About Me


explore my city


I hope to be everchanging, but think at my root I am an adventurer and kind hearted! I am a new Mom and am totally in love with my son and new role. Also I am an English teacher, and am learning and enjoying a lot especially this year. Finally, I have the most incredible life partner ever.... :P


optimism and smiling is key and so helpful (and essential!)Self-care and sharing skills, resources and stories will get us through it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I would love to meet people and do new things in Granada, since I am new here and finding my places.


I´ve met many people travelling so Couchsurfing is a way to keep in touch sometimes with them, also I´ve hosted a few people in Granada and have been hosted by someone in Barcelona and Dusseldorf, Germany. It´s also been a platform to get involved with Timeshares and cooking lessons, and also to check out shows/events happening.


recently sociology, gender theory, yoga, freeganism, simple living, theatre, biking, and of course, connecting with my child

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I´ve travelled all over the carribiean, central and south america with my Mom on budget travels (I just realized my mom was pretty much a freegan without putting that name to it before) or camping, I´ve seen the kindest humanity when hitchiking, I´ve made the best friendships while travelling.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach English, different dishes like coconut Thai stirfry or many typical Spanish dishes. I want to learn about Bike care and maintenance. Also, I have an excess of "stuff" right now for gifting or trading.
