About Me


Survive Real Life until my next trip, wherever that is....


I grew up in Bogota, Colombia until I finished undergrad and then I moved to Miami...

At the beginning I wasn't too crazy about my decision but with time South Florida grew on me. But after more than 10 years I decided to take a chance and leave my routine, family and friends and took a job in Burlington, Vermont. I'm still adjusting to the changes, but so far, I can say that Burlington is a beautiful place and New England has a lot of things to see and do, and can't wait to start exploring

I'm really laid back, down to earth, jeans and t-shirt kind of person. I love meeting people from all over the world and all walks of life.

I'm very friendly, open-minded and up for anything (almost anything). After all, you only live once!!!!


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I try to participate in local events and host people whenever time allows. I've had the chance to meet great people in CS and hope to continue doing so.


people have hosted me in Copenhagen (Denmark), Stockholm (Sweden), Oslo (Norway), Athens (Greece), Chicago, Portland, Seattle. I've hosted people from France, Denmark, Poland, Germany, Australia and the list keeps growing.
Great experiences so far!!!!!!!
