About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I am carrying out my second hitchhiking trip around Europe.The first one alone. I left Madrid the 8th of Febreaury and I expect to hit the road during aproximatly 4 months. So I hope to see you out there maybe as my host or maybe just as a night-party buddy hahah I will try to use couchsurfing more than the first time. Otherwise I will do wild camping with my own tent which use to give me a warm shelter :)

ABOUT ME

Im a 26 yo guy and I use a clip as an earring xD. Im about to finish my studies as a mining engineer in Madrid. As I have some free time I want to make a profit of that and get to know as many people and places as I can before come back to my country. Im a easy-going, open minded person and I think you would have so much fun with me. But you will have to discover the rest!

PHILOSOPHY

"Amarrar or die", and also "costrear". I dont know how to translate this spanish concepts and I dont think so another spanish people can do it (it is my own slang). But I will be more than glad to try to explain what does that mean to my hosts. ;) I love laughing and joking as much as my poor body let me..so in short, everytime everywhere is a good chance to have fun , but when tired: take a break , take a "spanish siesta"!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

A friend (Rafa Rodriguez) introduced me to CS on September 2014 when I started my first hitchhiking route around Europe for 2months(from Helsinki to Ljubljana passing through Estonia,Latvia,Lithuania, Poland,Czech Republic, Austria, North Italy and Slovenia). Back then this was something totally new for me and by the moment that has not changed a lot cause i have just used it a few times along my trips, it was amazing though. Besides, right now I can only use it in one way (surfing) cause I am not independent yet .

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Up to this moment I have had only one couchsurfing experience and it was amazing ..my host was really really kind and close so I spent a good time with him.It was in Brno (Czech Republic)but I wasnt hosted alone cause I was travelling with a fellow, I think a Cs experience depends on a lot if you are alone or not. Maybe the next time i will try to do it just me.

Interests

Travelling,meeting new people,laughing, nature, sports (mostly football and basketball but not only these ones), breaking bad,POKER, KENDAMA (japanese toy so funny), Music Festivals (Electronics the most of them),Table games, Risk for example, "costrear"(you can ask me what does it mean when we met us ;) ),and of course BEER. In fact I want to try the most important beer brands in each country and little by little I am reaching it (Hopefully my liver can bear the rhythm )

Music, Movies, and Books

"Between books and movies I choose boobies".
I am a poet. xD Just kidding.
Actually I have not a lot of preferences about music cause i use to listen a lot of diferent kinds of music since Rock to Reggae passing through Techno. For example here there are some bands I like:
Bob Dylan, Creedence Clearwater,2pac, Soziedad Alkoholica,Madness,Motorhead,Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie,AC DC, Spice Girls( no way xD), Bob Marley,Ziggi Recado. Also classical music but it depends on what is my mood .

About my favourite books there a lot of but i could say The Hobbit , The Alchemist, The Lord of the Rings, The 8 (catherine neville) , 20.000 leagues under the see (Julio Verne but i dont really know the book's tittle in english), The endless story.

And about movies...so difficult the choice but if i would have to write my favourites may could be: The pursuit of happiness ,The big lebowski, The lord of the Rings,almost all the films of Marx Brothers, several from Woody Allen like for example Manhattan or Annie Hall,Gladiator, Living Las Vegas, Casablanca, 21 grams, The fight club, American History X, A Beautiful mind, What the dreams may come true, and many many more

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw once a friend of a friend eating a goat piece of shit because of a random bet.

I have played for six years in Real Madrid F.C.(since 1998 to 2004)

A lot of in crazy parties with not a very good results at least for my brain and my body, but those things are not for sharing by this way, would be better show you and explain you face to face with pictures or videos maybe hahha
But... as anticipation during my hitchhiking trip last year I met up with my fellow in Tallin for spending a week at a friends house and then starting our route from there to Slovenia. Well ,so the first night we went partying up there, finishing the party in the pub (around 5am) I didnt want to leave the pub so i stayed alone and I actually didnt realize that everybody had left to their homes including my fellows. So when I left the pub "a little bit happy" I was aware very quick that I was alone,almost pennyless, in a unknown city, and of course I had no fucking idea what was the way back home. Hooray for me!
So I was lost during aproximatly 12 hours wandering over the city searching my friends flat and asking everybody in my "perfect drunk Estii" for the addres I noted on a dirty small paper (nobody knows what I had written on it). But the best is while i was wandering and asking to the people where my addres was, i was invited for almost every single guy I asked (At least 3 becasuse there were pictures and videos of them on my phone next day)to take some beers on differents pubs in order to keep on with the party and i was even invited to a piece of pizza! xD (Estonian people were amazingly kind with me ) So finally after leaving the last pub (at 5.pm more or less) with the sun hiting my head (i remember that so well..)I walked 5 min and I suddenly appeared in front of my friends' flat...I HAD SURVIVED!! hahaha
