About Me


Stuff my eyes with wonder


A happy nihilist, a frustrated writer, an unconditional dancer, an experimental cook, a pragmatic tree-huger, a timemaniac, a confused world-trotter with a chronic tendency to ask hard questions.


Wake up and go to bed with a smile + Remind myself everyday to remain a human being vs. a human doing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been living abroad for almost seven years now and since I started couchsurfing I feel that home is wherever people make you feel welcomed and at ease.


I hitch-hiked across Southern Europe, USA and Latin America and stayed with a lot of different couchsurfers. Each of them amazingly interesting and kind to let me peak into their own universes. In Buenos Aires and in Berlin (where I was new to the cities), the couchsrufing groups became my best sources of fun, great discussions and suggestions to feel more than a transient inhabitant of the city. Now I'm living alone for the first time and I am ready to explore the Hostess side of this amazing initiative.


1) Dance, dance, dance! Seriously anything, anytime, anywhere. Recently I also found out that
2) cooking is so much fun, especially combined with dancing in the kitchen to some old school rock and roll.
2) Urban Exploration: eclectic bars, literary cafes, unusual corners, dumpster diving...
3) Travelling without a plan.
