About Me


I try to be open minded. I like to laugh, to have interesting conversations, you know human stuff :)
Also, really like animals, especially cats.
By the way, I don't smoke and I'm vegan


Philosophy is not enough

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting, surfing and "spreading the word"


They range from very positive to very interesting


Music, learning, running, walking, riding my bike, swimming, games, movies, documentaries, eating and traveling of course

Films: The Big Lebowski, Castaway on the moon, Waking Life, Fight Club, Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, The Science of Sleep, Stranger than fiction, Crash, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead, Matrix (only the first one), Bowling for Columbine, Diarios de motocicleta, Mary and Max, Mar adentro, Kšoyaanisqatsi, The century of the self, Wings of Desire...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I’ve felt ecstatic just by playing music and
I’ve had a few amazing lucid dreams (so that’s a couple of things)

Teach, Learn, Share

This ‘teach, learn, share’ aspect of couch surfing is one of the most important reasons to travel. I don’t know what specific things we will share, but I’m sure they will come to us
