Musician.
Humanist.
Traveller.

Me, I love bikes. In the city. In the countryside. For travelling. No mather the place. In my opinion is just the nicest, healthiest, funniest way of transport ever.

I like geopraphy and maps. For me travelling is to walk on a real map to discover and to learn from locals who live there, to explore new places and to return to that special corners that we feel like home.
To find nice cities, charm villages, and to have fun, to meet interesting people and to learn from every situation that happens during the trip. At the end I think we became more humans

I love mountains, climbing and camping.
I dream with a world where humans protect and respect natural spaces and wild nature areas.
I like to learn new languages, always from people.
I'm musician since I was 8 years old, so I feel music as a part of me.

A few of my favourite places:
Streets of Toledo at night and SemanaSanta in Cuenca with Gasoli (traditional drink).
I love Granada in winter, and Galicia in summer.
I like SaintPetersburg in January, and Loire Valley in November. I love Carpats Mountains in December. I love Mexico on September 15th.
I like french wine in oldcity of Le Mans. It's incredible Lisbon, anytime.
Everyday is emotional Sarajevo at 8pm from the hill.

I love, of course, CouchSurfing!
I always feel that humans in the world could be cooperation and coexistance, instead of competitiveness with each other.
I dream with a trip by bike around the world ;-)

PHILOSOPHY

Only when the last tree hast been cut down, the last fish caught, and the last stream poisoned, will we realice we cannot eat money.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's a great idea that provides you the oportunity to have wonderful conexions with incredible people everywhere you go.

When you host at home a lot of people from many countries, maybe it's like to travel around the world without going out from you home

Interests


After all the goal for me is just to live conscientiously the present, cause life is a great gift...so Enjoy the beauty everywhere

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

First day in my life I went for Ski...by mistake I took the wrong télésiège so got the highest point where there were no people cause it was closed. So... After a while I found myself lost in the middle of Alps mountains, alone almost in the darknest, snow everywhere, and I just play on my phone the song Three little birds of Bob Marley and...simply smile! At the end, I found the way (red pistes) and everything was alright!

At the end of april 2015 I went to Jordan, I visited Petra, and... just get fascinated, for such an awesome place. I was talking with the local people from the little shops selling souvenirs. I was invited to smoke bedouin tobaco and to drink tea under the shadow of a tree, on the way to the Monastery. When I arrived to the top of the monastery, it was already the sunset, and I decided to climb up until the tent where was written 'views'. So, in there I met a bedouin musician who live in there, He was playing LAUD, and...that moment was just magic!
Then they invited me to join a dinner in the dessert with his friends, and it was just amazing

Get the top of the highest volcano in Europe and to see over the Atlantic Ocean while I am eating an awesome BOCADILLO DE JAMÓN.

To climb over 5000m high, and to feel your heart running very very fast, to feel so exausted, and finally...to Get the top of the hightes montain in Mexico, almost 5700m, Pico de Orizaba, and to enjoy the sunrise at this point!!

To cross the borther/frontier between Mexico and Guatemala without passport. We just crossed the river Usumacinta -that is full of wild animals like crocodiles- in a woodmade boat. We forgot our passports, but at "migration control" the soldiers were so friendly and we could visit the country without problem (and without passport)
