Обо мне

I'm a Spanish-Basque Atheist gay guy in my late-30s.

I'm generally kind, chatty, respectful and open-minded; but at the same time I love discussing about controversial topics and sometimes I can get a bit opinionated.

I love meeting new people, good conversation and learning from different cultures.

Favourite conversation topics include languages, politics, religion, history, food, art, sexuality, literature and nerdy stuff (video games, comicbooks, etc). I like being controversial on certain topics, but I never take it as something personal.

I love food and strolling in urban areas. I am a coffeeholic, a wine drinker and a heavy smoker.

I'm writing a blog about my passion: authentic Chinese restaurants http://cenaenelchinomisterioso.wordpress.com/

Что привело меня на Couchsurfing

When travelling to Osaka, I contacted with a Japanese guy (not by CS), who told me something that impressed me: "I have been helped by other people when I was travelling abroad, and now I am going to help you." Then I have been helped by several people and hosts and that's the spirit I try to spread now.

Since then I have hosted some 40 people and I have been hosted by some 10, and most of them have been really good experiences, so I plan to keep doing it in the future.

I organize the weekly CS meeting in my city and attend other CS activities in the area. I am quite active in the forums.

I have written a (not-so) short guide about Bilbao with a lot of recommendations and all my favourite places. Ask me about it!

I host people now and then and meet travellers to show them around.


Plenty of them: exotic food (especially Chinese!), video games, religions, languages, TV (including reality shows), history and foreign cultures, politics, comicbooks, art, literature, board and card games... and so on!

Классная вещь, которую я сделал(-а)

Nothing really amazing to date, but:

Being the only foreigner guy in the secretive gay bars of Osaka was awkward but cool.

Tricking a Muslim friend into eating pork was delightfully evil.

Celebrating Thanksgiving for the first time in Sapporo with my first CS hosts was great.

Учу, учусь, делюсь опытом и информацией

I can teach some Spanish and a bit of Basque.

I would love to learn more about languages, cooking, card and board games and many other things!

We can share recipes, internet bookmarks, movies/TV/books/music/comics/videogame recommendations, personal experiences, different viewpoints on controversial issues and travelling tips!
