About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living the life I want to live, traveling where I feel like, going for what I want

ABOUT ME

I'm a very positive and open minded person.

I like discovering new places and going anywhere, getting lost and surrounding myself of a new atmosphere.

It's impossible for me to pass swings without trying them out.

I enjoy building human castell (very popular in Catalonia) (Image here: http://www.costamiami.ru/assets/images/A00%20DIVER%20detallado/CIUDADES/Tarragona/castells_0015.jpg ), climbing, riding a bike (in general I like playing sports in the nature, if it's possible) and sometimes playing chess while listening great jazz/blues albums.

I'm not very well at describing myself, but I can definitely say that you would surely feel comfortable with me, breathing a peaceful and positive air. Otherwise you have to take the chance and discovering it by yourself!

PHILOSOPHY

Life is orange!

Try to do your best!

We all are a construction of our experiences; We are shaped by a host of critical moments that have made us who we are. Without those moments... would we be the ones who we are right now?

Meet people and wrap yourself in their essence. Once you know somebody, your both lifes change. Now you're part of that new life you've met, and that person is already part of yours.

My spirit recognizes yours, honor the light, love, beauty, truth, kindness within you that is also within me, and sharing these things there's no distance and no difference between us, because we are all the same, we all are one.

"Dear past, thanks for all the lessons. Dear future, I am ready"

If you never try, you'll never know

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is the best way of travelling, in any case!

If you cannot travel because of your work or whatever reason, bringing people to your place and getting to know they culture and life, is an alternative way of travelling indeed!

If you're travelling, getting to know local people is the best! As they can show you around and explain you some traditions of the place, as well as having the chance to have friends all around the places you're visiting!

It's really funny and interesting to know other people, and even more when you can find out they're completely diferent compared to you! It's great sharing points of view and learning to see further, with bigger perspectives, with each other's colaboration.

Interests

I like sports as building human castell, climbing, pirangue, hiking around mountains, trekking, rollerskating, cyling and snorkeling!

I like reading, too. Specially writters as Paulo Coelho, Angel Gonzalez, Mark Haddon and Khaled Hosseini are my favourites!. In general I enjoy whatever book which is about different philosophical points of view, criticism to any religion, adventures,... well I really have enjoyed almost every book I've had in my hands; whatever topic is welcome!

I enjoy watching any good film with friends and a portion of microwave popcorn. No popcorn, no movie..

I use to like a lot people that teach me something new! That's not pretty hard though..

Music, Movies & Books

Rock and metal music used to be my favourite ones, specially Escape the Fate, Of Mice & Man, Nirvana, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys,... but nowadays I've been hearing to Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam, Johnny Cash... and they really take my breath away. I also hear classic music as Bach, Schubert, Chopin, Grieg and Paganini.

I enjoy jazz and blues as well. There's a moment for every kind of music, though.

There are a few books I enjoyed a lot such as "The Kite Runner", "the wind's shadow", "the Rotters' club" or "the alchemist", but I gotta say that I use to carry books with me and I liked most of the ones I've read!

About movies, there are a lot of interesting movies, I like too much movies so I cannot have a favourite one, but the last ones I've seen that I truly recomend are: "The Untouchables", "The Wave", "Hysteria", "The reader", "Schindler list" and "Into the wild".

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've fell from a castell and I'm still alive.
I have seen the most wonderful sky full of stars from my house's roof.
I see stories in most of people's eyes every day.
Hitchhiking Western Europe and Scandinavia by my own... and that's not finished, Asia coming soon!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach to build human castells.

How a Dane goes partying! Western Scandinavia style!

I can also teach how to climb in a mountain. (not at an expert teacher, but anyway as a fanatic one)

Can teach basic guitar and ukulele playing! Singing and having fun included ;))

I can teach cooking spanish and catalan food. I also know how to cook some Indian, German, Danish and Italian food

What I Can Share With Hosts

My friends use to say that I'm a smiling crazy girl, so I can surely make you feel comfortable and happy, we can have short or long conversations and we can talk about any non sense or the reason of life; any topic is good!

I can share my experiences while travelling!
