I love to travel and dream about discovering the entire world by my own, getting to know new cultures, new people, and finding the way to capture all those amazing things that traveling offers with my camera. I work as a freelance photographer and graphic designer and I have founded a startup in Portugal (although I am Spanish), but my main professional goal is just to make enough money to be happy doing what I do and scape every time I can. :) So I guess I am pretty lucky cause it is actually my way of living :)
I believe I am a happy person, polite, calm and quite, but pretty sociable because I've been working with people since I was 16 years old. I love to talk and get lost in conversations where probably we'll not find a solution for the problems of the world, but we still will try to fix it. :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Even if I would be rich I think I would always take the option to be accommodated in local places or hostels, where I can easily meet people and get to know cultures. I use to be solo traveler and sometimes I get bored of being walking alone, so Couchsurfing is a great opportunity to make friends and have plans with someone that knows the city. I won't be annoying if you are busy :) I am easily adaptable to all kind of circumstances. :D
Things that I specially love: Travelling, dancing, design, journalism, philosophy, social psychology, photography, sketching, illustration, love, life, family, typography, doing sports, overcoming fears...
I enjoy a lot analysing the smell of the air of each city I visit as well =)
