About Me

Constantly learning how to complain less, live more and have a grateful heart. It's quite liberating to realize that joy and beauty can be found in the simplest things, like a starry night, a good meal or even the smell of rain. As I was growing up, traveling seemed like a distant (not to say impossible) dream to me, so now that I actually have the opportunity to do it, I try to treasure every single moment I spend with every new person I meet in each new place I visit. I really dig losing track of time having meaningful conversations, laughing about random stuff or just discovering and sharing good music.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

There’s just something special about connecting with someone who experiences life in a complete different way and so many miles away from you.
