About Me

"For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move."

Check 'My Home'. That's where I live now. I understand that is not for everyone. Unless you are a bit adventurous, this place might not be for you.

I am extremely easy going and open-minded, with a big sense of humor. Just like you, my appetite for travel is endless. I found that sharing travel adventures with other people makes them much more interesting.
Who doesn't live imaginary adventures in their dreams?


"Por mi parte, viajo no para ir a ninguna parte, sino para ir. Viajo por el bien de los viajes. El gran asunto es moverse."

Mira 'Mi Hogar'. Ahí es donde vivo ahora. Entiendo que no es para todo el mundo. A menos que seas un poco aventurero/a, este lugar podría no ser para ti.

Soy muy tranquilo y de mente abierta, con un gran sentido del humor. Al igual que tú, mi apetito por viajar es interminable. He descubierto que compartir aventuras con otras personas las hace mucho más interesante.
¿Quién no vive aventuras imaginarias en sus sueños?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I come from a culture where hospitality is a way of life. My grandmother, living in a province in Argentina, had her house full of guests most of the time.
One memory I have engraved is about a German traveler who came to set camp in the park where we were spending the evening. I'm talking when I was about eight years old around 1980. My grandmother invited him home (she wasn't going to take no for an answer). He spent a couple of days narrating in great Spanish his motorcycle adventure from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego.
Her home was a magnet for friends and family. I remember the mattresses covering every inch of her living room.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Back in 2009 I started a six month trip through 13 countries with my motorcycle. Here's proof that those dreams can come alive for everyone. Trust me, if I did it, anyone can do it. Yes, regardless of what my mom says, I am not that special.
Life was not meant to be lived still:


En el 2009 empecé un viaje de seis meses a través de 13 países con mi motocicleta. Aquí está la prueba de que los sueños se pueden volver realidad para todos. Confía en mí, si yo lo hice, cualquiera puede hacerlo. Sí, independientemente de lo que dice mi mamá, yo no soy tan especial.
La vida no está destinada a ser vivida en cámara lenta:
