Join Couchsurfing to see Alvaro’s full profile. It’s free!
Travel around the whole world like Willy Fog, even if I need a couple more days. I love meeting people from different cultures and learn about their lifestyle and traditions so my goal is to meet as many cultures as possible!
I am Alvaro, a 22 year old, born and raised in Madrid, Spain. I am talkative, easy-going, very respectful to others, clean and trustworthy. I am constantly trying to enlarge my list of experiences and knowdledge. I like hanging out with friends and doing sport (preferably soccer, basketball, paddle or table tennis).
I graduated in Law for the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in 2014. I finished my last year as a Erasmus student in Utrecht University (The Netherlands). Currently, I am a masters student at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. My masters is Spanish Language, aimed at teaching Spanish abroad, preferably in the USA. I will obtain my diploma in mid-June of 2015.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I am using Couchsurfing because I love meeting people from different cultures and learn about their lifestyle and the traditions of their culture. I believe the point of Couchsurfing is not having a cheap place where you can crash for a night, but about the enriching experiences you obtain from your stays.
Also, in my previous experiences, one of the most positive things is that I have gotten to know a lot more about the places I´ve visited that I had ever imagined, not only the touristy , but other really amazing places. Since I have only had great experiences so far, why not continue to use Couchsurfing?
I have couchsurfed in Krakow, Poland with a friend and Madison, Wisconsin, Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee and St. Louis, Missouri with my girlfriend.
I have never hosted any couchsurfer, however before using Couchsurfing I hosted several exchange students who stayed for a few months.
Exploring, meeting new people and sharing experiences, going on a run, hiking, biking, swimming, playing soccer, graffiti writing, going out for a drink, going to the movies, reading, studying and many others you will have the opportunity to find out!
