About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Not to stop

ABOUT ME

As a possible future anthropologist (which I hope will happen) I MUST be in couch surfing. Well, I guess it's not necessary to say that one of the things that I love the most is knowing different cultures and people from all around. That's mainly what my studies are about! Apart from that, I think it's quite complicated to describe myself, I think others who know me would do it much better than me. Maybe it's that I am not just in "one way", but I adapt depending on the people I am with. It's quite fun.
So yes, this is basically me, someone who's not sure of what she is, but still knows what she wants!

PHILOSOPHY

Be rare.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I would like to host people visiting my hometown, and I'd like to be hosted in every single spot of the world... not a big deal :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted a bunch of couch surfers in Barcelona (and some in Lausanne, Switzerland), I've been hosted in some occasions too, and all my experiences have been absolutely great.
I'm glad to have had the oportunity of creating new amazing experiences through this community.

Interests

I guess my interests will change, appear and disappear, but for now I can say that I like cinema (it's one of the main interests I have), reading, some photography (trying to learn some more about it right now), meeting new people just to share experiences... I can easily become interested on other people's interests if they transmit their passion about them. I'm really interested in cooking also, although the best part is when eating. I love to taste food from every single country.
And I imagine there's no need to say that travelling more and more is basically what I want to be doing in life, and that's one of the reasons why I'm here.

Music, Movies & Books

I love cinema, so I'll mention some of my favourite directors and specific movies of them that I particularly like:
Jim Jarmusch (Down by law), Bernardo Bertolucci (The Dreamers), Jean-Luc Godard (A bout de souffle), Roberto Benigni (Il mostro), Marx Bros. (Duck Soup), Pedro Almodóvar (Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios), Isabel Coixet (Things I never told you), Alfonso Cuarón (Y tu mamá también), Giuseppe Tornatore (Cinema Paradiso), Richard Linklater (Waking life)

And also: Goodbye Lenin, Mio fratello è figlio único, This is England, Buffallo '66, Paris je t'aime, Coffee and Cigarettes, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Tsotsi, Stealing beauty, Le temps qui reste, My life without me, Lolita, Enemy at the gates...

"The Prophet" is my favourite book, and I am quite open to any kind of music (with some exceptions, of course).
