About Me

PhD student spending nine months in England. I really love travel and since I started my research about urban ecology and green infrastructure, I'm crazy about going to the European Green Capitals and other cities with strategies to retain and preserve urban biodiversity.
I'm new in Couchsurfing. I can't host people in my house because I live at the student village, but I'm available to go out for drinks, chat or just to be a company for walk around Manchester!
I'm a easy going person, i really like to chat and know different people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To be able to know people from different cultures! And there is no better way to know a different place with a native or local people!
Besides that I'm a student and I want and need to go to a lot of cities with little money.... hehehe!


I really enjoy nature and the urban life, so two years ago I decided to join my two interests and start to work with then! In this way now I want to know cities with green strategies to preserve biodiversity inside of the urban landscape, and at the same time, improving the human quality of life.
