About Me

***PLEASE see the MY HOME section for sleeping arrangements and situation!***
I prefer to host 2-3 nights. Last-minute requests are fine, especially if you have hosted a lot in the past!

Anyway, about me: Slow travel enthusiast. Translator. Open-minded.

I have lived in three continents, overstayed visas, fallen in love abroad, survived broke on the road, watched the sunset on opposite sides of the planet, and loved every minute of it all. My superpower is adaptability.
I'm a Latin American with poor dancing skills, a Colombian with no love for bachata nor any interest in drug lords. I prefer a pogo over a dance floor, freedom over money, stories to tell over stability to flaunt. CouchSurfing has been a great tool in achieving an ever more interesting life so far, making possible to interact with awesome people I would not meet otherwise.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I host and surf as often as possible now; this year has been really active!
I've hosted a few amazing people back in Colombia and Beijing, now living and hosting wherever I am. I try to couchsurf every time as experiences everywhere have been great so far. I also love CS meetings anywhere I go.

Interests

Music, science, geeky talks, writings, genuine people, new foods.

Music, Movies, and Books

Punk, indie, ska, all their hybrids.
Good pop, jazz, Colombian folklore, etc.
Any film that makes me feel something. There aren't many out there.
As for books, think Murakami as much as short stories.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

From climbing 5000 m mountains to getting lost in the Venezuelan jungle to catching poison dart frogs in Colombia to diving in Caribbean islands to living homeless in Hong Kong to promoting anarchy in China to hitchhiking from Panama to NYC... I'm sure we can share a few anecdotes.
Also, please include the word gopher on you request so I know you read my profile at least, it's rude not to!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'll help you plan your local trip as much as I can, and join you if I have time.
I can teach you some Spanish and practice English with you. Colombia is great, I'll tell you a lot about mine and other countries. I love cooking with others, perhaps you can show me some of your favorite dishes from back home? I play some instruments, so maybe we can jam.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Time is the most precious gift a person has to offer.
