"Don't forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!"

Couchsurfing has enriched my life over the years, and I couldn't imagine having traveled without it. I've extended trips, visited places I would have never gone before, and been a repeat visitor to so many places because of the extraordinary friends I have made through CS.
Life is one grand adventure and I'm trying to make the most out of every moment!
I believe that the best things in life are free....smiles and hugs, friendship and love, hiking in silence, a universe of stars, good company, happiness, any special shared moment, frolicking and gallivanting, meeting new people...
"Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength." --Corrie ten Boom
Every time an opportunity comes my way, I ask myself ¨Why not?¨ I try to take advantage of every opportunity because I never know what I might miss out on, and I´m not willing to regret what I have not done.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I couch surf! I travel with couch surfers! I meet them everywhere! And I host when I have a place available!
So many great experiences that have led to even better experiences.
I have to thank CS for introducing me to some of my best friends in the world including: Janna Alluaca (Ecuador), Mazen Masshadani(Syria) and Edison Candia Romero (Peru).
Some highlights are: cycling to Ingapirca with Geovanny and Fernando (CS Guayaquil, Ecuador), celebrating Ruben's birthday in Mompiche, Ecuador and camping in Bedouin tents with CSers in Syria.
scuba diving, snorkeling and free diving!!
Spear fishing and lobster diving
Skiing (downhill and cross country)
eating food and drinking coffee, cooking, baking
riding my bicycle until my butt is soar
dancing like crazy, especially merengue, salsa, bachata and reggaeton
Music, Movies, and Books
bachata, world beat, The Beatles, Turkish pop, I'll admit my love for Beyonce; rock, salsa, reggaeton, merengue,hip hop, a little bit of everything!
I like movie forums where you discuss the movie with friends and strangers after you have all watched it together!
My favorite movie is City of God/ Cidade de Deus/ Ciudad de Dios
Also love Inception and Butterfly Effect
I love going to plays, operas, musical and dance performances, lectures...basically anything with a live performance!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've climbed to the point on earth closest to the Sun (Mt. Chimborazo, Ecuador)
Teach, Learn, Share
Teach: I can teach you how to make a compost bin...I'm sure I know how to do other things...
Learn: There's nothing I wouldn't be willing to learn! Especially interested in languages and learning to play an instrument
f.y.i: I'm not musically talented...I may even be considered tone deaf, I will try to learn an instrument or to dance with rhythm, but beware!
What I Can Share with Hosts
Love, a big smile and probably a home made meal
