About Me


Finding my path in life.


I enjoy politics, music, cooking and languages. I believe in social justice, political sovereignity and economical independence.
I also work and volunteer in YFU, an international exchange organization, which I believe is also a way to make the world a better place; through cultural understanding and respect.


I believe in living and enjoying the present. Thinking about the future, but never sacrificing the present. And always remembering and learning from the past!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think learning is the most important things man can do in life, and travelling is one of the best ways to learn. And if you can't travel, hosting is a great and probably also one of the best approaches to learn from others!

I enjoy surfing/hosting with people who come like a friend, who know how to be helpful and nice, open-minded and talkative people! Also clean and tidy.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I met Cristina Fernández de Kirchner (Argentina president, whom I love) and that day was fucking amazing :).
I guess another amazing thing was hitchhiking from Italy to Armenia and everything that happened during that trip.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you the languages I speak, English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Serbocroatian or Chinese :o). I'm also a very good cook, have a wonderful taste in music, can teach you everything about Argentine politics, and some other stuff B/.
