Live life & Love
Promote the change I wanna see in this world
I'm quite an independent girl, still learning about myself and how to live in this crazy yet beautiful world. I consider myself a free-minded kind of person and tolerance, respect and liberty are the pillars I base my relationships with others on. Truth is I very much enjoy meeting people who have something to tell, people who I share ideals or interests with and so, have meaningful conversations with them (and if its over a glass of wine, even better!)
I'm quite a curious girl, and various things interest me. However, there is three things I am very passionate about and whose I could not do without:
1. Hope and the idea of making of the actual world a better place to live.
2. Music and the art of expressing your emotions through dance.
3. Family, Friends, Unknown people still to come to my life... They all had and will have a meaning to the person I am.
A few other things about me...
Since an early age I had a strong interest on nature. I wanted to be a biologist, but somehow life led me to course a bachelors degree in Environmental Science, and truly I can say it transformed the person who I was and I started to become the one I am nowadays. Two months ago I moved to Iceland to do a European Voluntary Service with an Icelandic association. The project is called "Green Hostels" an is part of the program Erasmus+ If you wanna know a little bit of what we do check this out https://www.facebook.com/GreenMessengersReykjavikHostels/?fref=ts
Be & Let it be
I just know we are all in this together, so lets meet up and make the most of it!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I start travelling at the age of 18, and it tourned out to be one of the things of life that gave me more joy. When travelling I feel like a child with a new toy. Visiting a new village, town or city anywhere, discovering its streets and buildings, its surroundings, its nature, its people, music, art and culture.
I love the feeling when just arrived, I wonder what's awaiting me to discover, whats going to happen, who I will meet on the way, what i will experience, how i will feel about it and what I will learn... That's why I joined couchsurfing, to travel wide and truly get to know a place.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Be myself, open my mind, & enjoy my life.
Climb the Kjerag mountain in Norway and jump on to the big stone. Now, that was scary xD
Teach, Learn, Share
I really like cooking, so I can show you traditional spanish/catalan meals.
I can teach you catalan, castilian or "rapitenk", you chose! Or help you out with English.
I would like to share and learn tricks to contribute to take care of the environment.
I also love languages and I would love to improve my french and learn a new one, like italian or icelandic (as i currently live in Iceland)
