About Me

Hi ! I'm a curious person who loves discovering our planet. I love getting immersed in new environments and meeting new people. Yes, like everybody here.
I have travelled a little bit, I had the chance to live in 3 different continents (South America, Europe and South-East Asia) but woow, the more I travel, the more I realise how huge our planet is.
I like listening, learning and observing the environment that surrounds me with curiosity and respect.
I basically love enjoying these little things in life that are so natural and so important: nature, food, music, friends, landscapes...

PHILOSOPHY

I love the "carpe diem" philosophy and thinking positive...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I participated in CS in so many ways by hosting people, attending regular and language meetings, hanging out with couchsurfers around different cities around the world

I work but I try to spend time with couchsurfers and showing them the city I´m living in, Paris. It's always a pleasure to meet brave travelers :).

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have had so many experiences with couchsurfing, in both ways (surfing and hosting) Overall, I must say they are positive! I met incredible people with amazing backgrounds, amazing experiences, incredible dreams and wanting to share the CS vibe :).

Interests

I love travelling (if it wasn t clear yet :)...), listening to music, reading, going out , getting lost in cities, talking about life or philosophy with good friends in a good bar (or in a bad bar, :)). I love learning new languages, dancing...

In the city, I love riding bikes. it´s a powerful feeling, especially when you have the road only for yourself...or amazing landscapes ;).
...and the beach, listening to the waves breaking, the wind...
I love also spontaneous gatherings, parties and unexpected amazing, wonderful plans :=)

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: American beauty, Amelie, a clockwork orange, the Truman show, Match Point, Pulp fiction, Kill bill (part 1 and 2), Big Fish...

Music: I like different kinds of music: rock and indie rock ( Peter Bjorn and John, Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, Clap your hand say yeah, White Stripes, Kaiser chiefs, Klaxons, Lily Allen), and also classical music and instrumental music (Beethoven, Saranbande, Surjan Stevens, Belle and Sebastian). for going out, more electro/techno...
I also like Crystal Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, Placebo, Deerhunter, Birdy Nam Nam, 2manydjs, Arcade Fire, Magnetic Man, Tame Impala
Books: I love books with surrealism and magic ( Paulo Coelho, Julio Cortázar, Paul Auster...)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Going as solo traveler to Myanmar and Thailand for a couple of weeks. It was amazing, in every single way. I met the most amazing people ever and I enjoyed beautiful landscapes...

The first time your feet touch the sand and the first time you go into the sea (of the year). simply AWESOME! Summer starts in that precise moment for me :)

Nature: Amazing thing ever!

Staying in Paris longer than expected, looking for a job and surviving :)

one thing is for sure: Traveling brings amazing things!

Teach, Learn, Share

All right... I can give you a lot of nice vibes!
:)Also, I cook pasta pasta for you ( improving in new sauces). I can teach you some Spanish (my mother tongue). I can try with Italian and English :). I want to learn more about other countries and people, yeah!.
I can also share my stories ( and you can share yours :)).

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share conversations, a welcome tea/coffee when you arrive, good recommendations of what to do in Paris, my language skills, I cannot guarantee I can share a meal with you, that would depend on my schedule and my willing to cook :) If you feel like cooking, we can discuss about that before coming to my place.
If we have shared interests (such as art, history, movies, etc), I will also try to share an event with you.
Whenever possible, I try to show you a part of Paris. Again, not guaranteed, that will depend on my schedule and if I have enough energy :)
