About Me

Updated - 2017

HOLA, I'm Tania and my CURRENT MISSION IS:
LIVE - LOVE - TRAVEL
Live and Enjoy life as much as I can..
Also when I can, I like to help travelers to find a cozy couch to surf when they are in Mexico city or Amecameca. (actually now is a bed in privet room)

I also traveled with my best friend and Cousin, "Yosemite" we traveled with the lowest budget possible, to be able to explore more places and to meet more great people. (And we use my CS account)

I LOVE to cook, so I like to cook a meal for the ppl that I host or host me, or teach them some of my different skills, in exchange for the couch.. ;)

Who I'm:
TANIA is a 30 years old creative photographer, and such a romantic chica, she loves to write about life and love, is super friendly and outgoing person, super dynamic, free soul, extrovert and artistic. When was a child she dreamed to be a fire fighter, but unfortunately she couldn't do it in Mexico, but she found her way to help. 💖

Things I LOVE:
🌎My planet, nature, smile and make others smile too. Sharing moments and things. I love to dance, photography, hiking, exploring, talk, meet people, Love animals, volunteering, cooking, vegetarian. Deep house, festivals, BasicallyI love to get in love with whatever is new for me and will leave a big life lesson.

A bit about my cousin YOSEMITE
She is the funny one, I don't know if she studies a book of jokes or what, but she is always making everyone smile, which is great, she is a professional dancer, and also a mercadologa . she is outgoing, extrovert but a bit shy a t the same time.. Love to learn new things and share with other her knowledge of everything.

Tania's update 2016.
I converted to Islam

PHILOSOPHY

*If you see a Back packer, help him/her, is trying to explore ur country and to know more about ur culture.

*The Respect for the rights of others is peace.

*Leave no trace
*Never judge anyone.
* Enjoy your life and do what makes u happy

*When we are born we have nothing sure in life, only death. It is in yourself choosing how you want to live your life and who you want to live in it before you die. Life is so short that I do not want to waste it on regrets

*Live your life as you wish and let others live as they want....
I live to love and love living. Islam is my religion. I believe in compassion. I believe in respect, I believe in expression. I believe in karma. I believe that the world is a mess and needs fundamental change. And I believe that humanity is capable of that change.

LIVE, LOVE, LAUGh &TRAVEL

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm here since 7 years ago, because When I travel I want to meet local people and learn about their culture, and I can't do this in a hotel. Plus I like to leave a bit of myself too in every place I visit.
I can help travelers to find a family home, comfortable, and safe, with delicious homemade food... Take u to the waterfalls and to the national park "Iztapopo" to see the 2 most amazing volcanos in Mexico.
Give a cozy single bed to surf for few days, show the beauty places of my village, and give a photo tour around the volcanoes,

I made my parents to be part of this project. So far we have had amazing experiences being the host of around 15 persons from different places like, Spain, Canada, Oregon, California,Germany Venezuela, Russia, chec Republic, Taiwan, France, Pakistan, India and Mexico. we totally love this project, and we met a really good people, I'm so happy that I made a great and strong friendship with some of them.
See ya later hostels!! - we can't wait to host and know more cool people with awesome stories. and keep spreading the couch surfing love :)

in 2014 I went to shambhala, it blowed my mind
I pretended to be Brazilian to get in to a concert for free and I got free beers and food too, lol
Have waited 30 min in line out of a club in Canada at -30, with a bunch of CS from different countries... it was a cool and unforgettable night
