I like travel, hiking in the mountains, ski, practise ioga, read, learn, dance, sing, whistle, play, laugh... Discover the world, but also spend long moments with my friends...
I love: mountains, trees, stones, books, friends, tea, beer, wine, yogurt, tomatoes, maps, compass, owls, witches, angels, devils, black color, sun, moon, snow, energy, freedom, traditional festivals...
Don't like: lies, snakes, pink color, dirt, violence, wars, ... Sorry, but I hate cooking!
The one that I like more is to hug everybody!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach about many things of Catalonia: history, geography, interesting places, legends... and, of course, our languaje: catalan. But also spanish or a little bit of occitan.
I want to learn more about myself through other persons. Everybody teaches me things every day, and sometimes in the most unsuspected way!
And I need to improve my english, my italian and my french!!
