About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living the la vida rica in Donostia-San Sebastián, cooking, eating, laughing.

ABOUT ME

I love to eat, to cook, to taste, to laugh and all that good stuff!

I'm into YOGA and MEDITATION and the UKELELE and just living a great life!

I also love bread and pastry and wine and fermentation and hearing about what your grandmother cooks and taking a lot of walks and observing things and enjoying sunshine and nature and swimming and breathing and culture and, oh yeah, food!

PHILOSOPHY

“I've decided to be happy, because it is good for my health.”

-Voltaire

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've been couchsuring for the past year. I have had amazing experiences with my hosts having crashed with kind folks in northern Italy, Morocco, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary and Spain.

I am very low maintenance and clean and responsible and we can hang out or you can set me loose--either way works. I do love to meet new, cool, international people! I especially love it when we do something crazy fun with food and wine too!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

When I travel, my goal is to always have a local and authentic experience and Couchsurfing always provides this! I want to meet real people, have real experiences, get local.

Interests

FOOD BREAD CHEESE WINE ORGANIC YOGA MEDITATION WALKIG CULTURE LANGUAGES SWIMMING LISTENING LAUGHING
