About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy life, travel more, laugh, and learn as much as I can. I would like to make friends, but I have come to realize that is quite hard to do here in Bogotá.

ABOUT ME

Laid-back and easy-going, somewhat crazy some say, love jokes, caring, no drama. I love hanging out and listening to music every time I get a chance. I love walking around the city, but sometimes I prefer quiet places like mountains and lonely roads. I also like attending gigs and sharing a few beers with people who are fun and interesting to talk to. I enjoy the company of people who don't take themselves too seriously and like to laugh lots.

PHILOSOPHY

Only do things that make you happy.
Happiness is better when shared.
There's beauty in simplicity.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love meeting travellers and going out for a meal and some drinks, visiting some places in the city or its surroundings. Since I don't have a place of my own yet, I can only meet up.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

No experience hosting or being hosted yet, but I've met a few travellers from Canada, Germany , the US, and London, and it's been great. Can't wait to do it more, and be able to host and be hosted in the future.

Interests

Beer, coffee, making friends, learning stuff, languages, movies, music, rock bars, hiking, reading...

Music, Movies, and Books

Off the top of my head... Pantera, Slipknot, Tool, A Perfect Circle, Slayer, Iron Maiden, the old Alice in Chains, Down, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Police, Iced Earth, Danzig, (some) Staind, Bob Dylan, Ramones, QOTSA, Kyuss, Mad Season, Guns N' Roses, Maverick Sabre, Jack Johnson, Metallica, The Doors, and many others...

I really enjoy some suspense, psychology thrillers, and comedies. Some of my favorite ones are Memento, Fight Club, The Sandlot, I Love You Man, The Others, and the Harry Potter franchise.

I enjoy reading quite a lot, and I hope to write my own book someday. I've read a few books, such as: El Alquimista (Paulo Coelho), El Túnel (Ernesto Sabato), Once Minutos (Paulo Coelho), The Black Cat (Edgar Allan Poe), The Picture of Dorian Gray (Oscar Wilde), The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde (Robert Louis Stevenson), The Great Gatsby (F. Scott Fitzgerald), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (J. K. Rowling), The Day of the Jackal (Frederick Forsyth), Eyes Wide Open (Andrew Gross), Gone for Good (Harlan Coben), El Psicoanalista (John Katzenbach), Jane Eyre (Charlotte Brontë), The Little Mermaid (Hans Christian Andersen), and some others.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I think the most amazing thing I've done (so far) was going against all odds and just taking the leap of faith, which made me believe in myself like never before. Time is the only thing that's ours, but it's also one of those things in life you can never get back.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach Spanish and English, and I can also teach people about Latin culture.

I love listening to people, and I love taking in the good things they have to offer. I always love learning about other languages, as well.

I love hanging out, drinking beer and having good conversations. I hope to be able to offer a couch in the future.

What I Can Share with Hosts

For now, sadly, I don't have a place to share, but I'm there to help around, definitely.

Por ahora, lamentablemente, no tengo un lugar que compartir, pero definitivamente puedo ayudar en lo que pueda.
