About Me


I wanna meet nice people to hang out with, share my culture and language


Hi, I'm Daniel Upegui from Medellin Colombia, I'm an Electrical Engineer for now but I'm trying to decide if I wanna keep working as Engineer or switch into something else that can make me feel more motivated.

Recently came back to Colombia after living for 2 years in the Philippines and 4 months in USA.

I enjoy having a good talk while drinking some beers or coffee, I always wanna hear and share a good story.

I enjoy hanging out with interesting people, I'm a very talkative guy, but I'm good listener as well.

I'm always trying to do something new in order to find out new hobbies and adventures.

I consider myself very active and sporty and I like playing almost everything just for fun although I'm not good enough hehe, I've played ultimate Frisbee for the last 2 years and I'm up for any pickup game or throws.


The sky is the limit

Immerse your soul in love

Why I’m on Couchsurfing



My most recently CS experience has been in the Philippines, I attended some parties and some Ultimate Frisbee games with the Manila CS group.

My first expirence on CS was back in Colombia, I hosted for 2 days to one girl (Olga) and her friend (Charlie) from Florida, We really had fun hanging out together. We went around the city, parks, pubs, botanic garden... Now I could go to stay with them to Florida whenever I want :)

I also met two guys, Ian and Lean from Australia and Denmark, they were in Medellin for almost two months, we went out to drink beers, played paintball, attended concerts, parties in country houses, traveled to others Colombian cities.

I traveled to South Korea during summer 2013 and stayed with several CSers in Seoul and Busan, great experience and good new friends gained.


I like attending concerts and music festivals,football games, etc

I like sports in general but I'm not good enough in anyone, but I do it just for fun and to stay healthy. like swimming, ultimate Frisbee, biking, football.
