About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Going with the flow.

ABOUT ME

I am a relaxed, 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 till the point that they have become my biggest passion, specially rock climbing and hiking.

I love and respect animals deeply.

One of my current goals is to become a Spanish teacher and to be a good one!

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 couple of 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.

Interests

My family, Nature, the outdoors, travelling, hiking, canyoneering and rock climbing, camping, yoga, animals, cooking, eating, handcrafts, friends, languages, horse riding, slack-lining, reading, art, music, red wine, the sun, the ocean, chocolate, adventures, adventures, adventures...

Music, Movies & 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, Jack Johnson, Dave Matthews band, Iron & Wine, Ben Harper, Younder Mountain String Band, Fink, Mecano...

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, juggling, fire spinning...
