Since forever, I love how diverse and awesome the world is but at some point, I started travelling. Each of my trips has made an impact on myself but the time I came back from Peru, I felt that I wanted to adopt travelling as my way of living life and being more in contact with nature instead of being stucked in the city.
I am from Buenos Aires, so quite big. So, I finished my degree, quit my job in a bank, said goodbye to my little home and moved to Australia with a work and holiday visa for a year where I could finally lived by the ocean. I went for a 7 months trip around Asia, continent I definitely loved. I travelled alone, I travelled with friends, I made friend, I travelled.
After that, I spent one more year in Australia, but that time I had the chance to move to two tiny islands in the Great Barrier Reef. I completely fell in love with the ocean and broke my fear to dive. After leaving Australia, I travelled from Vientiane, Laos to Copenhague, Denmark by bus and train, around 17000 km, crossing China, Mongolia and Russia by the transiberian train 😁🤙. And old version of myself was hitchhiking from one point to another in the middle of China. It felt like being inside a movie. A good one.
I also spent some months working in the Dolomites (Italian Alps). I wanted to experience the montain aswell, and I can say they just put you in the right place sometimes. It is everything so huge and breathtaking that it reminds yourself you are just a little tiny part of the world. That is why I travelled Nepal and did the Annapurna Circuit around the incredible Himalayas. It was 25 days, discovering remote places in the middle of nowhere.
After that, I was about to live the adventure of my life, but I didn't know how much I was about to grew until it ended. I spent 6 months in India but they will stay forever in my heart. India touched my heart in many many ways. I thought it was a cliche before, but you have to be a person made of ice if it doesn't.
I am still writing my story around the world, but I am having a break right now. It is time to put my energy in another stuff while I enjoy Buenos Aires and its people. My people.
I guess I did grow up...
See u soon!💓
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Travelling is the best, but it is even better when you meet people who share with. Every CS experience I had has made my stay in the country a better one, met amazing people and felt like home in the other side of the world.
I love nature in general... The ocean, the mountains, the beach, my best date of the day is finding any spot where I can watch sunset, being outdoors is my best medicine and therapy for everything. Cleans my energy and my soul.

- mountain hiking
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
- Being in Sydney, in front of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House for New Year's eve. The fireforks, the people, and the feeling that every year I was watching that moment on TV, but this year I was actually there.
- Macchu Picchu. To get the ruins, me and my friend spent 4 days hiking between montains and camping under one of the most starry skys I've even seen.
- I went for a tour in an Observatory Centre in the Atacama desert in Chile and saw the planets with a telescope.
- Lived in an island in the middle of the Barrier Reef where I could completely walk around it in 15 minutes.
- I hiked in the Glaciar Perito Moreno, in Argentina.
- Transiberian railway from Beijing to St Petesburg
- Annapurna Circuit in Nepal. I have been hiking around 20km per day every day a whole month.
