About Me

ABOUT ME

I´d define myself as someone who's really outgoing and talkative. A little bit stubborn sometimes but overall a smiley person :)
I chose to study sociology to understand people and social movements but instead, I found out the best way to learn is to travel and meet people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I joined Couchsurfing in 2012 when I was living in Pakistan and planning my trip in Southeast Asia. It turned to be an amazing experience, I had CS hosts that were really friendly and funny. Also I got to know some cities from a local's point of view.
Couchsurfing has changed my way of travelling and getting around in new places. I loved it so much that I recommended it to everyone I know back home! I hope I can continue meeting amazing people like I did so far.

Interests

Travelling, of course! Meeting new people, hanging around with friends and watching movies. Talking about anything, chit chat or big debates about international economy and politics.
I hate routinary life so I try to always find the way to do something different, from visiting friends and go to the theatre or visit a museum in my own town.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have very eclectic taste in terms of music: enjoy classical music, Bollywood songs, Oasis, Coldplay, Audioslave and Red Hot Chilli Peppers, cheesy pop songs or reggeaton. It´s a wide range of music and it actually depends a lot on my mood hahah

Movies: Earth, from Deepa Metha, The Godfather, Quase dois irmaos (Almost two brothers, an incredible brazilian movie),.
I'm also crazy about series, I was a huge fun of Lost, but got very dissapointed with the ending. I also watched Homeland, True Detective, The leftovers, How I met your mother and The good wife.
Los Simuladores is an argentinian TV programme that's awesome, I don't know if it's available with english subtitles but totally recomend it!..
I love reading different things from great books like Brave New World (Huxley) and 1984 (Orwell) to sagas like Harry Potter.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1) Going to a youth international forum in Romania when I was 16 years old. After spending 2 amazing weeks with people from all over the world I could never stop thinking about travelling!
2) Doing the Inka Trail to Machu Pichu, Peru.
3) Living in Karachi (Pakistan) for a couple of months, while doing an internship in a local NGO

What I Can Share with Hosts

I like cooking, so I could prepare some argentinian empanadas or a nice pastel de papa (beef and potatoes pie) and also carry my mate (a sort of tea from here) so you could try something new!
I also love going out, enjoy visiting museums or going for a movie as much as going to clubs and dancing or even relaxing at home and talking till late. I'm super curious and always willing to learn more from different cultures but I do know to respect the timings of the host (if he/she needs to sleep, work, etc), so I definitely won´t be a burden!
