About Me

You can check all my trip in www.facebook.com/viajealavuelta or @viajealavuelta in Instagram

CURRENT MISSION
I started to travel with my brother. We did a world trip together, travelling during three and a half years around the world. Whenever we finished this trip, we decided to know deeply our own country and apreciate our things as we did with the rest. We did a six months trip around Uruguay, big cities and tiny villages, travelling through the people. After three and a half years of travelling with my brother ive started a new trip, just me, for another seven months. Ive worked in television, radio and now i am a travel blogger. I travel the world mixing tourism and writings in media about interesting stories. I love helping people who visit my country, meeting them to visit touristic and non-touristic places, share meals, stories and some drinks as well.

My mission: to get to every place that diserve to be visited, knowing local and other tourists, knowing history and having fun.

ABOUT ME
www.facebook.com/viajealavuelta - www.twitter.com/viajeaalavuelta - www.instagram.com/viajealavuelta - www.youtube.com/c/alavuelta I am an easy going guy from Uruguay. I enjoy everything, from having a deep conversation about the life to having fun in a night club, through doing extreme sports, visiting historic places, walking around the cities, sharing moments with people and more. Everything at all.

PHILOSOPHY
Hakuna Matata. This is our philosophy. "Hakuna matata" is a Swahili phrase (Kenyian language) that can be translated as "no worries". Its meaning is similar to the English phrase "don't worry, be happy". Thats all what we say about the way we want to and wish the others to live the life. It is too short to do every thing what diserves to be done, so we cant spend time worrying about complicated issues.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I’m looking to surf and we always couch when we are not travelling.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I surfed and hosted. In our city was difficult to host because we live with our parents and siblings but while i lived in Melbourne, Australia, was easier and we hosted a lot of people. Sharing is caring. We made heaps of new friends.
