About Me

Thinking about a long-biking trip, and trying to find the time for it :D


Once upon a time one little girl was born in an magic island in the middle of the ocean. She always believed in fairies, gnomes and mermaids, islands which appeared and disappeared in the horizon and forgotten continents underwater like Atlantis. She always felt a very strong connection with the environment, with the mother earth, and one day decided to start walking around to discover what this amazing planet had to show us and what could she do to help to save the planet.
Her everyday life was just about feeling, believing, loving, trusting, sharing, following the signs, flowing like the ocean which saw her growing up. Magic is everywhere, is inside of us, if only you believe...
She was educated to follow her dreams, to be brave but sensitive, to do the things she believed in even if the rest of the world kept repeating they were impossible to achieve. The Universe will provide, she was told, just order!
And this is what she is doing.


Walk alongside another person in whatever journey they are on without judging them, making them feel inadequate, trying to fix them, or trying to impact the outcome- by someone.
Let´s all go green, please! Let´s wake up, practice empathy, practice activism!
Let´s be spontaneous. Open our minds. Positive thinking. Let´s meditate and live a conscious life.

Free hugs! ... and dance.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I think it´s a beautiful idea and it helps to improve hospitability and humanity in this world that sometimes tends to be a little bit too egoistic. Sharing is caring!

Music, Movies, and Books

I like classic movies :) from the 40's-50's-60's
I basically enjoy most types of music; my mum brought me up listening to opera and classical music :D I enjoy from tribal-African music, to instrumental, folk, indie, swing and blues, rock, etc.
I love reading books and while I travel I like to get books on the way, although that means by backpack gets heavier and heavier XD At the moment I am reading "SAPIENS, brief history of humankind", and I totally recommend it!-Update: After "Sapiens", I read "Homo Deus, a history of tomorrow" from the same author, also highly recommended. Now I´m reading "The Silk Roads, a new history of the world", and dreaming of a bike trip following the old Silk routes, from Istanbul to Shanghai... maybe :D

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being alive!
Epic moments:
-swimming in the Great Coral Reef in Australia, I could feel my tears of happiness under the water :P
-Hitch-hiking from Athens in Greece, to Stockholm in Sweden, following sort of an eastern route :D Took us two months and it was an amazing experience of people and places
-Northern lights in Sweden... like if the sky was dancing
-Delphi, the Oracle, in Greece, is a magical place
