About Me

Hey Couchsurfers! I am Blanca, an open-minded, extremely curious, responsible, independent, humble, driven and ethical young woman born and raised in the mountains of a tiny village near Barcelona. I’m a Catalan currently living in Munich, and I’m usually a solo traveller :)

INFO FOR POTENTIAL GUESTS:
I don’t get to host as much as I’d like to, so try to include some cool info/fun facts on the request so that you can be the lucky one :) I host max 2 nights and 1 traveler at a time. Plus, due to working logistics I am only able to host during the weekend (Friday-Sunday). Last minute requests are very welcome :)

Wishing to see the best of Munich but I cannot host you? No problem! Check all my suggestions on places to go, where to eat and party here: http://bit.do/blancalafell

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I truly believe in the power of generosity and altruism! For me, traveling adds peace, joy, growth and experience to my life. No matter what purpose instigates my traveling, it always unfolds new realms of development.

As I read at somepoint of my life, “traveling teaches us being a little less hasty to judge, and a little more open to change”.

Interests

I’m super interested in geography, I love maps and I know almost all the capital cities of the world. I am a big fan of sudokus, cycling, running and dogs! Besides, I really enjoy travelling and learning new languages.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- Being a middle child
- Being a blood donor
- Sponsoring a child from Zimbabwe, and being committed to her safety, health and education
- I can complete a sudoku faster than you :)
- A bee bit my lip. Although it was painful, make sure you ask me for the photo (LOL!)
- Picking up a hitchhiker!
- I'm above all countries' women's average height

Teach, Learn, Share

“Challenge yourself, get out of your comfort zone, do it even when others don’t understand, follow your curiosity, find your version of wild, the universe is listening to you, ask for what you want, work to make it happen, be open, be true to yourself, keep moving forward, slow down, be present, love how imperfectly perfect you are, spend time alone, and enjoy your own company.”

Don't seek happiness, create it! Life is beautiful!

What I Can Share with Hosts

If you host me, I can teach you any of my mother-tongue languages, and also you will have the chance to learn more about my culture. I can cook a traditional Catalan or Spanish dish (don’t expect much here though), and of course share some nice travel stories with a beer (or two or three!). I consider myself to be pretty funny and always up for some partying and fun!
