Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

By couchsurfing and hosting

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

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 didnt 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 prefered stay in a hostel where I could met more spanish speakears. 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 firts time I recieved someone in my place 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, still remember the "french pate" we ate.

Interests

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. Im a big fun of football (soccer) and tennis but appreciate and know a bit about many different sports. Who says food? Since Im a kid I love cooking television programmes, and enjoy a lot talking about food, cooking, trying new dishes/ingredients and going out for dinner. Im 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.

Music, Movies & 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 Im a random song lover (if that make sense).

One Amazing Thing I've Done

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

-Skydiving...awww, pure adrenaline, specially the free fall. -Swimming with dolphins...they are really cute and friendly fellas. -Walking up to Machu Picchu across the "camino del inca" (Inca trail). -Being in front of the Taj Mahal. -Scuba diving...its just like going to another world -Travel across the south of Chile. -Eating "untraditional" food in Thailand, Scorpion included.
