About Me


My main mission, be aware of every single day I live. Trying not to waste any day of this life. Pursuing my dreams and trying to make them reality. Growing as a person.


Probably,if my friends were asked about me, they would remark my love for travelling and my passion for discovering new things in this life. I suppose that they would mention my interest in knowing and interacting with other cultures.


Travelling is one of the best schools, if not the best, because one can learn about other´s in order to learn about oneself, growing as a person is my main aim in this life. Being introspective with one´s actions to improve everyday as a human being.


I have spent so many years living, working and travelling abroad. I do continue travelling although not as much as before. I have a special interest in Asian culture, including holistic sciences. I also have a keen interest in politics and I love reading and writing.

Music, Movies & Books

BOOKS: Buddha´s teachings from different masters. I-Ching. Ryszard Kapuscinsky. Krishnamurti. Stanislv Grof, Goenka. Thich Nhat Hanh. Hermann Hesse. Confucius, and many books about history.

MOVIES:The clokwork orange,The pianist, The shining. The Schindler´s list. The godfather...

MUSIC:Simon Posford. Shpongle. Raja Ram. Muse. Depeche Mode. Faithless. Metallica. AC/DC. Younger Brother. Paul Oakenfold. Placebo.Dj Jhonny Blue. Asura.Portishead.Propellerheads. Tiesto. Underworld..., and I would like to mention two tunes which really lift my emotions up; DEADMAUS5-The clockwork orange and DJ ROLANDO-The jaguar.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

It is quite difficult to remember only two or three amazing moments of my life, but I have some very good memories of meditating in Ladakh during the sunset with a buddhist monk from a wonderful place with all the Himalaya range of mountains as a background. I also remember doing a trecking, totally off the beaten track through the jungle of Laos, very close to Vietnam, we visited some villages where practically nobody visited them before, we were hosted in one of these villages by the locals, we had lunch with them, I will never forget the smell of the lunch, squirrel, this was a very good adventure.
Also, I would like to remark an unforgottable experience that I had in Palmyre,in Syria, just the year before the war started. I was walking alone at the ruins at last time in the evening, I was alone, and then there was a storm. I was hunging around with the headphones, listening an Asura's track, in the middle of the storm, I really thanked God for having me this wonderful experience, being alone in the middle of the ruins with that storm was something unbelievable, a real "peak experience".

Teach, Learn, Share

I prefer learning in life. I love sharing this life with noble people.

What I Can Share With Hosts

My best feelings and good will.
