About Me


Travelling is my medicine and my university


I am open mind, worried for the social problems, interested in meeting people and sharing experiences in travelling.


Try to learn something from each person that I meet in my live

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When you start in CS the first thing that you think is that you can save a lot of money. But when you have had some experiences the money is the less important thing. You can live incredible experiences and meet different people. It´s an unique oportunity to become a traveller and not a tourist.


I have been doing CS around Australia and I have met incredible people and lived awesome experiences. Later in Barcelona, I have met a lot of couchsurfers and I am so glad to show my city and our traditions. Now in Mallorca, I can host travellers for first time and at the moment all the experiences have been perfect.
