CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy the lightness of being.

ABOUT ME

Feeling tired of my white collar kind of life back in Buenos Aires, I just quit my job and started my trip around the world. First, I headed to beautiful New Zealand, where I lived for a year, and from where was able to explore amazing Asia (First trip included SEA, HK and Macau). Then I had the pleasure of living in wonderful Australia, where I stayed for a year and a half. Next chapter was in Taiwan, where I stayed for six unforgettable months, went back to Oz and now I'm back in BA planning my next trip.
I love backpacking, reading, watching movies/documentaries (not only American...), sports (football, running, hiking, etc) and specially, helping people, so, that's why I joined CS. Hope to see you around!

PHILOSOPHY

A

Open minded
Taking Couchsurfing spirit as a personal way of being.

Por qué estoy en Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

When in Buenos Aires, I help CSers who were willing to know the city, its people, our culture.
While travelling, I try to make people know about Couchsurfing, so I spread the word...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

A friend of mine told me about his experience couchsurfing around Europe and that was it, I knew I had to be a part of it.
Hope one day to be able to host fellow couchsurfers (I definitely will as soon as I'm back to Argentina)

Intereses

People
And I really enjoy reading a good book (I'm reading 万延元年のフットボール - The Silent Cry by Kenzaburō Ōe, at the moment) and hope to write one myself someday, practicing any kind of sport; since I´ve lived a nomadic life for quite a while, anything related to alternative ways of life, enviromental sustentability, etc. and I´ve been watching a lot of Asian films lately (If you are in Sydney, do not miss the Korean film night on Thursdays, organized by the Korean Culture Center).

Música, películas y libros

Everything that makes you think.
Books: Spartacus (H. Fast), Kanikosen, Fight club, Tropic of Cancer, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Lord of the flies, The Drowned and the Saved, 1984, Animal farm, Norwegian wood etc, etc.

Algo asombroso que he hecho

The very idea of being hosted by someone, at his/her home... amazing.
Been hosted four times now. :) :) :) :) To my great hosts.

Enseñe, aprenda, comparta

I believe that learning someone else's language means to open the gates to an entire culture, to a world to be discovered.
Creo que aprender el idioma del otro significa abrir las puertas a un nueva cultura, a un mundo por ser descubierto.

I would love to speak Mandarin (doing my best right now

Willing to share my world if you are willing to share yours too :p
