Live, learn and love
I am a 29 year old girl born in Quilmes, in the outskirts of Southern Buenos Aires. I am a Certified Public Accountant, and I went in for the career in Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA). I work full-time in Finance, Management Control in Comex & Forwarding, which I actually enjoy lots and keeps me interested in my line of work. I also started learning German around two years ago.
I absolutely love travelling and want to see the whole world in one form or another. I'm a little shy at first but I warm up to people pretty quickly. I love meeting new, interesting people, and learning what makes them tick.
It goes along the lines of: 'Life is a journey, enjoy the ride', but to be honest, I think i'm still working out my philosophy.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I usually take fellow travellers sightseeing around the city, plus many times I have taken part in meetings and gatherings during the day and at night. I also try helping them out with their Spanish when they are keen on practising, but I am open to speak in English if they prefer to do so. What I can offer for the moment is going out for a coffee or drink, I moved from my parents place some time ago though there is no couch available at the moment. Hopefully this will change soon :)
So far, so good. Met some wonderful people and learnt a lot about different countries, customs and culture.
People. I am interested in nearly everything, but especially their very own culture. I also like sports, music and film. I genuinely take an interest in pretty much everything.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Crossing the Atlantic for love. Living in a farm in England. Travelling Italy on a camper. Roadtrip in Romania. Struggling on the way to cross from Budapest to Bratislava - now THAT was fun!
Teach, Learn, Share
I can cook a lot of different things! I enjoy mixing it up in the kitchen, learning and teaching whatever comes to my mind. I'm really excited to learn about cooking in several countries. I can also teach Spanish, people say I've been blessed with patience and adore practising my mother language.
