I own the blog:

Language Exposure where I write about translation, language and literature. I also write articles in other two blogs about outdoor sports and social and environmental issues.

Hobbies:

Reading: My favourites are crime, science fiction and fantasy novels but I also enjoy those brilliantly written stories and intense characters that make you forget everything but the stories growing at every page. A good film or TV series are always more than welcome. Outdoor sports: and specially climbing, a sport which has brought me amazing experiences so far.

Yoga: which I practice for many years now.

And of course, I go on a trip whenever I am able to, usually for climbing and enjoying the beauty of the nature but I also drop from time to time in cities and towns.
