About Me


I want to get to know my foster country better, its cities and towns, its flavours and colors, and its people, too.


I enjoy learning new things, meeting new people and experiencing new things.
Professionally, I am overall a teacher: English, Spanish, Preschool & Lit.
I enjoy taking short trips, and though I don't have a lot of time for that, I like to get away when I can. I also like walking around the city where I live.
My free time I spend it walking (yes, without purpose... or maybe towards ice-cream shops), reading books & sometimes Marvel comics, studying French or German, and sometimes watching soccer matches.


Just go from here to where the world takes you! Forever is still too far away!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new to Couchsurfing. I first came in contact with it through friends, and with them I had my first experience using it. I enjoyed a lot being helped by a local, and sharing some time talking and eating together.


Languages, hitting the road, postcards, history, geography, art...

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite books range from 'Hamlet' to the 'Little Princess', Alejandro Casona's plays, Nabokov's 'Lolita', Blake's poems, and other random stuff.
I listen to things by seasons. Currently I'm into The Gaslight Anthem. I also like some Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Taylor Swift, Tori Amos... random.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Jumping from the terrace garden of a monastery & walking on the roof of the great, adjacent, baroque church.

Teach, Learn, Share

Mostly, I teach languages, so I offer Spanish ;)
I have also some experience with teacher training, in case it's useful for anyone.
