About Me


Try to make this journey called 'life' an unforgettable one!


I consider myself a traveller who enjoys visiting local attractions before tourist attractions, and meeting locals is always very interesting. That is why I completely share CS's concept of hospitality.

I have been living in different parts of Europe (and Canary Islands, an extension of Europe), now settling in Barcelona.

When on the road I like to deal with someone I can rely on, not "every-second-mind-changing" kind of people.
I am not using CS as a dating site, so do not bother sending me a message if your aims are different from the CS phylosophy.

Please make sure you read my profile before sending a request, and understand this is not about getting free accomodation (you can use hostels or Airbnb for that), it is about sharing.

Important: if you go to Tenerife just avoid going to Loro Parque.
Here is why:

Also, I wish people would stop booking elephant rides and visit to tiger sanctuaries in some countries. The animals in these venues are heavily abused until they learn to obey for our own entertainment. Such a practice takes away their natural attitude, and their soul. These animals belong to the wild, period.

At the moment I am living in Barcelona, hosting cultural events through meetup:


Be closer to yourself.
