About Me

"Find your spot on earth ... and ride it.... cos happiness is a lifestyle not a destination!"

It´s kinda of hard talking about oneself so I let other to meet me and get their own conclusions. But what i can say is that i love spending time at the beach, meeting new pple, diving (mostly water sports). I enjoy learning new things, this is what its all about meeting new places and cultures.

I´m a Lost cause , a Runaway train. A Goddess on a highway soaked up in Rain. With an Everlasting love for life and its Mysterious ways.
A Dreamer , Trying to get heaven. I still havent found what I´m looking for, but I´m One step closer each day.
Trying to throw my arms around the world.


* Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

* Opening yourself to the world is what freedom its about.

* Don´t try to look like a model... be a STAR cos they last longer!

* I dUnNo haVe eduCaTioN- I hAve inSpiRatiOn. If I wERe edUcAteD, I'd be a dAmN f()()l

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing for me brings a lot of good memories, it all started when i first travelled on my own and i found good people helping me to sort my travel plans while on the road, there is when i found this website... i first participated as an outsider then got involved in the community... but why? I guess was the law of mass attraction, people that have a vibration for something when they get together it simply attracts.

Couchsurfing is about sharing, meeting and learning. It is not about a free place to sleep when traveling people generally get the wrong about it, when doing a conscious couchsurfing lifestyle it gives you unique experiences and i feel thankful because it has been due to CS, I have meet wonderful people in here, had found myself a family when travelling and why not friends for life.

I think couchsurfing has this amazing motto or website phylosophy; which is true, couchsurfing gives you security, the support and help needed when traveling and the cherry top: it contributes to experience and enjoy your trip in an unconventional way, how? by living it with the locals and not only through a travel agency.

Music, Movies, and Books

For some people music is just a bunch of beats and words making a rhyme but for me music is all you, it´s the perfect fitting for your lifestage (as a soundtrack), I guess because it plays all sort of rythms according to our moods. When music is played it activates all sort of feelings: anger, sadness, happiness, desire... music changes the world.
As a human being in this world to what do i listen? I have no preference at all, my ears like to experiment new vibrations i can go on and listen from Ella Fitzgerald to modern rock like Stone Sour, so try me and get surprised i like to be acknowledge of new genres so bring it on and show me the soundtrack you play in your life c",)

Jus a reference to what i have in my playlist: Aterciopelados, Amy Winehouse, Cepeda, Donavon, Johnson, Cerati, Calamaro, Café Tacuba, Clapton, Elvis, Etta James, Foo Fighters, Frank Sinatra, Franz Ferdinand, Oasis, Fink, Three days grace, Héctor Lavoe, Santarosa, Juan Luis Guerra, Carlos Vives, Manu Chao, Molotov, Norah Jones, Timbaland, UB40, B Marley, The weekend, Skindred, Stone Sour, RED, Active Child, Seafret and more.
