About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Being happy, happiness is when, what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

ABOUT ME

I like to meet people from different countries to learn things about their culture, beautiful places, always discover the amazing world. I enjoy so much the feeling of crossing a new borders, with new stories and people to meet. I am independent and I consider myself a diligent and voracious reader. I have been fascinated by languages, food, music, and NATURE, I do enjoy a nice conversation with open minded people. I am really enjoying CS because here I have found People like that!

PHILOSOPHY

The best remedy for the heart is letting go and accepting, In Japanese that's called shoganai. Accept Wath you cannot change and act upon what you can!. So, 'Enjoy life. Celebrate life.'

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I surfed a bit in my trip in South America, but just talking with people and on the way I find places to stay. Now I am starting to surf in England and Europe using Couchsurfing, I opened and account few years ago but I didnt have the change to travel since.
What makes a trip better than just seeing places is the people that you meet, and most of times, that is exactly what made your trip.

Interests

I like reading, traveling, cycling and discover new routes always I take my camera, I love photography, It’s actually quite an incredible transformation to experience, is amazing how you notice after the light, shapes, colours, textures, people, buildings, trees, flowers…everything around, you start to see the word differently.
About reading, I love Hispanic literature!
About traveling, I love traveling in South America and Asia are just Wonderful places, but now I am traveling a bit in Europe.

Music, Movies & Books

I really enjoy to listen indie rock bands as Yeah Yeah yeahs, metric, Arctic Monkeys, Cage the Elephant, The Door Cinema Club, The stokes, The Subways, Skirllex, Rudimental ... from my South America, Monsieur Perine, Bomba stereo, la Derecha, also I am really good dancing, Salsa and Zamba, I can tell you something I love the music a LOT, also I enjoy the Hindi and of course The belly dance, Instrumental music to meditate or read, Bossa Nova, Jazz and Blues to chill... Favorite movies are Dancing in the dark, Ma vie en rose, Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain , My own private Idaho, Betty Blue, Le grand Bleu, Cinema Paradiso, El olor de la papaya verde.
