About me

I am Argentinian, living in Faro, Portugal at the moment. I will begin a new trip to Eastern Europe in April. I work online as a teacher and translator, and I am also an amateur photographer and masseur.

I am also working on a new photo book, too. You can download my first photobook for free in the blog: https://wayfarerontheopenroadinenglish.wordpress.com/the-book/.

I still do not have an itinerary, I always prefer to allow it to reveal itself to me! But possible destinations are: Rumania, Poland, Russia, China and India. Anyone who wants to join in is welcome!

Some of the photos I took while travelling:


I am travelling on a very low budget now, but of course I always provide my own food and essential bus tickets, and I can cook pretty well so my hosts can expect to taste an interesting and funny mixture of Argentinian-Italian-low-budget food while I am around.

I have absolutely no problem in participating in any kind of activity that hosts can suggest and/or join in, as long as they are free or really low budget (I am expecting to make this journey last as much as possible so I have to make a real efficient use of the budget!).


Viajar (travelling), teatro (drama), arte (fine arts/drama), fotografía (photography), astronomía (astronomy), idiomas (languages), now learning about gardening (aprendiendo ahora sobre jardinería).

Lately I have become a masseur and I find it to be an activity that allows me to contribute to the physical and psychological wellbeing of people. And I really love that.

In short, I am very interested in everything that lifts me up and helps me expand in every way.

I listen to almost all kinds of music, though I have my favourites, of course, especially upbeat rhythms (flamenco, classical, rock, electronic).

I am interested in arts, mainly drama, cinema, fine arts and photography, a lot in Astronomy, and also in gardening and alternative health care techniques.

I am also a translator and teacher so I enjoy working as such because they give me a great opportunity to meet people.

I really enjoying doing a lot of different activities, the only thing they have in common is that they allow me to meet people, contribute to the well-being of the planet, have fun and also earn my living.

Some favorite books: "The Little Prince", A.S. Exupery; "Leaves of Grass", W. Whitman; "Essays", R.W. Emerson; all of Rilke's works, Poems by E.E. Cummings; short stories by J. L. Borges; "Alice in Wonderland", Lewis Carroll; "The Power of Now", E. Tolle; all books by Jules Verne; "Cosmos", Carl Sagan, among many others.

Some favorite movies: all films by C. Chaplin; most films by Woody Allen; Harry Potter; most films by Wes Anderson and Sofia Coppola; The Lords of the Rings Trilogy, Groundhog Day, among some others.
