About Me


I am a fun and easygoing person who likes to be outdoors, loves hiking and ride a bike, loves spend hours in front of the sea and enjoy having fun and a good laugh. I love to read, travel (obviously), hanging out with friends or alone (and have a beer as well) or simply do nothing in rainy days.
I think that's a good summary.


"In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself." (Jiddu Krishnamurti)

"I hate circus. In fact, I hate all that enchants me and then goes away." (Caio Fernando Abreu)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love to meet people, love learn about other cultures, know other points of view about the life and about the humanity at all. The CS has allowed me open the door (literally!) to the world.


I received people in my apartment and were great times (I love to "present" my city to foreign people).
As visitor, I had two great experiences recently: in Montevideo (last Feb) and Barcelona (May 2013). I loved all my Couchsurfing experiences!!! :D
