About Me


know the world and let the others know my country !!!!


Well......... I live in Rio De Janeiro - RJ - Brazil, but I was born in Bogotá - Colombia I'm 28 years old and if someday you want to come to this city just let me know, I like sports such soccer, NFL, NHL, MLB and 80's music, I am an Industrial Engineer. I've travelled around Colombia, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina.


Live and let Fly !!! Be willing to get up early and sleeping late, travelers can not waste time sleeping. Be willing to sleep on the floor from up eating only rice for no more, that's my philosophy of life and travel. SO.............LET'S TAKE THE RISK !!!!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I participate with meetings in the different cities I visited, all the big cities have great meetings and different places for example in Belo Horizonte the famous building called Malleta, In Rio copacabana beach, Montevideo the old city and Buenos Aires Plaza Serrano. Now that I am at home I am hosting visitors that are interested to know a little bit about Ibagué. I've been surfing for almost 6 months in Colombia, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. When I was abroad I used to help some Couchsurfers and show them the local places even that it wasn't my homeland


The experience has been great, there in Brazil with people of Sao Paulo, Belo Horizonte and Rio de Janeiro,In colombia i've surfed in Bogotá and in Uruguay Montevideo and Colonia Del Sacramento. they are very friendly and they r always trying to help me here.
