About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be happy and travel around the world! :)

ABOUT ME

haha, well...I have to make some phone calls to answer this question. ;)
OK, I did it. This is the summary:
It's simple: I always have a smile and a hug to offer, is the easier way I have to express myself.
I consider myself a person full of life and energy, honest, loyal, sensitive, responsible and with a great "common sense".
I'm a passionate of living new experiences, getting to know people and have a deep social sensibility.

PHILOSOPHY

We only have one life to live, and only one Planet to live in...we should focus on being happy and leave this place better than we found it.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I feel delighted of being a host and hanging out with people from another cultures who are visiting Barcelona!
...definetely is not the same thing to get to know a place guided by the touristic guide books, than by people who live in it everyday!

Interests

I love to travel. New experiences and different cultures really attract me.

Sharing with people is one of the things that I enjoy most in life. Every person is an open book and has something to teach me. I truly believe that people don't cross in my life by chance, and that I have always to learn about those who cross my path.
I'm in love with the nature and makes me happy to dive and to trek, to contemplate sunrises and sunsets, to admire a landscape.
But in the another hand, I like the city...and all the energy concentrated in one single area. The mixture of cultures, the nightlife and traditions.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: I love any kind of music, from Classical to Salsa, including jazz, bossanova, rock, R&B, ethnical, reggae and a long etc...
Movies (my top 10): Amélie, The Game, The Usual Suspects, Big Fish, Matrix, Ethernal sunshine of a spotless mind, Nueve reinas, The hours, Into the wild, La science des rêves...and much more!!
Books/comics: En busca del tiempo perdido, El perfume, Los detectives salvajes, Metamorfosis, Asterix y Obelix, Quino (Mafalda), Las venas abiertas de América Latina, etc...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

It's difficult to make a choice...but here I go:
1. On Gili Trawangan (Indonesia), I lived the experience of having 2 starry skies: one in the sky (an unbelievable beautiful starry night), and the another in the sea and on the beach: There were millions of plancton in the water and sand, all of them shinning. Having the two starry simultaneous scenarios was simply sublime.
2. I took part in a nudist photo session made by the photographer Spencer Tunick in Caracas (Venezuela). We were about 1,500 people posing. The collective feeling of freedom, and the satisfaction of having defeated my fears, made it an enriching and unforgettable experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach to dance caribbean rithms, like salsa, merengue, and some more
I'm wide open to learn almost whatever somebody would like to teach me.
Share?...Do you want the half of my sandwich? :)
