About Me


Sharing life experiences with other CSers


I'm Sergio, Bolivian, explorer, CSer.

"Paceño" proud of been born in one of the most beautiful, culturally richest places and one of the 7 WONDER CITIES. IT Engineer with a full time job for now, but dreaming of escaping routine someday, leaving everything behind and explore the world once again.

I can't resist chocolate in all of its shapes and flavors. I refuse to start a day without a cup of coffee and I think the best way to end it is with friends around a bottle of wine. I like to run marathons as a stress reliever.

I'm a passionate football fan, even though I can't play it so good. I enjoy watching it and won't miss a match of my favourite team in the world, Bolívar. Feel free to join me if you think you are ready to experience South American football fever.

A couple of years ago I had the crazy idea of visiting 25 European cities in 8 months, best experience ever! Luckly I travelled enough to say that the best part of trips are not the places we find in a travel guide, but the experiences we share with local people and seeing their home towns from their perspective. That's the point of travelling!

Even though I live in La Paz almost all my life and walk through it's crazy and magical streets everyday, somehow it always manages to show me a new amazing point of view. That's why I will never get tired of showing my home town to CSers, just as a way to thank it for all that it has given me.


"Don't listen to what they say...go see"
