About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finding a mission

ABOUT ME

I am a spontaneous and amicable person who finds pleasure and enjoyment in the simple things in life.

I have a great desire of learning and experiencing new things.

In recent years I have discovered Nature and the outdoors in a total different dimension until the point that they have become my biggest passion, specially rock climbing and hiking.

I love and respect animals deeply. They are the only beings that never fail getting a smile out of me even at bad moments. Hanging out with them is enough to bring me joy.

Above all I enjoy being on the mountains or by the sea, on my own or with good company.

That is a partial idea of me...

PHILOSOPHY

There is a quote of Mahatma Gandhi that I truly like: "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I heard about couchsurfing a while ago, and I decided to join a few years ago. It has given me just positive experiences.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Every experience I have had so far it has been wonderful. It has totally changed my idea of traveling and I have realized how much better is the experience when you get to share it with locals, have the possibility to submerge in their worlds for a while and get to know them. I have had the chance to meet many open-minded, trusting, kind, generous and wonderful people and I have been very lucky to become friends with several of them.

Music, Movies, and Books

I truly enjoy reading, whenever I start a book that I really like I read and read and read till I finish it all. Just to mention one: The Alchemist is one of my favourite books.

These are some of the music bands and singers that I enjoy: Manolo Garcia y el Ultimo de la Fila, Silvio Rodriguez, Great Lake Swimmers, Fleet Foxes, Eddie Vedder, Mumford & Sons, Jose Gonzalez, The Head & the Heart, Local Natives, The Tallest Man on Earth, Bon Iver, Ben Harper, Fink, Mecano, Clueso...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most exciting and interesting thing that I have done was a hitch-hiking/ camping trip around Northern/ Western Europe for about half a year. It was a time of many adventures and wonderful experiences, meeting great people and having good moments most of the time. Unforgetable.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would be willing to share anything I know. For example I could help anybody who wants to learn Spanish.

I would love to learn so many things that I would never end listing all: different languages, yoga, meditation, surfing, woodcarving, carpentry, diving, massage, playing instruments (like the harmonica and the banjo), glass-blowing, photography, iron work...
