About Me

It's very difficult to write about myself. Only that i am a social guy who like to meet people from all around the world, their Culture/Folklore&way of life. I always try to enjoy the life as much it's possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

C'S is an incredible way to meet new people, to know about their Culture/Folklore, their lifestyle and Philosofy in esence, but overall to help them, put my little grain to make a better world, no matter where they come from. To be useful for the others is a great sensation. I say be useful, not used, cos' "help" doesn't means that i "have to", or to think my place is a free hostel to stay the whole day and night layed in the couch ( if you go to music festivals, great for you, but please, after take rest in a hostel not in my livingroom, (based in real facts) or think that everything is allow and others will clean and support it. I know it's logical things, but if i say it's because it has already happened to me and i don't want to happen It again.
Unfortunately in recent times our great Couchsurfing Comunity it's increasing a lot with new members who believe we are like a Hostel Services and tour guide but without paying, all for free and the only thing to do is send a request, that's all, and generally by Copy/Paste, even they once called me Manuela (woman's name)....


I am interesting in live, try to enjoy the life and make easy the relationships with the others. . I loved travel but i need work hard to do it and when i host someone i always imagine that's me travelling and i try to give my best to my guest. The Golden rule: Do to others what you want them to do to you. I Believe in KARMA.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like any kind of good music Rock, Hip-Hop, Alternative, Jazz, etc. Many books and Authors: The Name of the Rose (Umberto Eco) The Pillars of the Earth (Ken Follet), García Márquez, Galeano, Quevedo for example. Poems, Classical literature, Sci-fi, etc. About cimena many movies also, The Goodfather (Francis Ford Coppola) Full Metal Jacket ( Stanley Kubrick). Memento ( Christopher Nolan) LOTR trilogy,. Robert de Niro is my favourite actor.
But there are so many good and different Musicians, Writers, Books, Movies, Serials, documentals ( CULTURE) to choose...fortunately.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I lived one and a half year in India.. I have played with little tiger in Thailand, but in Tiger Monastery, NOT with drug one on the streets. ÑI 'll never support people who make money with doped, tortured or abused animals, NEVER, I love so much the animals. So, dont ask me if i like bullfight, the answer is NO, obviously, and, of course, don't even ask me to take you to visit the Bullring, please.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm spanish teacher then i can give you some vocabulary ir grammar of spanish language or interested tips for basical earners. I can give the timetable of main monuments and tips and info about what to see in the city outside the turistic places. Also where it can go to eat the tipical andalusian/spanish homemade dishes in the town centre without spend a lot of money. Also where to see a good flamenco show or the info about how to book the tickets to visit the real alcazar and the cathedral. And If i have the free time, of course, i could show you the city and tell stories and history about it. So,the only requirement that i ask is to write the word luty at the begining of your request, please, or i will not accept it, cos' logically if some person don't spend five minutes on me, reading my full profile, at least, to know me better and the home's rules, why should i allow them to spend two days (or more) in my home? Because (it's obvious) their are not interested in my person, culture or folklore but only to have a place to stay to sleep, cook, wash and take a hot shower and maybe a guide tour also . Try to be a helpful person doesn't means to accept copy&paste request.
But fortunately i found marvelous and amazing persons on this Our Great Comunity and i still hosting persons all around the world. People that knows me says i cook nice and tasty dishes, so we can share recipes also.
I teach what i know i learn what i dont know and share my experiences....

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can help to improve your spanish language/vocabulary , i can cook spanish and italian homemade dishes for you. My help with all hometask and total collaboration for any matter that my host may need. Share a bottle of wine or beers or coffes while we have good, interesting and enjoyable conversations about the world, Literature, History, Culture, Folklore, Lifestyle, Philosophy, Cinema, Music, Sports, or any other topic that we like, guaranteed. Also share my travels experiences or residence for more than a year in India, England, Switzerland, Holland or Colombia, with many interesting and funnys anecdotes:):):). And the doors of my house always opens, of course, in Sevilla (Spain) or Bucaramanga (Colombia).
