About Me


Pansa llena, corazón contento.


Journalist and curious by nature. Lover of written things. City-lover and nature-dweller. Amateur of music and cooking.


Yes to make-up, no to jewelry.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Up till now my only hosting experience was with Coskun, and that was a really positive experience. My best friend Jill has hosted some more, and her guests were always great people I had good fun with. So I hope to host more myself in the future.

I also surfed a little bit myself when I was in Vienna looking for an apartment. These experiences were absolutely positive and I hope to give other travellers equally good memories.


I love languages! You can entertain me all evening by spoon-feeding me new words from your language.
I also like books, music, drawing and politics.
I also absolutely love food and eating. My friends can confirm : if I'm not fed at fixed times, I get very grumpy. My cooking skills have not quite caught up to my ambitions, but I'll get there.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Last year I was in Rome and I couldn't believe how beautiful it was. Me and the 8 million Americans who were there with me.

Teach, Learn, Share

I did a course in colour analysis so I can tell you which colours make you shine :). I can teach you the chords on piano and guitar and how to make a good bechamel sauce.
