About Me

CURRENT MISSION

travel, dream, write

ABOUT ME

I like traveling almost as much as I like being at home, curled up with a book or doing some writing, playing some music, cooking something experimental...
I think the best part of a place is the people you get to meet and learn from and share time with.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host people sometimes and surf sometimes. A lot of the time I'm travelling in non CS related trips. I love hosting, looking after people, opening my doors.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I was always a bit jealous of my Mexican friends because they usually have very large families spread across the country, and they got to travel a lot because they would always have a home away from home packed with welcoming relatives that cooked delicious food and asked for nothing in return. CS makes the whole world one big family, in a way. Um, does this sound too cheesy?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Travelling to really remote villages in the Sierra de Durango, north of Mexico, and eating Easter feasts at local people's family homes. Hitch-hiking. Lucid dreaming *a bit!. Doing a 10 day silent meditation retreat. Moving to Scotland randomly. Going to the Fairy Glenn on Uig, Isle of Skye. Reading at poetry festivals/playing gigs. Meeting the most interesting people and making the most amazing friends.
