About Me

PLEASE READ BEFORE COUCH REQUESTING!!!!!
READ READ READ! Because writing takes time, so does reading. (we've read yours!)

It all started in 2012 when we decided to join couchsurfing. At first we couldn't believe that something like this would be possible. However, we were wrong, proving once again that incredible people exist all around the world and have the guts to host and be hosted at a stranger's house or place. We've experienced both, as a host and a visitor and let us tell you that it was worth it!

We are a crazy happy couple! And our main goal is to meet new people from other countries and learn about their culture and also assist them with anything they would possibly need. We don't expect nothing in return.

We're from Buenos Aires, Argentina and also New Jersey, U.S. (We were both borned in Argentina but Julian also has family in the U.S.) and we've known each other since we started college and we've been together since then. We are both doing courses of studies on Graphic Design, Art and all about films and movies at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA/FADU).
We both work at the same place, our home! We paint, draw (both manual and digital) and also animate in 2d. Being and artist is really difficult, although that' what we love to do.
We are cool vegetarians!!! We don't hate meat, we don't eat it either, however we do respect people who eat meat. Don't worry we won't bother you! ;)
We like going out, meeting new people and making new friends. We are looking foward to new experiences in life such as visiting new places and travel, so that's why we decided to join Couchsurfing in the search of other fellow travellers that would help us in our journey.
We are very open-minded, polite, also very considerate, kind, friendly, and responsible. Yes, we're positive people!
We both speak fluent Spanish, and English.
After hosting our first surfers we realised there is more out there than we thought. It blew our minds,and the experience is worth it.

María FLORENCIA Blanco
HI! I'm the film and Disney addict! I enjoy mostly all art expressions. I love to draw all kinds of stuff, but my main focus is on animals, furry, anime style mixed with disney style (pretty specific, isn't it?)
I have a pet cat called Guy de Maupassant, it's and extraordinary cat.
I enjoy:
Soccer, photography, studing languages, going out, dancing, writting, reading, sleepingzzzzzz, winter,foxes, cats, and the list goes on and on...
I don't enjoy:
hmmm..... extremely hot weathers

Like Flor I also enjoy doing art! Right now I'm studying and working as a freelance Graphic Designer/Illustrator and focusing on animation.
I consider my self a gamer addict (It all begun when I played with that Nintendo console... sigh.) But I'm not into MMORPGs. VideoGames gave me the idea to become a great concept artist.
And I really take exercising seriously, always trying to push it to the limit!
I delivered a passion for reptiles and I own one called "Sandocan".

I enjoy:
Coffee, cooking, challenges,Vegetarianism, doing exercise, yoga, painting, drawing, reptiles, dragons, mythology, Gaming, learning languages...
I don't enjoy:
Asthma, politics, fake people
