About Me

Hello / Privet / Hola Rubén here 😄

Joined this app a few years ago to meet like-minded people that love traveling, like you. Not in a hook-up way, but just meet people regardless of gender/sexuality or whatever. Let’s just have a positive and memorable experience.

Making new connections around the globe is something that has brought me so much. So who am I you’re asking? Well I’m a friendly backpacking nomad and open-minded gay guy who in 2021 decided to full-time travel the world. Just as a disclaimer, most of the people I meet are straight and these things shouldn’t matter imo.

I’m on a journey to visit every nation in the world with just a backpack, camera and a smile.

Just kicked off my trip on the 13th of December 2021 by heading to Austria, Liechtenstein and Switzerland since then I’ve embarked on a multi-year trip through Asia. Which is the reason that I’m currently so active here.

I’m very curious to meet locals that want to show me their culture. And to make travel partners to join in creating awesome memories.

I’m also up to hang out with YouTubers and people from the YesFam or the JUST GO FAM to collaborate with.

And of course couches to crash during my travel and people that are just as crazy as I am to try new experiences and interesting new food.

Got quite a few pics and info on the travels on my Insta and I recently also started a YouTube vlog on travel & geography:

Since 2020 bouldering (wall climbing) is also an amateur hobby, so definitely up to meet other people into outdoor adventures.

Hope to see you soon! And if you have a trip coming up, safe travel and I wish you lots of fun.

Rubén ;-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Throughout my travels in the 2010s I kept hearing about how CS is such a cool way of getting to know liked minded traveler and later some fellow digital nomads.

And since I already hosted over 100 guests through on Cloud bnb apps ;) joining seemed a great way to meet new people

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Why limit myself to one thing 🤣
1) Give up my house, career to pursue full-time travel.
2) Skydiving in 2021 🪂
3) It would have to be the different countries I have visited and the locals and travelers. Every country really does have such unique beautiful things about it. The best memories are genuine with local music, food and of course the experiences with the people. For me as a traveler it’s what drives me. Sharing good times and always learning ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

Always open to learning about other ways of doing, being.
