About Me

Hi! I'm Gera and at the moment I'm studying engineering and living in Monterrey, Mexico.

One of the things I love since I was young enough to remember roadtrips is traveling. And with traveling there's always the privilege of learning and expanding the frontiers, not only the physical ones.
I consider a privilege to also be a local and show the local culture to visitors, it's a cool way to get to know better about myself.

I consider myself a guy curious about everything that grows him as human. I play the guitar or the piano when I don't find a way to express some things. I'm in a perpetual quest of improving trough habits such as reading, meditation and outdoor activities such as hiking or biking, I love hiking mountains!

Astronomy is one of my passions and space exploration is the field I feel the happiest working on (and to talk about).

If you are reading this, thank you for doing so and I hope to meet you sometime, somewhere.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To learn from many people as possible and the landmarks of their planet.
