About Me


Walking around!!



I'm a quiet guy, I like to share my time with people and share their and my experiences. My idea of travelling is not to be in a rush to see and many things as possible, I prefer to share a long conversation, to exchange points of view, to see a sunset or to smell the scent of time. I really get angry when I see something unfair in this world, but only sometimes.
I'm honest, emotional, respectful, independent, I like to dream in future travels.


Live and let live

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I try to help as much as possible to all people who writes to me, for information, accomodation, etc., and I try to engage other people to this great project.


I think I'm a really lucky person and I always had nice hosts. I love all of them, they make me feel as part of their lifes!
Everywhere I stopped, anyone I hosted, was a great experience!!


I really like photography (http://ricardaltesmolina.com/) and travelling, a great experience to meet new people and contact with other cultures. Above all, I love Iran, the Caucasus and Central Asia areas.
Apart of travelling, I'm really interested in history, music, reading, cooking and eating ;)), learning languages, learning as much as possible from other people... whatever I can learn!!
