Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would be glad to show my city (Bilbao) and the sourroundings to different people coming to visit us.
I usually join different events as the Soirée Française or Language Exchange in Bilbao.


i don't have a great CS experience, but i usually join different events, as the languages Exchange or Soirée Française. i' m really keen on improve different languages, and above all, english and french.
I would like to travel and meet new coushsurfers, as i think it's really interesting site to meet and know very interesting people.


I'm always trying to learn new things. I love travelling (as the most that frequent this site ;p) but I've still too many destinations and experiences in my list of "things to do".
I want to do little bike week-end trips and discover the places close to Bilbao. Sometimes we take planes, or trains to travel but it has not to be an essential thing.
Doing sports: running, riding bike, basket...learning new languages: french, German, english, polish or italian.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm not very fanatical of the cinema by the way, but i really love music, bands as Coldplay, Killers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, but another indie-rock or indie-pop bands are always usually sound on my iPod.
With regard to the books, i like reading books about true stories of the WWII, as it is a period of the history which i would like to know more.

Teach, Learn, Share

I work as maths, physics or chemistry teacher, but i think it's not very funny for you ;p so i think i can't teach you very much. Maybe i can show you how to cook a good spanish tortilla!! We can share our experiences and i'm sure that i will be able to learn a lot from you!
