About Me


Viajar es vivir .... Bucket list!!


I've found my passion in life and that is to travel and meet as much people as possible and eat as much food as I can stand!
My vocation public service and volunteer work... That means, I have my dream job because it pays enough and leaves me ample time and opportunity to do what I truly love.
I travel a LOT to conferences, symposiums and meetings, rarely for actual vacations.
I love meeting people and learning how they go about their lives and what worries them and makes them happy. This is the real reason I've been in couchsurfing for so long and plan on keep doing it.


Vivir es viajar ....................................... Viajar es vivir.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can teach you Spanish!

I can talk to you about politics and history of Puerto Rico and show you places that almost no "tourist" gets to see....

I have an available couch and then some!

I may be available to drive you around, hang out, take you to and pick you up from airport, etc.

It all depends on my availability at work.


Hung out with a bunch of Lithuanian girls awesome experience!

Visitar Costa Rica y tener la oportunidad tan maravillosa de hospedarme y compartir algunos días de nuestra estadía en el país con una pareja encantadora y muy dispuesta.

Tener reincidentes en casa y hacer planes para visitar a muchos de los que he conocido (To have repeat offender and makes plans to receive them again or to visit them in their houses).... That gives meaning to my life!
