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!! 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, roaming around from one corner of the world to another one, but I can bring you stories from places afar. I can also give you a hand with languages.


Since I found people´s hospitality through internet my bottom could not stop anywhere 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
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

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - The conservatory gave me the gift of appreciating almost any kind of music. I am interested in any music that you would like to show me.I usually listen to English language music during winter, ethnical music during spring time or when I cook, always classical music, latin music... everything.

Movies - Good bye Lenin. Cidade de Deus. Diarios de motocicleta. Water-Fire-Earth. Babel. Tsotsi. Palestine now. Kill Bill. Frankenstein. Potemkin. The great escape. Full metal jacket. Out of Africa. Dancing in the dark. Amelie. Foreign culture movies

Books about the history of the peoples from Siberia, the sovietization in Central Asia, sociolinguistics, phsychology, philosophy, minorities, local customs... Federico garcia Lorca's poetry. I have recently discovered Nicholas Roerich´s paintings and his project
Comic - Calvin and Hobbes. Mafalda.
Cartoon - The simpsons. Southpark.

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. Four years in the Russian giant and I survived!

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

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

I taught some language lessons to children in Africa and my students improvised a dancing party for me outside my bedroom.

The Irish are the kindest strangers ever. Three years living in Ireland account for that.

No, I haven´t slept in a monk monastery in Burma or Laos, not yet.

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?

What I Can Share with Hosts

Stories. Music. The moment.
