About Me


To live my dream and see the world...


I'm 31 years old, I love to travel (obviously!) and learn new languages. I like photography, movies, reading, hanging out with friends and family, wandering the streets of my (or any) city, hiking. I am addicted to coffee and chocolate ;)


My personal philosophy would be to fulfil all my dreams and live my life the way I want to. I don't want to regret something I didn't do. And I'd rather be poor and happy than rich and bored...

Music, Movies, and Books

I like to read all kinds of books, listen to all kinds of music (except metal I guess...) and I love to watch movies. I like documentaries, dramas, comedies and everything related to travel.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Went on a cruise around Svalbard and fell in love with the Arctic

Teach, Learn, Share

I love meeting people from all over the world and learning about their lives. And other languages. I now speak English, Spanish and Norwegian fluently, and I have a mission to add French to that list.

I can teach basic photography skills.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Stories and photos from around the world, smiles and an open mind.
