About Me


Aprovechar de un año chingón en Madrid, aprender português, encontrar un trabjao internacional....


On the cusp of moving Madrid, España, for another year of teaching English.

I am an incredibly outgoing and passionate person, about life, travel, languages, music and literature, but most importantly people. I hope to meet you soon.


"We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time." - T. S. Eliot

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Been a part of CS a while now...

-Love hosting people. Probably hosted 20+ people now and can honestly say I've never had a bad experience
-Lived with two Couchsurfers in Bordeaux last two of my best friends in the world.
-Due to this living with another CSer in Bristol next year.
-Finding time to do a trip every now and then!


Best times:
-Meeting two couchsurfers who became my housemates and best friends.
- My first ever experience with Iker in Madrid for a week.
- Hosting some wicked people in Bordeaux.

language learning just gets me really excited! I speak French and Spanish and hoping to learn German and Arabic asap!
