About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy life...just like I have been doing so far!

ABOUT ME

Happy, curious, open minded, with passion for travel, meeting the world one person at a time, growing wise and laughing out loud.
Recently I was reminded that one has not much control over many things in life, but when it comes to travel...nothing can stop me! Distance and destination are often irrelevant...it's the act of traveling and expanding my world that is so enticing.

PHILOSOPHY

Be yourself and live life with no regrets, but be respectful of others.
I put my heart in everything I do.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosting, surfing and meeting people during my travels - on the train, the plain, the beach, in the corner pub ... it doesn´t take much and could be so enriching! So inspiriing and fueling for life!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My good Argentinian friend Nicolas introduced me to CS. I signed right away. Every experience has been a little adventure and a little discovery - about people in general, the world, or about myself. Love CS!

Interests

People, travel, music, dancing, learning, chocolate, having a laugh, cycling, yoga, photography, writing, art, expat living, backgammon, languages (The ultimate turn on!), satellites... just about anything...but not bowling, or at least not too often :-)
Oh, and how could I forget...driving fast!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I learned to surf, sail and scuba despite the fact I can't swim. Everything water related is a magnet!
Would you teach me how to swim? :)

On 11 August 1999 I saw a total solar eclipse - it's one of the most amazing things I've seen.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you to read and write in Cyrillic , how to whistle with a grass leaf, how to fold a few simple origami, and perhaps a few other things :)

I'd love to learn something from you...anything would be fun!

Sharing one of your stories with me would be great! Sharing a good time together would be even better :-)

Austria, Belgium, Belize, Canada, Cayman Islands, China, Denmark, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States
