About me…

Beyond work, what I am is a family man focused on raising my family and showing them the world as I have had the opportunity to observe it, from close up, … walking, discovering, testing. First only many years and then with Sonia and with my two children many more. I am a very lucky person. I have traveled almost 2 million km, traveling through 60 countries in more than three decades. I have repeated almost all of them, and many several times. I miss my mother, who passed away, she was a flight attendant for Iberia and that’s when the passion to travel the world began. Looking at my father I have learned a lot about the human being, about society, about values, how to live life and how to try to be a good father, like him. I studied Advertising and Public Relations during the day at the Complutense University and at night I learned everything else. Always in the unbeatable company of my friends. I am a lifelong skater, a lifelong ski and a surfer since 2000. I have surfed in Hawaii (Maui, Big Island, Oahu, Kauai), Jeffreys Bay (South Africa), Paul do Mar and Jardim do Mar (Madeira) ), Bali (Indonesia), Iceland, Hossegor, Anchor Point (Morocco), Japan, Arpoador (Brazil), Puerto Chicama (Peru), Costa Rica, Puerto Escondido (Mexico), Supertubos (Portugal) … but I definitely stay with Los Locos (Cantabria) and with El Palmar (Cádiz). I have also climbed mountains in Spain, in the Andes, the Atlas and in the Himalayas. I have a little mud house in an oasis in Egypt, a piece of land in front of the longest left wave in the world in Peru. I am passionate about Asia, especially China, South Korea, Japan and Vietnam.

Do you need valuable and unique information about a specific country for your business or project?

We probably know that country in depth. Write to us and tell us what you need.

For example, in Asia, we know all of South Korea, 90% of the territory of Japan (Honshū, Kyūshū, Shikoku and Hokkaidō), 10 provinces of China in depth (Zhejiang, Anhui, Henan, Shaanxi, Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou, Hunan, Jiangxi, Guangdong), Shanghai Municipalities, Chongqing and Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, and furthermore, we have thoroughly traveled Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and all of India in three trips by train through the north, the center and the south. We love Arab countries and their people, … we know many of them … we even have a house made of salt and Kerchief in an oasis in Egypt. Also in a desert in Peru. We have traveled across North America, Central America and South America, several times most of their countries, from Canada to Patagonia. We have made the leap to Hawaii, twice, to Oahu, Kawai, Big Island and Maui. And Madeira. We love going to Iceland, Morocco and South Africa. We have traveled Europe by train, car and bus. From south to north and from west to east. Specifically 28 of their countries. And also Georgia, Turkey and Syria, which we carry in our hearts. And Spain, where we always return.
