PS:had trouble with CS location 1 year ago when i went to Galapagos and Colombia, I am in Montreal until january 15th 2015...then ill be in Philippines for a while :) 3 months + and can meet and perhaps Host aswell
I travel since im 18 with friends or on my own! I love to lead a healthy life style and do sports such as snorkelling,soccer,basketball and so on. I love to discuss with people, learn and share about life experiences. Understand the world where we live and .e: by my own eyes how people are and act all around the globe.I speak a few languages, i believe when you visit a country you should learn as much as possible the language of your host not only for a respect matter but also because this will bring you to another level as a foreigner and youll be more adapt to share and learn
Travel! It will open your eyes on the world where you live. It will show you how unacceptable some things are. It will teach you how you should act toward living in different countries and why. It will give you thousands of stories to tell you friends or your grand children one day. It will teach you why our earth is so great & important and why we all should take care of it as much as we can and get out of life's stereotypes already set by western society :) and how we are so lucky sometimes and we dont even realise it back home .
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I signed to CS when I was 19. Never used it though we did get some friends who were signed up to CS to stay at our place in Salvador,Brasil(was 21 at that time). They reminded us about CS and how we really should use it as we can meet really nice people through it...and here I am updating my account. Ill offer a couch/bed whenever I can, Ill also provide informations when needed and im always up for a coffee,drink or any interesting activity :)
I have surfed more then hosted due to my lifestyle. I really had great surfing experiences the few times i did it and would recommand it to anyone. Its really nice to see how CSers can get along very quickly and are open minded! I was part of a 12 CSers Christmas party in Puerto Galera,Philippines in 2011 and it was an amazing experience! Also met CSers in Botswana,Australia,Egypt,Boracay :)
I love travels, languages, culture, geography, healthy life style and most of what floats around those things. Since I stay 1 year in the Philippines I really got into snorkelling and plan on doing alot of that for a good while :)I also like to visit good museums or see a good movie to relax after a hot day!
Music, Movies, and Books
I always been a great fan of mafia movies with good actors such as Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci & all the others. I also enjoy documentaries and great acting movies - I prefer fact based movies then fantasy. & Travel movies of course (into the wild,the beach,motorcycles diaries,etc)I like many types of music from Arabic to Reggaeton passing by French music and American hiphop. I like a book that keeps you turning the pages until its over.
I love all kind of music but since my adolescence Rap&hip hop has taken a huge part of my listening, though with travelling my ears have opened themself to different kinds - Basicly I love good music. Arabic, Ivory coast, Zambian, Mauritius, Brazil, Pilipino, American, everything and everywhere there is good music!
I havent read so much lately...lazy me!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Ive been to many places in this world but the Galapagos Islands have to be the most gorgeous place Ive been ! (went at age 18..went back age 26..changed alot..id go with Philippines now lol for best spot :)
Im quiet happy my good friend Maximo put in my head the idea of travelling for 5-6 months to South America when we were 18...I took off college and did it...have been travelling since :)
Teach, Learn, Share
I like to talk with people, just walk in the streets meet someone and talk with him for a while and learn from him. Also sharing my life experiences if the person is interested
