About Me

CURRENT MISSION

TAKING THE BEST OUT OF LIFE, LAUGHING AS MUCH AS I CAN, AND KILLING A GUITAR FROM TIME TO TIME...

ABOUT ME

I'm a dreamer and plan to be a dreamer for the rest of my life. I used to be afraid of life until I decided to move to a country totally different to mine, and being there I kind of found myself and understood that you only live once and that one day that passes by is one day less to do all that's out there for us to witness and experience, So here I am a 22 years old lady that have been in 9 countries met hundreds of people in each place I've been to, speaks two languages have had about 15 different jobs and tasted all kinds of food....

and some general info.... I love music, watching films and taking pictures. I like walking, and spending time with old and new friends.

PHILOSOPHY

Carpe Diem live and let live!! look into your heart and you'll find love. life is too short to waste time in other people's business. live today as this were the last day of your life.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

although I cannot host people now, I´m up for coffee, or walks in he park. I love meeting new people, listening to their stories and telling them the good things about my country .

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I was backpacking for a while in Europe and found couches and people from Cs in every place I went to. I have hosted only twice and everything was great!! I love couch surfing, is a great idea, I have made many good friends thanks to CS, you will always find amazing people with huge hearts and great stories!!!

Interests

Film photography traveling books walking eating!! :p dancing (sometimes)

Music, Movies & Books

I like mistery and historical films, anything with good content.First tittles that come to my mind... INTO THE WILD, ANYTHING BY CHAPLIN, LA ESTRATEGIA DEL CARACOL, THE GREEN MILE, WATER, CAST AWAY, ANYTHING BY ALMODOVAR, and the list goes on... the same with books I like fiction and thrillers, one of my fovourites is Misery by Stephen King. Music: I am a very open-minded person I like from reggae, heavy metal, violin and piano to the music from my country which I really enjoy when I'm on party mood. I do appreciate and respect some other genres. everything depends on my mood.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

THE PYRAMIDS!!!!! Oh my God i cannot describe how amazed I was standing in front of the pyramids. Not even the sun would bother me, I was really stunned was a dream come true i hope i can go back there some day. Also I climbed the Sinai Mountain, I have never done something like that before we started climbing at one or in the morning to be at the pick by sunrise, was the most beautiful thing i have ever experienced in my life, the view, the weather, the people I was with, every single detail was perfect.

Teach, Learn, Share

i could share my passion for Photography and music, currently I am trying to learn how to play guitar i don't have much free time to practice but I'm trying to do my best, i like esoteric stuff i read the runes or i try at least, these are ancient symbols used by the Celtics to gain insight into present and future- LEARN: FRENCH, ITALIAN, PORTUGUESE, HOW TO COOK, TO PLAY VIOLIN, PHOTOGRAPHY TECHNIQUES, MUSIC FROM EVERY CORNER OF THE WORLD... is an endless list.
