About Me


`wherever you go , there you are`


sou gringa louca!


if your past is present can you ever get to the future?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been fortunate to have lived on the islands of Fernando de Noronha (Brasil), curacao (in the caribbean, netherlands antilles), gili trawangan and bali in indonesia, and exmouth, western Australia, so happy to help if anyone has questions about living/visiting/diving there...


i was generously hosted by a German CSer in Austria, served as local tour guide for a visiting Belgian CSer in Western Australia, had dinner with a South American CSer in the Caribbean, traveled with a Malaysian CSer via Bali in Hungary, and try to help out global CSers everywhere and online with travel tips and connections to places I have lived whenever I can
