Sobre Mim

***NEW(ER) MEMBERS PLEASE READ THIS FIRST***
(sorry if you find the tone a bit harsh, but it's because a number of you are testing Barcelona's hosts patience!)

Just 10 years ago I signed up on this website, carefully filled in the profile, made a donation of $20 (it was non-profit back then), got verified and started to host, go to events and organise events myself (we were using CS as MeetUp at the time). That was only later that I started to surf.

It pretty much changed my life: I met many of the people who are still my friends in Barcelona, including boyfriends, I learned from getting exposed to people from different backgrounds and lifestyles, I built confidence to start traveling and backpacking alone, creating wonderful memories... a dynamic still pretty much alive in my life to this day.

I have always tried to keep the balance between how much I have received from this community, and how much I give back. So far I have hosted about 50 human beings (and same cat, 3 times), and surfed about 40 times.

So do me, and everybody here, a favour: fill in your profile, with substance, not just cute selfies, because I am going to read it !!! Show your brains and your heart. Get informed about how CS works and what's the spirit: best is to meet CSers in your hometown or on the way. Send me a proper REQUEST. Get VERIFIED. I wouldn't receive a guy with no references and no verification at my place, it's a matter of safety, but I don't like discrimination so it also applies for you ladies! Shit happens: a friend of mine who hosts loads of people got robbed at his place, all the electronics... And don't insult me by offering me money... yes, some people do!

I won't host you if: you're a football or shopping fanatic, if you're mainly interested in Barcelona for party and drugs, if you spend more time on planes than in countries, if you spend more time on your phone than talking with people, if you're a carnivore (means eat loads of meat).

***ABOUT ME***

If you find me too quiet, offer me a drink and get me started on: food, cooking, volcanoes, Japan and Japonism, travel (of course!), the environment, the f*** food industry, Guatemala, etc, etc, etc...

I am a consultant working from home meaning I am a bit in the middle (of the living room) but on the other hand I have a lot of free time. I won't take you by the hand to visit Barcelona though, I have my own activities, sometimes I'll invite you, sometimes I'll live my independent life! You can suggest that we do some stuff together too, it's not forbidden!

This is a VEGAN house so NO MEAT PLEASE. Low waste especially food, plastic and non-recyclable wastes, join and help save this planet! PLEASE don't clutter my bins!

***MISSION***

Get ready for whatever is coming

***PHILOSOPHY***

Why? Why not?!
The grass might not be greener... but it has a different colour, and I love colours!
Question: should I embrace a nomadic lifestyle, or am I running away from something? I think a number of experienced backpackers will relate...

Por que estou no Couchsurfing?

Experienced members will know, and newer, just read my first paragraph
Why I'm back on CS after many years inactive? I am able to host again, and I want to see if I enjoy CS as much as I used to, or if I DELETE my profile because most people take the whole thing too much for granted (it depends on you...)

Interesses

All aspects of food: science, history, culture, supply chain, environment, ethics. I enjoy cooking and spend a significant time between cooking classes, cooking for myself and friends. Ok, let's be honest, it's an obsession!

I do stuff like: pilates, swimming, hiking, learning Catalan, visiting art exhibits, etc...
