About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Try to practise mosh pit in all continets...

ABOUT ME

I am a guy who was grown up on the Basque country and after living in Germany, Chile and China I have just arrived to Mexico city.

I do not want to describe myself because I cannot do it.

About couchsurfing, I can be a quite strange couchsurfer. I do not like to enter people's private life, is it why I never surf people's couch. I prefer to sleep in a hostel, but of course I really love to meet people and to share my experiences with them!

PHILOSOPHY

Enjoy your life as much as you can. one life, one chance. I think we have the opportunity lo live once, it it why we should enojoy it as much as posible.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have not been active until on this community but when I arrive home I will try to support it as much as posible. I try to take part in all events I really can go!

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SCENE!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have met several people but as I have explained before never surfed a couch. Maybe sometime I will start doing it but not yet...

Interests

I am interested in several things but the two most important things in my life (apart from family and friends) are traveling and music, and when I can mix both of them is like an orgasm... I really love to see how concerts in all over the world are. I am also really interested in social economy and politics, is it why I changed my studies from mechanical engineering to industrial engineering. I love technological things, but I prefer to take care of the other part of the engineering. I am really interested in cooperativism, democratic enterprises. I also love beer, I love to try beers from all over the world and better if they are home made beers!!

Music, Movies & Books

I am crazy fan of music, but I have to say that I am really close minded when listening to it. I listen from old reggae (Toot & the maytals, Desmond dekker...) to the most modern Ska. But if have to choose a style definively would be hardcore punk music, from the first Ramones, The clash, Cock Sparrer passing trough old school hardcore (Youth of today, Minor threat...) or New York classics (Agnostic front, Madball, H2O of course) to european hardcore punk like Misconduct,Death is not glamorous... to melodic hardcore (No use for a Name...) to most modern hardcore (Have hearth, Another breath) without forgetting about the music I was grown up with, spanish basque punk rock (Eskorbuto, La polla, kortatu...). I also like all music born from punk hardcore like crust, grind, d-beat, metalcore... although I do not listen to them very much. I support all type of DIY music, and love to go concerts even if they are not from my style just to support it.

About reading really I do not read too much books but I love to read articles on blogs and small fanzines normally about politics or music. I also like to compare different newspapers from all over the world to compare different opinions and try to discover the truth (although I have never found it yet...). I have to confess that I have read Harry Potter's books and I loved them...

About films I am kind of strange, I love to watch films but I never do that. Really few times I have done by myself but if I have to choose I love to watch documentaries and social content films.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn until I cannot more, like an overdose! I really love to do it.

I can teach several things, some basic guitar or bass (really basic and oriented to punk music), something about basque language or culture and of course I can introduce you to hardcore punk music if you want...
