About Me


Exploring the world :)


I would describe myself as polite, funny, curious and adventurous, however, sometimes I like to kick back and just enjoy to do nothing.
When I travel I like to go out, hike or walk through the city, relax at a cool location and socialize with the locales.
I don't like to visit museums or cross out sights from a list, which doesn't mean that I have no interest in cultural things.

Me describiría como una persona amigable, divertida, curiosa y aventurera, pero a veces me gusta solamente relajarme y nada más.
Cuando viajo me gusta mucho salir en la noche, pasear (caminando por la cuidad), relajarme y relacionarme con la gente local. No, me gusta visitar museos, es menos sobre tachar cosas de una lista sino más acerca de conocer y divertirme.

Even though I like to go out I don't like binge drinking at all, I won't drink in order to get drunk. Also I try to adapt a vegan lifestyle or at least to try to eat healthy.

Aunque me encanta salir por la noche no me gusta tomar, tomo muy rara vez!
También trato de dejar comer carne y quiero alimentarme saludable .
He hecho la experiencia que mucho gente tiene poca tolerancia pero les prometo no tiene nada de malo :)


Don't take life seriously because you can't come out of it alive.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Asisto las reuniones cuando pueda y siempre trato de ayudar siempre que pueda.
I go to the meetings, try to host, get hosted and try to help travelers.


Había conocido CS en Bangkok dónde he visitado las reuniones luego he conocido Couchsurfers y también surfed en India, Madrid, New York, México, Colombia, Perú y Bolivia. Especialmente en México pude conocer mucho gente de CS en particular a través de las reuniones.

I've hosted in Bangkok, surfed in Latin America and Europe.
