About Me

ABOUT ME

All??? It's gonna bit a bit hard... Let's just say open-minded and willing to discover and learn something every day.

PHILOSOPHY

Try to always find the good things about what happens to you. And try reallly hard not to be "alienated" (all of a concept...)

Intentar siempre ver el lado positivo de lo que te está ocurriendo. E intentar fuertemente no volverte "alienado" (todo un concepto...)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Trying to make the visitors' stay as good as possible! So they could have an excellent trip in the "ardent city" and tell other people that Liège is worth being visited, even if it's not in the top 5 of belgian destinations in the tourist guides!!! For those who are interested as well in the human discovery than in the historical discoveries (which we have as well, of course, have you ever wondered what was the Principauté de Liège? ;-) ).

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

All of the experiences were very nice

Interests

tango, languages, people, cinema, music, having a walk in nature, good drink with good people, partying, having a nap in my hamaca in the sun,...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Amazing is a very relative word. Above all it's about sensations for me, witch is a very subjective matter
