About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get back on the road...

ABOUT ME

I believe in silence, in laughter, in balance, in nature, in magic, in me. I like to do things well, with passion, with taste. Life is what you make of it and everyone has the one they want.

PHILOSOPHY

Travel light, live light, spread the light, be the light.

Get up, survive, go back to bed.

Work like you don't need the money, dance like no one is looking, love like you've never been hurt.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like to travel and I like travelers. I wanna help them as much as I can. I've been out there in need of somewhere to stay, someone to talk to and show me around. So, this is it. People sharing their homes and their time...makes me smile, makes me feel human again.

Interests

I dance, I walk, I swim, I read, I stare, I listen, I dream. Love wine, good food, great conversations, small beautiful useless objects, sand in my feet, the smell of books, the sight of people having fun, tea, plants, fashion, getting into bed with clean sheets, jazz, wood, design furniture, history, taking baths, art.
