I'm a half spanish and french guy who discovers the pleasure to travel quite late and decided that most of the times is better and nicer to stay in a proper house instead of an hotel. I like nice, tidy and interesting houses and places to feel like home.
Since 3 years I'm living in Colombia, married with a marvellous women and with our little princess 7 years old, but previously I was growing up in Spain (Barcelona & Madrid) and living in Zurich (Switzerland) and time to time in Paris where part of my family lives. I did several travels around Europe but also I did a long journey of 7 months in New Zealand. I visit also some places in USA and Canada and South America.
For more than 20 years I used to work on entertaiment and show business as a Stage and Technical Production Manager for events, festivals, live shows and tv. I worked in Spain, Switzerland, France, Scotland, England and NZ .
Nowadays I'm turnig to a new profession related on turism. Colombia is a great place to visit and we have more and more visitors every year!
Being a Airbnb host at present time in Medellin where we live is perfect! I did Airbnb hosting at length in the past years when I was living in Barcelona (Spain) and also as a user in my journeys in Europe and USA and I really thing is a very good way to travel and offer/enjoy confortable stay to people.
