About Me

Hola! Gracias por tomarte un momento para leer sobre mi antes de enviar un request ☺

Soy de Colonia del Sacramento y me encanta juntarme con gente para mostrarles la ciudad y contarles sobre su historia y lugares :)
Me interesa conocer sobre otras realidades y simplemente charlar de lo que sea, pero mi casa no es un hostel y estoy aburrida de recibir mensajes del estilo "Hola Karen, llego mañana a Colonia, me puedo quedar en tu casa?". Si quieren mandarme request pongan en el título del mensaje una canción que les guste mucho y crean que debería escuchar :) Hospedo dos noches como máximo.

Viajando 7 1/2 meses me fue difícil conseguir hosts por lo que decidí hospedar gente que toma CS en serio.

NO VOY A HOSPEDARTE SI:
-no tienes tu perfil completo
-hospedas solo un género en específico
-usas CS solo para quedarte mientras viajas
-me mandas mensaje copiar/pegar

Hi there! Thanks for taking some minutes to read my info before sending a request 😊
I love meeting people and having nice talks about anything. I´m from Colonia and I love meeting CSs to show them round the city and tell them about its history and places :)
Even when I love all that,my house is not a hostel to stay and save some money and I'm bored by so many messages saying "hi Karen, I'll be in Colonia tomorrow can I stay at your place?" So if you wanna send a request write the name of a song you really like at the beginning of your message :) I host 2 nights max.

Travelling for 7 1/2 months it was hard to find hosts most of the time so I will only host people who take this site seriously.

I WILL NOT HOST YOU IF:
-your profile is not complete
-you host one specific gender
-you only use CS to stay with host while travelling
-you send a copy and paste message

PHILOSOPHY

you learn something new everyday...every person you meet makes you grow :)

se aprende algo nuevo cada día...cada persona que conoces te ayuda a crecer :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Recibo CS en mi casa cuando me es posible. También veo los viajes públicos y contacto viajeros por ahí para compartir un rato juntos.
Al viajar, no sólo busco hosts sino que uso mucho hangouts para conocer otros viajeros.

I host whenever I can. I also look at public trips and try to meet other travelers to share some time.
When I travel, I not only try to stay with hosts, but I also use hangouts a lot to meet other travelers.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Estoy aquí desde 2011 por lo que he visto como el sitio ha ido cambiando (en varios aspectos no para bien...). Sigo aquí porque me parece una oportunidad increíble para conocer gente de otras culturas.

I am around since 2011 so I have seen how the site has changed (not for the better in some ways...). I am still here because I believe it is an amazing opportunity to meet people from different cultures.
