About Me


Discover, enjoy, create ... grow!


Easygoing, like to travel and meet people from every culture, country and background. I appreciate sharing experiences and tastes.


I live my life to experience all, to feel human, to create, to grow personally and professionally .... to discover, and show or tell others the things I've been able to do and see in order to spread the good things that can be done around the world.

I try to find the positive side to everything I see, and try to make every experience an enjoyable one.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I want to be an active member of CS, show the community what I think is better to see in every place I've been to. Also I expect to participate and get guidance from the community around the world.


Casa Montepalacio(Moustafa) gatherings,


I like going out on the weekends, to bars, have some drinks with friends. I realize that by being Colombian I tend to like a dancing environment, salsa, merengue and other afro-caribbean rythms. I also enjoy electronic music, live music, reggae or just chilling at a park with good weather, good food and great company.

I'm also a sports fanatic, I really like football/futbol/soccer, kite surfing, tennis .... and of course traveling, food and the social life.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music from the world! ... reggae, rock, electronic, Spanish, Latin-American, Indian.

Movies: L'auberge Espagnol, City Island, Matrix, trainspotting

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The way nature behaves creating perfect things for us to enjoy, I have learned to respect it even more.

The differences and similarities between Europe and the American continent.

The sea and the underwater life!

Teach, Learn, Share

I like sports, tennis is my strength so I can definitely teach this. I could teach some spanish and the interesting differences between the way it is used around Latinamerica and Spain. I can share values from my culture, and can also play a bit of guitar!
