krakow...) each one was a very interesting reminder about what happened in the past and we should never forget.
