About Me


Pursue voluntary projects in Argentina :)


One should not brag about himself. Write a message, and you'll get the idea of who are you facing.


Dance like no one is watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like no one is listening,
and live like it's heaven on earth!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Every time I travel, I surround myself with couchsurfers. I believe that people who participate in this community are usually much more open minded and spontaneous than the average person in our society. Thus, I always enjoy new meetings, cultures and languages.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Thanks for visiting my profile... I'm sure you are a great person and there's a good chance we are gonna meet in the future :)

So even though I have no doubts regarding the greatness of your personality, it's important to understand that as open and spontaneous as we can be, we should never forget that all people are different in their own way and that each person has his own private expectations of life, his own pack of ethics and his own unique experiences from the past. Thus, it's not to be taken for granted that reaching the same wavelength will occur without any mutual efforts of communication. Communication is everything. My only bad experiences on this platform have happened due to the lack of it. I hereby kindly request that each and every one of you give your best during our time together by being open and clear about things that bother or annoy you, things that you'd prefer to have seen happen differently, but also things that perhaps made you feel special and happy..

Obviously, body language is a factor and I'd even consider myself as one who isn't too bad at reading it, but for all the different types of human beings in this world, there are just as many types of body language, so we can't expect people to understand each other while keeping our mouths shut. Read some of my neutral references and you'll find perfect examples of amazing experiences with great people, which have turned out to be a bit less memorable due to the inability of a person to speak out.

So please, let us do each other a great favor, let us have amazing time together, enriching our cultural knowledge and our lives, let us become better people through the experiences we share and let us never forget to let each other know how we feel about these experiences!
