Join Couchsurfing to see Rubén’s full profile. It’s free!
I am a talkative and sociable person, eager to meet new people and know a little bit more about them. One of the things that describes me better is that I am able to listen to others when they need to, as sometimes we need to find someone to explain things to!
I like piano songs, visiting towns and going to the mountain. I love eating melon in summer, it's so refreshing! Nowadays I am working as a Communications Manager for an non-profit and it's being a wonderful experience! :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Travelling is one of my hobbies, so whenever I can I check out possible new destinations. I like meeting new traditions and cultures. I like going to restaurants and having a nice dinner with a good wine!
Chilling out with music sometimes is the best plan to do, though I also love going to concerts and live music places!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The first moment was in Paris, just in the garden located below the Sacre-Coeur. I could observe all the Parisian view from one of the highest places, listening to a very peaceful music which made me relax and enjoy the moment. It was a lovely moment.
The second one was in Den Haag. I had the chance to sleep in a skyline doing couchsurfing, and I could wake up in the morning and saw from the 21st floor the sunrise of the city.
Being in Lisbon, 7pm, at Praça do Comercio, the sky was waking up, the sunlight just started to rise up...and in front of me, the immensity of the Atlantic Ocean. It was a great moment!
