About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Make all those dreams come true! Yey!

ABOUT ME

ahhhh! so hard to write this part!
will do my best...

I was born in Valparai­so (such a lovely city!), grew up in Vina del Mar, next to the pacific ocean, wondering what was on the other side of that blue line, maybe that's why I always had this urged to travel...
My first backpacking experience was at the early age of twelve! (no, my parents didn't allow it, they didn't know I was going full on backpacking :P) Then when I turned nineteen I decided I wanted to travel to those places that seem impossible to reach, so I went to Sweden, where I spent four years. Then I moved to New Zealand, Australia and Argentina. And then suddenly! I was away from home for seven years!

The world has taught me so much! People's experience and my own has been the best education I could have ask for. I've taken every single opportunity that life has gave me and for that I'm grateful and happy. Even when things don't go the way we expect it, there is always something to learn and improved yourself, right? :)

I try my best to be happy and see the rest of the people happy as well. I love to smile, and I love it even more when I receive a smile back ;)

I'm quite critical (and lets just say it problematic! haha) on my points of view, I love to talk about the environment, politics, social issues, philosophy and of course life it self!

The thing that I love the most in life is without doubt to TRAVEL!!!

PHILOSOPHY

love and respect are the only things that the world need to get a better place!
Social justice and education is the way to build a better society!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I keep telling so many people to join CS, I even told my lovely mother to sign in!
So I guess spreading the word around is what I do :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

All of them, ALL-OF-THEM have been amazing!
For some reason all the couchsurfers happen to have this beautiful energy, all so different, but at the same time so similar, so willing to share, and to be open to the others!
CS has been my family in so many place now. So happy to be part of it!

Interests

looove to talk about life, universe, and all that kind of thing that you actually never get a definitive answer for!
I like to dance, to share, to laugh (I LOVE to laugh!), to learn from others, to listen and to be listen.
I like to explore, to be in nature, to find little bugs and play with them, to be a child in my heart, to do some Yoga, to climb a little bit, to play (the inner child again), to listen live music (lucky enough in Valparaiso I have so many friends that are musicians!)
I like to read good books, even when I'm the slower reader I know (the inner child get distracted too easily)
I like to walk about, to climb hills and to watch the birds and the landscape from above, makes you feel so small, I love that overwhelming feeling that nature gives you.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I can tell you all about it with a cup of coffee in hand ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

ohhh I like this part!!
This is what it's all about!!! Shareee learnnn from another human being! We don't need schools! We have the world and the life to learn all that we want/need!!!
From my side I can share my experience about things like dance (yes I can teach you some Salsa moves), just a bit of handicrafts, of course willing to teach spanish to anyone!!
I'm interested in Latin American social and political issues so I can share/talk/discuss that with you, since I think is important we know our history in order to build a better future! :)
For me I will love to learn a good portuguese, french (Oui s'il vous plait!) and get better in my English!
To know anything about the history from where you come from and your experiences!
I love to constantly learn from science, nature, history, political and social issues, culture, philosophy, books, etc...
