squeezing the best
Medium size, pretty blonde, funny, I like to tell and listen histories.
I love to know other countries and cultures and meet people from abroad.
I have studied Physical Activity and Sports Science. Maybe there are not the most difficult studies ever. But I learned to change my mind and to be creative and adaptable. Maybe they are not the best capacities ever. But they help me to enjoy life in a really delightful way. I'm happy about it!
I also have a blog where I write things about me.
If you like this kind of things, you can follow me on Twitter to know me better. But I am not twitting all the time. @rafalibran
And you can head here if you want to hire me:
I am not absolutely convinced of anything.
I think that the less you hesitate the more you are wrong.
Black and White are colours too much categorical. I believe in the beauty of grey -do you know the LIVE song about it?-
Mario Benedetti, the Uruguayan writer said that to be balanced is not to be warm
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I started with CS just looking for a free place to sleep and then I realised that CS is more that just sleeping.
I have been meeting people in Budapest, Sofia, Brasil (where I was living for a whole year) Berlin (where I was Erasmus student) and, of course, in Madrid, where I was born. CS is about the people! not only the places that you visit!
I love football -soccer-. I play with friends and coach in Hengda (Evergrande)-Real Madrid Fundación School in Guangzhou. Football is not about if you like Messi more than Cristiano Ronaldo. Football is about getting better, improving, sharing with friends, effort, enjoy, help, happiness, sadness, striving and... of course beautiful things!
Furthermore, I like to watch movies, read books, go out with friends. I use to ask about everything so I like to learn about everything!

Music, Movies, and Books
Movies, Music and Books out of Mainstream!
Movies: Brick, Snatch, Spartacus, The great Dictator, The Wind that Shakes the Barley, Hero, Cidade de Deus, Hedwig and the Angry Inch... and Woody Allen's Films!
Music: I love music. I still have an iPod from the 4th generation which is very big but I carry 80 GB of music in it! Pufff It's not easy to resume just some groups here. Anyway, I love Rock, but I like from blues to chill out, from flamenco to grunge, from funk to classic music... I love to go to Live shows!
Books: I really enjoy Benedetti, Galeano and Cortazar from Sudamerica's writers.

Teach, Learn, Share
Teach: I love to teach Spanish and to compare languages.
