About Me


convince 50 people to join and actively use CS!


I'm Catalan and after living in China for 9 years, traveling all around Asia and having the time of my life I decided to move to Mauritius looking for a more peaceful life and to enjoy that beautiful Island. After 2 years there I'm now in Limassol, Cyprus starting a new life with my 2 dogs. I do business with China, work in a Forex Company as CS representative dealing with angry Chinese clients, occasionally teach Chinese and Spanish and do some translating. I'm open-minded, easy going, gay and proud to be! I love travelling, and whenever I can, I enjoy hosting people or showing them around town.


Living for the moment - life is too short.
Carpe Diem.
Hakuna matata!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love meeting new people and exchanging my experiences both in living abroad and in travelling.


So far my CS experience has been great, both as a host and as a guest. I've hosted great people from who I learned new things. I would recommend it to anyone.
