About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Following hints in my spitual path. Meeting wonderful people in life. Learning about different approaches to health.

ABOUT ME

I'm a quiet person who enjoys sharing and learning from other people's views and experiences. I am a good listener. Have a sense of humour.
Foreign languages allow me to communicate with lots of people. I love languages, but above all, I love PEOPLE and I love LIFE.

PHILOSOPHY

RESPECT, respect and more respect.

Humor everywhere

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My door is open to travellers. I can show people around If I have the time.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Isn't this a great idea? The more I think about it and experience it, the more I like it. I usually host rather than surf.

Interests

Curious about psychology, philosophy, meditation, spirituality, Reiki, how energy flows, how what we do or think affects our lives or others...

I recently developed an interest towards health issues and the different approaches there are in the world.

I love cinema, specially those films which make you think or show you other aspects of life or the world that we never get to see.

I am also into CLOWN! I love exploring this creative side of mine now.
I also enjoy singing. And dancing....!! Have you ever tried Biodanza? It can be very powerful.

I'm not very keen on cooking regularly, but I do enjoy learning about it. I love learning new recipes from others. All my repect for Indian cuisine.

Music, Movies, and Books

Some very good films for me are: My life without me, After the wedding (Swedish), Man on Wire, The Educators - Times of plenty are over(German film) and many other well-told stories. Buster Keaton.

Lots of music - mainly my brother's selection (not mainstream) I'm terrible with names. Others I like are Coldplay, the Doors, Francis Cabrel, Pablo Alboran, soul music, Salsa... and many others. Need to update, though.

Here are some books I really enjoyed: The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger, A Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, Abel Sanchez by Unamuno. I am now reading a lot about the medical world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spending a year in a country without not knowing its two languages (Belgium), ok, their their three languages.

Using "tirolina" (zipper) a couple of times, specially once jumping out of a very high castle. Impressive.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach Spanish and other languages!
I know some juggling, some ball-room dancing, some salsa...

Although I'm not very keen on cooking, I like it when people show me simple recipes they know.

Countries I’ve Visited

Countries I’ve Lived In

Belgium, Scotland, Spain
