About Me


Go everywhere! see as much as I can while learning from the different people, cultures and way of living and trying to reach the best version of myself


Just a couple of my favorite sayings:
Don't let people telling you what it's going on in the world, go and see it by yourself
I'm the type of person who usually choose to know the ugly truth rather than the pretty lie
Variety is the spice of life/En la variedad esta el gusto
Discussions/debates lead to knowledge

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet different type of people from all different backgrounds... Getting to know the locals & saving some money so I can travel more and longer :)


By couchsurfing and hosting


My first approach to couchsurfing was in 2008, I met a guy in New Zealand who helped me in my first days, he introduced me to his family and gave me advice and tips. I didn't stayed at his place even though I was offered to stay at his place but at that time and due my basic English level I preferred stay in a hostel where I could met more Spanish speakers.
After that me and my girlfriend at that time stayed a couples of nights in a students apartment in Munchen. The host it was a really interesting guy, really open, outgoing person, who could speak different languagues.
The first time I hosted someone was in Canada, I was renting a flat and had a spare room, and a girl from France and her mother were travelling around and stayed for a few days...They were really nice, and I still can remember the awesome"french pate" we ate.


I love sports, watching and playing them even though in the last year haven't done as much as I used to and would like to do. I'm a big fun of football (soccer) and tennis but appreciate and know a bit about many different sports.
Who says food? Since I was a kid I love cooking television programs, and enjoy a lot talking about food, cooking, trying new dishes/ingredients and going out for dinner.
I'm really interested in society, the way we as a human being are living today and used to live, I think we could do much better than we are doing today.
At the moment I'm trying to learn more about photography so it would be great to meet some experts on that

Music, Movies, and Books

I got really into movies in the last years, I enjoyed a lot watching kind of realistic movies...the kind of movies you forget you're actually watching a movie while doing it.
Best movies for me are the ones you kept on thinking about them after a few days.
I like music but just as most of the people does I guess, I have a few kind of favorites bands but in general I'm a pretty random song lover...if you can say that

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A few things I really remember and would love to do again:

Skydiving in NZ
See the wild and semi-wild Orangutans in Borneo
Swimming with dolphins in Mexico
Walking up to Machu Picchu across the "camino del inca" (Inca trail)
Visiting Taj Mahal
Scuba diving in the great barrier reef
Motorbike trips around SEA

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm always up to help if someone needs to improve or would like to learn Spanish, happy to talk about life and travel experiences and give some tips from the places I've been. And maybe do some cooking as well.
Photography, Italian languague and Yoga are on my list of things I wanna learn and/or get more into hopefully I come across some expert couchsurfers in those areas
