I love music. Many of my daily activities tend to be accompanied by some sound in the background. From time to time I scrobble what I'm listening to this profile: http://www.lastfm.es/user/idcs0906 .
I like a lot of stuff related to Science-Fiction and Fantasy (Books, Graphic novels, TV Series, Movies, etc.) and boardgames.
Regarding other matters: I enjoy hiking, visiting archaeological/historical sites, taking photographs and playing guitar at an amateur level. Lately, I have also found a special interest on swimming.
