About Me


It is our responsability to enjoy life. How can I achieve it by sitting my ass in front of TV? It is not possible. My mission it to unveal the mistery of the unknown!!...by travelling.


Life is about having a good time. I think that knowing new people can be an exchange of experiences, of ways of enjoying life that makes you rich. I am willing to learn with locals and with fellow travellers.

I am passionate about folklore and languages. If you teach me some sentences in our language, I will be the happiest girl. It is very interesting for me when I just discover some music that I had not heard before.


If we learn we respect easier. The world is our school, people are the best teachers. Learn to be better

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Unfortunatelly I cannot host you because I live in an official building in Moscow but I would like to help you with information and we can share a cup of tea, walk, chat...


Since I found people´s hospitality through internet my ass could not stop somewhere any more!!

S. Petersburg, Siberia, Baikal, Kazan, Niznhy Novgorod, Kaliningrad Scotland - our HC host made our trip much better, indeed, it was the first time that my friend tried the club and she liked it Paris Sardinia - I wanted my friend Andrea to try HC and our host in cagliari was so nice!! It really helped us understand Sardinians, their personality and their history much better Stuttgart - Germany

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Russians tought me how nice it can be sharing a cup of warm tea, showing and seeing one's photos and chatting.

In the Sahara desert I played the flute and children sang. They taught me so much!

In Rajastan, India I spend one day in a shop. The shopkeeper, an honest seller from Kashmir taught me as much as I could learn about pashmina wool, shawls...

Teach, Learn, Share

Arts made me be interested in the expression of individuality. These sensations you can have or express and not anyone else. or even these ones unique in you but shared but someone else?
