About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Save enough money to travel and make my husband love travelling as much as I do

ABOUT ME

I would like to say I'm an adventurer but the truth is that these days I'm a full-time teacher and a multi-online-courses student. I'm recently married and my husband and I are a DINKY couple so when I'm free, I love spending time with him and we both like doing different activities as a couple or we organize activities with our families or friends such as going to concerts, parties, picnics, museums, day offs, etc.

PHILOSOPHY

EMBRACE LIFE!!

SELF-EMPOWERMENT TO THRIVE!

"You only have control over 3 things in your life - your thoughts, the images you visualize and the actions you take. How you use these 3 things determines everything you experience!"

"€œTwenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn'€™t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."€“ Mark Twain

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Personally, I love travelling and meeting people!!! To meet people from different places, I have done different activities such as working at the international airport, being a volunteer tourist guide in a Museum, being a volunteer in the international AIDS Congress, teaching and learning languages, getting married (LOL)...and of course CS! During this time I have participated: -Showing people around my city and sharing a bit of what I know and like. -As I'm a language teacher and language learner I've tried some Tandem Language Exchange. -I've hosted some CS'ers. We have cooked, laughed,done yoga, and had amusing pijama parties :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

In a short period of time at CS I have met a bunch of wonderful people from my own city/country and from other parts of the world. I have shared and showed them the things and places I know well and I have tried lots of new things at their side. I have also practised the languages I'm learning, learned about foreing places and got tips about what to do and where to go in my own city and the places I've visited.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Ride a horse in a cloudy day, snorkel at the coral reef in the Caribbean sea, love deeply and freely no matter how long it lasts, travel overseas for love's sake, see a meteor shower in the middle of a dark road, feel I was in a fairyland of language when I was in Italy, experience il bel far niente, eat amazing local food, remodel an old abandoned apartment and make it a home...

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm willing to learn and teach you as much as I can. I can show you around Mexico city... because I love my hometown!

I'm learning Japanese and Italian so I would be pleased if somebody contacts me to practise these languages. I can help with Spanish and English.

As languages are my passion I have created two blogs to help people with their Spanish and English. In case you want a specific topic, ask for it and I'll post it!
