About Me


to enjoy my surroundings everyday!


Currently living in Barcelona, Spain. I am on a student exchange program at the University of Barcelona, School of Law. I have lived most of my life in Puerto Rico, my native country. I did live for 3 years in upstate New York. I enjoy travelling very much, reading, taking pictures, going to museums and parks. Spending time with friends and family, taking care of my cats and doing some gardening are some of the things I most enjoy! I have a vegetarian diet, so I enjoy cooking with veggies!!


I think we can all learn from the saying "live and let live". Not taking it to mean caos, but more to not want to live so much that we loose sight of other people, animals and our Earth... to make room for everything that surrounds us. Growing and helping other to grow.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I went on my first couchsurfing trip a few days back. I had a great time in Madrid. I stayed at Adry's house. We talked about where we come from and shared as if we knew each other from before. I really enjoyed being able to have a great vacation and the opportunity to make a new friend!
