About Me


In Life: to Explore, Meet, See, Experience and Love. In CS: giving and receiving reasons to Smile.


To live and travel throughout the world, made me realize that the only way to find happiness is by enjoying life.

I left the corporate gig to run my two passions: Cometa Web Solutions and Touring About. www.cometawebsolutions.com is a design, software, web development and IT consulting company. www.touringabout.org offers affordable programs to study and volunteer abroad. This gives me flexibility to live life freely and make my own schedule.

I love meeting new diverse cultured people from around the world. In love with the simple things of life, enjoy all the little bits.


Carpe Temporare! Seize the instant - because we haven't got all day! I believe that life is short and that we should make the most of each precious moment we are here.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My goal as CS Nomadic Ambassador is to dance salsa with (at least) one person of every country of the world.


Making real friends being hosted or hosting is the best experience I can have!!
