About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Experimenting life through nature, senses, people, feelings, freedom, art....

ABOUT ME

I am a curios person, always wondering and thinking about so many things. Witty and clever, but frankly quite absent minded. That's precisely what makes me unique and funny! My regular state and expression is happiness: in my eyes and in the smile I use to have.
Also I am an open minded, balanced and a respectful person.

PHILOSOPHY

Thirsty of new ways of life. Looking for experiences, senses, feelings and freedom.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Unfortunately I don’t have enough space in my place to host, but I am always pleased to meet travelers and hanging around with them in my city.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Mostly great. I particularly love the reaction and comments of travelers when I show them Mexican places, customs and food by first time.

Interests

As an art and objects restorer, I particularly love and have knowledge about material culture of the cities and towns; and also I really enjoy meeting interesting people, trying new food, beeing surrounded by nature and wandering around my own city, country and the world.
Other things I like are music, movies, reading and knowing about lot of subjects (art, history, science, politics, culture, and whatever incites my curiosity). And certainly I am always pleased sharing what I know!

Music, Movies & Books

I really get transport by the music. I think It explains myself:
-Boards of canada
-Stereolab
-Air
-Sonic Youth
-Tricky
-Animal Collective
-Bjork
-Múm
-Broadcast
-Beck
-Nick Drake
-Belle and sebastian
-Goldfrapp
The movies and books I like:
-Jan Svankmajer's
-Kubrick's
-Michel Gondry's
-Darren Aronofsky's
-Little Nemo in slumberland
-Terry Pratchet's
-Lewis Carrol's
-Michael Ende's
-Hermann Hesse
-Aldous Huxley
-Ray Bradbury

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Seeing stars and swimming in Veracruz jungle with my friends.
Visiting the church of San Juan Chamula in Chiapas, a very particular place where you can see amazing and strange ritual practices.

Teach, Learn, Share

Since I am involved in cultural studies and work, I could be an excellent guide to explain Mexican museums, cities and towns... That's the subject I know and love!
I would like to learn sports held in nature (trekking, camping, rafting and so on), cooking, languages...

Countries I've Visited

Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Mexico

Countries I've Lived In

Mexico
