About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy my hometown

ABOUT ME

I'm Flor. Born and raised in Buenos Aires.I love my city, love its people, its music, its weather, its sunsets. And I love say to it goodbye every now and then, pack my stuff and leave.

I study Literature so I read most of my time and when I sleep, I do it among books and papers. Meanwhile I listen to music, I do it since I wake up until bedtime, and sometimes I just don't turn it off.

Recently I found out I have a body. So now I enjoy it riding my bike everywhere and dancing tango. I love dancing, and I give a shit whether I look ridiculous or not. I've learnt as well that my life is mine and is the only one that I have. And I'm 25 years closer to be dead. So I try to find things that make me happy and fit them somehow in my daily schedule. I think this is a pretty simple and effective way of living, at least fot the moment.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm not able to host currently, since I still live in my little mom's house. But I'm always available for help couchsurfers, give some advices or good ideas about Buenos Aires, and -when work and study are not too heavy- go out for a coffe or a drink.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've been hosted for CS's all around Europe, New Zealand and Argentina. It was just amazing, much better than I expected. Some hosts were as interesting as their cities! Some of them still are my friends.

Teach, Learn, Share

I work teaching because it gives me the chance to learn constantly: learn from the books, from my students, from me and about me too. I love studying but I also think that there are many many many extremly important things that you can't learn in school or college. There are things that just can't be teached. Travelling is one of the best ways of learning. And sometimes unlearn certain things is the best way to get wiser.
