Embark on journeys that will feed my mind and soul.
I love to dance to cumbias & salsa, explore jungles, beaches, and learn about all types of cultures and foods. I consider myself to be an open minded and chill individual hungry to learn from other's way of life, and engage in dialogue on travel stories, people's views of poverty, immigration,social change and love.
Stay positive, smile, learn, help and share with the world!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
So far, so good. I've only done this twice. My second time couchsurfing was a bit shady but in the end it turned out well.
I am interested in learning how to dance samba, cave dive, and hope to backpack all of Latin America in a couple of years. Southeast Asia will have to wait!
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: Anything Salsa, cumbia & bachata! Celia Cruz & Juanes are my faves...I like a little bit of everything though.
Fave Books: The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns, Confessions of an Economic Hitman, Fast Food Nation. Eat, Pray, Love.
Movies: Friday, Like Water for Chocolate, Sound of Music, Across the Universe
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Spoke to Palestinians in refugee camps, rode a camel across the desert in Morocco, snorkeled close to a pack of dolphins, enjoyed a coming-of-age party with indigenous tribe in Panama, saw/heard howler monkeys as I walked through ancient Palenque ruins.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you how to speak Spanish, ride a bicycle in Venice Beach, dance cumbias, and take you to nice hiking trails!
I would love to learn from other cultures and languages as much as possible. Everything from what they eat, how they speak, their slang, ideologies of love, etc.
