About Me


Dreamer, sweet, stubborn, cheerful, positive, impulsive, ...

I have two passions: travel and dance. I love traveling, seeing new places, different people, other cultures, all that can enrich my life is welcome:)

I think it is important to seize every moment and appreciate every opportunity we have, get the most out of them and above all, always learn something from everything.

I love my friends, they are my confidante, my other family, so I love making new friends! It's amazing to realize what some people can make good in your life :)

I love dancing all latin music, photography, go shopping, I love pizza and Italian food in general, and I like sports also, running, hiking, etc.


Believe in yourself and in your dreams, realise them, always smiling :) cause nobody is so poor as can't give a smile, and anyone so rich to not need it ;)

I admire or inspires me (among others):
Mahatma Ghandi
Jorge Bucay
Paulo Coelho
Nelson Mandela
Martin Luther King
Zaha Hadid
Ricardo Arjona

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I would love to have the opportunity to take from each corner of the world that I can, things that people can bring me to grow up, and just make people smile, feel good, feel happy. People will be traveling to Barcelona tell me! :D


I like Latin music and salsa, bachata, etc.. Dancing is something that since childhood has been part of my life and I could not live without it :)

I like architecture, so I'm studying this, and I work as a photography model cause I like fashion and photography.

I also love children as much tenderness they inspires me and I have so much fun playing with them (in my family I have many little cousins and they let me crazy!) I have also worked as a volunteer in NGO dedicated to social development of children, it has been the most important experience of my life, sincerly <3

Mm.. more things. Obviously, I'm passionate about travelling. (That's why I'm here!) it's so enriching to know new places, see things so different, it's wonderful that never ends, there are always many treasures to discover!

I like many things and I could make a list that would never ends: psychology, writting, swimming, surf the net, chocolat!!, phylosophy, art, gymnastics (I've been a gymnast from 6 to 12 national and regional competitions), etc.

Music, Movies, and Books

Favourite films: Dirty Dancing, Baila conmigo, The town, 50 first dates, Ghost, etc.

Favourite music: Salsa, Marc Anthony, Ricardo Arjona, Hector Lavoe, Fania Records, etc.

Favourite books: The Secret, 50 shades of Grey, The art of happyness, Boris, Si me dices ven lo dejo todo pero dime ven.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

♥ The best experience in my life has been volunteering at an NGO for social development with children in Perú.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I've met people from many places here in Barcelona when they have been traveling and have gone out into the city, also in a dancing meetings. I've also surfed CSers home, in many places! Travelling around Perú, Belgium, Norway, etc. Anyway I've spent really good times and great fun. The only thing I dislike about this incredible experience is always there are farewells, and I hate them :( but it is very rewarding to meet people and learn something from each one. :D

Sept. 2011: Brussels. Dimitry and Christina's home.
June 2012: Lima. Joseph and Stefania's home.
July 2012: Cusco. Ninoska, Neri and Javier's home.
Nov. 2012: Oslo. Octavio and Deaa's home.
