About Me

ABOUT ME

I am from Venezuela, but I have been living in Berlin for five years where I study Social and Cultural Anthropology and work.
I am a person with lots of energy and I laugh a lot. I appreciate honesty and can be be very emotional :). Having said that, I enjoy having conversations with people because for me there is nothing more important that connecting with other humans.
I really love learning languages. The beauty of accessing to different patterns of thinking when learning languages still amazes me!

Living in Berlin is crazy and it has many advantages, but, on the other hand, I have been missing the atmosphere of small towns, the hot weather and being surrounded by nature; that's why I try my best to leave Berlin as often as possible, especially Southwards!

And of course:
I dream of long term traveling and a moneyless (or almost moneyless) life!

PHILOSOPHY

Security in life is an illusion.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've had really beautiful experiences hosting in Mérida, Venezuela and in Berlin. I have hosted around 30 people and it was loads of fun. I am happy to say that many of my guest became my friends.
Have been hosted quite a few times and I am very grateful

Interests

Traveling and hitchhiking.
Languages, cooking, veganism.
Intersectional feminism, history, philosophy,
Music, DANCE, drums
POETRY and dark sense of humor :P

Music, Movies, and Books

I love poetry, Greek tragedies and the old Dostoyewski. :) I love the book "the Master and the Margarite".
Movies: i love Kurosawa and Miyazaki, Buñuel and Bergman, Lynch and the Coen brothers, Kusturica and Kieslowski and many more!
"Man facing southeast", "Babette's feast", "La planète sauvage", "Shame", "Amores perros" and "Tous les matins du monde" are some of my favorites movies.

I like the music I can feel like a lot of latino things: salsa, cumbia and Afrolatinx music. I adore music from the Balkans! I am also into Sigur Rós.
Techno nights out are fun as well.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hitchhiked from Berlin to Athens on my own.
Watching a torment in the choppy sea at night, the sky all cover with stars in Mexico.
Riding a horse and falling down.
Awake all night reading Chinese Lao Tse and Saint John
Threw a window out of a window by accident and destroyed a car with it :(
Sleeping beside a frozen lake in the middle of nowhere
Guča trompet festival in Serbia
Camping in a paradisiacal deserted beach in Turkey
