About Me

I am a free spirit! I have a blog where I share travel stories. I used to be a crew member on board cruise ships which allowed me to visit about 15 countries. I managed to visit the rest by myself ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to travel for long periods of time to dip into different cultures. At the end, travelling is about the people you meet on your path. When I'm at home, I like to meet travellers and show them around or go for a drink. I like to share with people that see a friend in me, not just a "tourist guide" or translator (it happened before... next time I'll charge for that :P)


“Relájate”, le dijo el ruso a la chilena. Pero la chilena tiritaba. Le vendaron los ojos, la sujetaron entre dos. La chilena se dejó llevar. El ruso le lanzó cinco cuchillos que reventaron cinco globos estratégicamente ubicados en su cuerpo: uno en su boca, otro bajo cada brazo, otro entre las rodillas y uno en cada mano. La chilena se sacó la venda y dejó escapar una tremenda carcajada. Esta era mi primera experiencia en Couchsurfing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A russian guy, who I barely knew, threw knives to my body and face while I was blind folded, does it count?
