About Me


I am a Passionate Traveler,Dreamer,Learner, Agronomist Engineer, Adventurer, Reader, Blogger, Global citizen. Interested in travelling, cultures, books, people, blogs, Innovation, History, Geopolitics, Management, Emerging markets, Asia, Balkans, Eastern Europe....


I am an enthusiastic and passionate spanish traveler,entrepreneur and engineer. In my opinion the life is a big trip and to be traveler is an attitude. I like to know places, cultures and people around the world.

Backpacker for ever. I was Travelling in a Round the World Trip for 15 months (Asia, Australia, New Zealand and USA), I was doing as well some special journeys as Transiberian railway (Russia, Mongolia and China) and part of the Silk Road (Uzbekistn and Kyrzgistan). I like to travel around Eastern Europe and the old Iron Curtain, the Balkans are probably the most attractive area for me in Europe. I love the Mediterranean feelings of Italy, Portugal and my country Spain. I love to travel.

Discover new things, culture, people,places and feelings is a passion for me . I like open minded people. Always a pleasure to be with a good book, cold beer a good speech and a nice girl. There are a lot experiences, adventures, people, cultures around and for sure that I want to know some of that during my Life´s journey....

The Life is the big treasure,this is the reason because i am looking for places,people,cultures,maybe is only that I am looking for inside myself....I do not know...
