About Me

📍Currently in Montevideo

Before you send me a message:
* I prefer hosting people who also host people. If you surfed 50 times but hosted 0 times, I will most likely not reply to your message.
* There are hundreds of hosts in the city. If you send me a message please let me know why you wanna stay with ME 😇.

10 weird facts about me:

1) I hate butter :(
2) My moustache looks like Salvador Dali's.
3) I started eating rice when I was 23 years old (before that I used to say I didn't like it)
4) My main hobby nowadays is sewing. I have a sewing machine and create clothes all the time.
5) I eat mostly healthy food but I have a big weakness: mayonnaise.
6) I can eat a lemon without making funny faces
7) I haven’t drunk Coca-Cola since 2012. I even forgot why. Lol.
8) I think pigeons and frogs are the most adorable animals in the universe (I have both of them tattooed)
9) I can't swallow pills :(
10) Sometimes I feel like I'm 80 years old and I love to go feed ducks

Less irrelevant information:

25 years old. Bachelor in Communication (UdelaR). Master's in Strategic Communication (Universitat Rovira i Virgili)

I consider myself funny, and really sarcastic, my sense of humour gets feed by shitposting (lol). Even though this, I have a serious face most of the time haha.
I love learning new things and having conversations exchanging about our cultures with people from other parts of the world. I’m very open-minded and hate prejudices.
Also, experiencing different cultures from the inside is maybe what I like most in life. Thanks couchsurfing.

Some of my hobbies and passions:
* As I said before, I love sewing
* I play the bass
* I love birds and birdwatching, I have recently gotten into birds' photography (my e-bird profile: https://ebird.org/profile/NDYzMTgwOA/world)
* I love learning about cultures, history and linguistics all the time (sometimes I spend hours just looking at the map looking for interesting things)
* I love playing chess (my elo is around 1400 on blitz) and I used to teach the kids in my neighborhood how to play it.
* I go to the gym three times a week

I’ve been on couchsurfing since I’m 18 and I’ve hosted people from all over the world. I started hosting people at my parents house in San Carlos, and then I continued hosting in Montevideo from 2019 on.
I have been hosted too around south america, north america, western Europe and eastern Europe. Thanks to couchsurfing I have met a lot of incredible people.
