About Me

World traveler now living in Bologna doing aPHD, I can't believe I have settled down in a new place again, I have traveled 55 countries and can't wait to keep traveling after all this COVID situation. I travel because I love exploring new cultures. you can see my journey in @ptmrafael on IG.

My name Rafael, a Peruvian guy, architect by profession, photographer by addiction, outgoing and friendly person as a life statement.

I love art, architecture,photography and design! I have lived in 5 places already; Hanoi is so far my favorite.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I started using couchsurfing by a recommendation of a friend from NY that I met in Rome, and it was such a nice experience during all my trip in Europe.
I'm here to meet diferent cultures, make new friends and learn about other people, also I'm here to help back, 'cause many couchsurfers helped me before when I was traveling


Photography, walking around the city, sightseeing,learnig about architecture, traveling and meeting new people.
