About Me

ABOUT ME

I think that I have an optimistic attitude towards life and I consider myself a liberal thinker.I can say that I am proud of my profession as I have been working more than 3o years in the intensive care unit as a doctor.This work and my personal experiences have made me look at the human beings in a different light.At the moment I am trying to fathom the sense of life taking delight in everything that makes me feel happy and beautiful.

PHILOSOPHY

It is imprescindible to find a sense of life "if you want to stay happy and not to get into a whingy mood".
Food for the body and soul!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

A friend of mine, Joanna, has showed me the ropes .I founded it interseting and I decided to participate in this project.
Myself and Joanna have been travelling through Spain this year and I was very pleased with the way Couch surfers treated me.It does work!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have been travelling through Spain with Joanna
(Albacete, Valencia,Jaca,Cuenca,Albaracin,Teruel,Madrid).
Inma, Fabian,Esther and Pilar have treated us very well and we felt ouserlves very comfortable while staying at their places.

As for the music, I like Yes(my favourite group alongside the Weather report).Having said that,I enjoy different music types.
I find the cinema, juxtaposition of the viniettes with the music and the dialoges, fascinating.I especially like to watch the movies by D.Lynch,D.Cronenberg,W.Allen,M.Scorsese,F.Copolla,C.Nolan,S.Kubrick,all the iconic names in the world of the cinema...., home productions as the ones of Trueba, Bunuel,Berlanga,Almodovar.....

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The word divorce has had a great influence upon my life
(strange and scary as it may seem).A divorce from my religious believes;a divorce from the orthodoxy and a divorce from the reins that have prevented me from being an owner of my time.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would share my knowledge about what I have learnt through medicine.
