About Me


Live, love and "work my garden" (Voltaire, Candide)


Head in the clouds and feet on Earth, which requires a strong sense of balance. Brave, stubborn, fiery, I speak seven languages and two quarts, even body language. Passionate reader, animated dancer, energetic walker, occasional poet.


Live and let live. Help and you will be helped.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Showing around when possible, spreading the word about this great project too.


I met a few people in Salvador de Bahia through it and I surfed the couch of a very nice couple from Montevideo, Uruguay. A couple from Lithuania surfed my couch in Barcelona and I just started attending Lisbon meetings.


Life, nature and people. Love to walk, read, watch films, dance, talk, hike, swim, watch theatre and contemporary dance. I am really interested in anthropology/cultural studies, that's why I enjoy meeting people of different nationalities/religions. And I don't consider skin colour an identity mark.

Music, Movies, and Books

World music (fado, tango, gypsy, oriental, brasilian, flamenco, klezmer, etc.), jazz; classic and independent films from all over the world (Fellini, Tarkovski, Herzog, Bergman, Kim Ki Duk, Wong Kar-wai); Russian writers, Latin American writers, classic and contemporary: Shakespeare, Italo Calvino, Dino Buzzati, Luigi Pirandello, Bulgakov, poetry.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Worked on cruise ships in the Caribbean for three years. In every country and every place I visited I've seen amazing things and people.
