About Me


Travel, have fun, make new friends...


Professional, independent, friendly, easygoing, openminded, environmentalist, beach lover.


1- Try to be good one day at the time, but every second of the day.
2- In my life I am the chooser


Do I say "Look what life is doing to me"?
Or do I say "Look what I am doing to LIFE"?

There is power in CHOOSING. There is special power in knowing I am the chooser at every moment, in every situation.
Even when I do not take action, even when I do not make a decision, I am choosing not to decide,I am choosing not to take action.
At every moment I choose who I keep company with - or not to keep company.
I choose what I learn - or not to learn anything.
I choose how I spend my time - including choosing to not choose. In life I choose my mentors - or not to have a mentor, not to admire and emulate anybody, not to ask for help.
When I go out the door, I turn right or left, or go straight ahead. The path I take can influence my whole life.
I can even choose not to go out at all.
Most importantly, I choose which ideas, actions, foods, drinks, substances I say "NO" to and which I say "YES" to.
I teach myself a thousand times a day to make brilliant decisions - or not.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I want to host people in CR and help them to see this paradise, while I also keep discovering it myself ...
Also, I like to travel to other places of the world...


I have hosted more that 70 couchsurfers in my place during the last 9 years, couchsurfing is a great experience, specially for my fiends and parents...
