About Me


Going there but i like it here wherever it is


I have been traveling non-stop in Asia since November 2011!! January the first of this year (2014) I came to Mexico, so i can use it as a base to explore Central America and the Caribbean. I love to explore on things beyond my capabilities, things out of my nature. Understanding cultured behaviors complete me as a living being. Exploring new cultures through all of my senses: listening, touching, tasting, smelling is the way I like to travel and the way I enjoy life.


Always willing to learn, explore and share

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I'm in Buenos Aires:I'm always looking forward to host fellow CSers. I love to show people around this magnificent city, and if your willing take you out of the tourist circus ups! I mean circuit. Ill fill you with useless tips and some that can actually come in handy. If you want to live in Buenos Aires I would be more then glad to help you out, tell how to get a job and where to find cheap long term places to live.When I'm traveling:I think people make the place more than the landscape itself. So im always open to meet new people: travelers to share a new place, and locals that can show you around. Really interested in different cultures and how people live and carry there life. We all have a story and I would love to hear them all.


Kidnapped some tourists at the airport and made them sleep in my couch
