About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ser una bala perdida ;-)

ABOUT ME

Love to travel to any place off the beaten track. Most recently I travelled to most of Africa, next on the list is Latin America!

Want to do it with as much couch surfing as possible as to me it's the best way to discover foreign places. Its more than a bed, its a friend you haven't met yet!

Even though I dont speak a single word of French, I live in Fontainebleau (close to Paris) at the moment, studying towards my MBA. Great people, even greater roomies - enjoying every single second of it!

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Relatively new to CS. Started last year as I was travelling for three months in Spain and South America. Had some wonderful experiences in Barcelona and Buenos Aires, so now it's time for me to give back and give others CSers a nice time!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Went to numerous events during my travels in Spain in Argentina and have made many friends for life!
Did some daytrips with fellow CSers and surfed a couple of times in BCN.

Interests

Travel - Especially locations that are not on the tourist map. Recently been to Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia and some other places in Africa. Just started South America and came back from Argentina and Uruguay. This summer: Brazil!

Photography - Whenever I embark on my trips, I keep my camera close by. Just love to keep the impressions I get as dear memories.

Socializing - What can I say...cool people make the world go round. So I do everything to meet as many of them as possible ;-)
