About Me


Travelling and learning around the world looking for educational technology projects... and something else!!


I spent so many years at the university, studying and after that doing my PhD. After these great years it was time to do something different and discover the world, their people and trying to learn a little bit every day.

I like all kind of outdoor sports, travelling on a camper, photography, trekking... and when I have time, I enjoy cooking.


Take it easy and Aloha are the best two words that I learnt travelling and that describes how I see the life.

I also like that "Happiness is only real when shared" (as said in Into the wild), and Couchsurfing let me share this happiness.

Now, I'm traveling around the world, learning around the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I offer my couch to anyone interested, trying to answer every request and welcoming people that I meet during my travels. I really like to invite people to meet me again in Barcelona.


Very pleasant and satisfactory! It's a great idea and let me to know better each city, each country and their culture.

I also like people who believe in the project and had verified address.


Music, arts, ALL kind of outdoor sports, photography, cooking, and travelling.

I also like volunteer projects related with education and technologies.
