About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To enjoy the best things life has to offer

ABOUT ME

I'm very relaxed and easy-going. I can have fun doing just about anything and you'll hardly ever hear me complain about something. I try to make the best of every situation.

PHILOSOPHY

You only live once.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love travelling and meeting new people and couchsurfing is a great way to do both. When I can't offer a couch I'm generally available to go out to get a drink or coffee.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted, been hosted and have been out and about with CS members.

Interests

Sports, partying, chilling, reading and basically doing anything that's fun to do. I love beer and good food and I really enjoy cooking.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies - Shawshank Redemption, Hotel Rwanda, The Shining, among many others (way too many to write them all down here).
Music - Hip-Hop, Rock, Blues, Spanish Classical Guitar, Samba... (also too many to write them all down)
Books - my favorite by far is Crime and Punishment by Dostoievsky, but I can also devour easy to ride thrillers from John Grisham and Dan Brown.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Up to now I'd have to say the most amazing thing I've done in my life is skydiving. A really great experience that I think everyone should try. Another amazing experience was standing in the old town of Istanbul at the beginning of prayer time and listening to all the mosques come to life at the same time all over the city.

Teach, Learn, Share

Everyone has something to teach, learn and share. What's important is keeping an open mind to absorb all the great things people can add to our lives. I guess different people might learn different things from me and I can always learn things from others since I'm always looking to acquire as much knowledge and life experience as possible. As for sharing, apart from sharing my apartment with my guests I guess the most important thing we can share are our stories.
