About Me

CURRENT MISSION

We´ll post it here soon. Currently working on it. Meanwhile, we let serendipity blow the winds of our boats

ABOUT ME

**This profile may not be as "full" as I would like to have it! In spite of it, there is quite a bit of information about myself! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send me an E-mail!

**Dieses Profil befindet sich noch in Bearbeitung, aber es is nicht leer! Du kannst es ruhig lesen und mir auch eine E-mail schicken, wenn Du fragen hättest, bzw. hast!

Just a short note about our "shared profile". This profile is shared by Cecilia and Ignacio. We are siblings and we do not always travel together! We decided to have a "shared profile" because we just wanted to put all of our information in only one place! When we write to you, only one of us may be getting in touch with you, not the both of us!

The one who uses this website the most is Ignacio : ) !!!

Thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We look forward to hear from you !!!

If there is a chance, we would be very happy to meet up and enjoy a conversation with you : ) !!!

PHILOSOPHY

Try to live and experience the things that are important to you in life to the fullest !!!

Interests

I like learning languages, and learning about other people and their cultures!

I like photography a lot and was a commercial photographer in my city for four years.

We have several interests:

**The following description was written at the time I lived in Berlin that is where I found out about couch surfing,

So we like: Going out with friends for coffee or a beer, meeting new people and new places (here in Berlin that´s really cool !!). Going to art museums and art galleries. Spending time outdoors. I enjoyed going to Potsdam, a very nice and old city. Located 40 min. away from Berlin, Potsdam has beautiful castles surrounded by amazing gardens.

**In Mérida, we enjoy going to the beach, (Progreso), that is about half hour away from Mérida; taking walks around Mérida; and going for coffee or a drink.

Music, Movies & Books

Music, Books, Movies

We are enjoying books that help us to learn languages easier and faster, and we appreciate all the help given by people to our improvement of these languages that we really love (the ones mentioned in the profile) !!!

We also enjoy reading books or novels that talk about cities and the people who live in them. In this regard, I am reading a book called: "The Most Transparent Region", by Carlos Fuentes.

By the way, there is a book by Milan Kundera that I enjoyed not so long ago called: The unbearable lightness of the being. I´ll also be writing some other titles in the future.

-------------------------------------------------------

About three months ago, I ran into a book when I was in a bookstore. The book is called "1001 books you must read before you die". You'll find this book to be an amazing reference book. Several of my beloved authors are already there, (Kundera, Murakami, Vargas Llosa, Jelinek, Garcia Marquez, Hesse, P.J. Gutierrez, Kafka, Dürrenmatt), and many others which in the future I would like to read.

------------------------------------------------------

I like most kind of films. I was just thinking about Wim Wenders right now.

A film that can really break almost anybody's heart is the following:
