About Me


Enjoying life in Sweden again after some years abroad


I am a Colombian girl living in Sweden for almost 16 years now. Well, I have been abroad some of those years, I have been living every where but now I am back in Sweden and the plan is to stay here. I am an anthropologist and I love traveling which is great since it has been a part of my jobb!

I love traveling and having a child hasn't stopped me for keeping doing it. I believe she loves traveling as well. She is a professional backpacker! Her name is Julia and she is the love of my life!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host people when I am not traveling, I have done some couchsurfing and I have met couchsurfers from all over the world through groups I belong to in this comunity.


Lots of fun having lunch, picnics, parties, hanging out, cuchsurfing and hosting wanderful people from CS.


traveling, outdoor activities. Climbing, rafting, kayaking, eco-tourism, party, drinks, bbq, picknick, coffee, beaches. And my favorite sport: boxing!

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite movie is "the constant gardener".
My favorite book "Angela's ashes"

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

As an anthropologist, I found it amazing, interesting and kind of disgusting to see a funeral where the locals burned the body in the middle of a park where everybody could see it. This was in Indonesia.

Another amazing thing: I loved to be in the middle of no where, in the jungle, in a hut. I was eating food wraped in banana leafs and drinking a very strong licour with chili with the chief of a tribe and his family in Laos.
