About Me


Live life to the fullest


I am an outgoing friendly girl who likes the company of friends and family. I am currently learning some French. I've already studied some German. Also very interested in learning Italian and possibly Russian or Danish. I love to visit different places, get to get to know different people, languages and cultures. I love animals, traveling, reading, and movies. Making new friends and having fun. Creativity. British accent. I like to try different types of beer when I can.

I have Italian taste in food and am interested in practicing sports. I run when I can. Preferably in the morning. I love running. It just takes your mind off things, relaxes you at the same time that it pumps you up with energy.

Something I could do the whole day is drawing and reading and writing and eating. I am a vegetarian (almost vegan currently) and being the romantic cancerian I am, I'm a big dreamer. I believe that humanity could not survive if not for dreams. They foster us to move forward and to chase after what we desire.

I LOVE people who make me laugh, I appreciate the delight of irony - but not sarcasm. I am currently in the process of writing a book - and, cliché, I have been currently in the process of writing a book for sometime now. Whatever I wish for and do not find in reality, I just take a sheet of paper and a pencil and create.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am interested in making new friends while visiting places around the world.
I would be very happy to show people around my city and be at their disposal for company and sharing a beer or two or simply going to a park or to the movies. I may not, however, have the time to do that though and I apologize in advance.


I have met some amazing people, who kindly agreed to meet my friends and me when we were traveling and show us around their city.


Some of the things that I'm interested in include film, literature, music, languages, tango, Sherlock Holmes, nature, and traveing. Drawing, horseback riding. television series, cooking. Board games, card games, or just any games in general.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Breathtakingly beautiful trip from Nepal to Tibet through a countryside mountain way.

Teach, Learn, Share

I might be able to share stories from my trips if they would be any interesting to you and how to cook some Brazilian and Indian dishes. I will be interested in learning almost anything you have to tell me. I would love to teach and learn about any of the topics that interest me, especially film.
