Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Friends from all around the globe staying at my place or me staying at theirs for as long as I can remember. Friends of friends, strangers on the train, meeting very diverse people and learning the world from them. Finding ways to connect with one another. I am a believer on "you should hug strangers" that has led me to wonderful paths.

Please read "my home" section if you are in a pc or "read more" if you are using the app so you know some of the guidelines to enjoy our time together.


I love arts; painting, pottery, bodypaint days, literature, dance, film, photography. I like how these activities allow to explore feelings in depth. Darkness or light can be found in there and become something beautiful. Let's be art together 🎨🖋️🪁

I love nature; I feel so complete when I'm surrounded by it. A walk in a forest, a swim on the lake, or a night under stars. Therefore is not surprise I'm a naturist, eco-friendly kind of person, vegetarian and flowers in the hair. I fkk whenever there is a chance. I find chances often. 🗻🌲🪷

I love people; either folk traditions or alternative lifestyles. whenever people are sharing and connecting it always makes me smile. I love moving, going places, hugging people, taking journeys.🫂🪅🪆

Music, Movies, and Books

l'amant, como agua para chocolate, lark rise, unendliche geschichte, desert places, cien años de soledad, kafka on the shore, pasiones, the man who quit money, anecdotes of destiny, hakawati, all sorts of legends, poetry, folk stories and myths.

Love strange movies and characters (the pillow book, en un claroscuro de la luna, la reine margot, goodbye lenin, before sunset, e la nave va, querelle, casablanca, call me by your name, ratatouille, everything everywhere all at once)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A dream journal since I was 15
Whale watch kayaking
Sleeping under the stars in an old castle's ruins.
Be silent
Listening to other people's life stories
Staying connected with people I love

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy cooking together with people, mixing flavours is well an art. I will bodypaint, there is always colors in my backpack. We could do some yoga moves. I am too lazy to do it alone. If there is a swimming place, let's go. I would love to watch some movies of your country, specially of the arty kind. I give good massages and I tend to use that as my last bargaining token when looking for hosts :) If you ask me to sing I will happily do it and you will probably regret it. I am into bioconstruction and bio-urban-gardens, exploring abandoned buildings and walks without direction.
I really like getting lost
Possibilities are endless

What I Can Share with Hosts

Hospitality was a sacred duty in many ancient cultures
Let's bring it back :)

I am also in bewelcome, trustroots and if I see you lost in the streets with your big backpack I will probably ask you if you have a place to crash.
