About Me


Long-term travel. To be able to stay at different places in the world and live like the locals. To learn different cuisines and share the stories on a blog.


I love to dance to latin songs and cooking for friends. I could go extremes, stay in fine places or crash in budget hostels. I want to create a meaningful existence by helping people. I love going to the mountains. I support minimalism.


A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery while on a detour.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I love that there is a community of like-minded individuals online. Travel is a great passion of mine and making new friends. I am working on becoming a nurse so I can travel and help people all over the world.

Even before Couchsurfing, I spent a month in Europe staying at friends' extra rooms. Discovering this site made me ecstatic because it is a great resource of backpackers aiming to help each other in their travels. I have met some people from this site and they are all talkative, interesting and adventurous!

Once I graduate, I will be travelling more. Send me a message if you like to go for coffee or do some hiking. I will take you to the good places that I know here in Vancouver. I live in downtown so if you are in the area and you need help, message me.


Dancing. Travel. Exotic food. Nature walks. World music. Hiking mountains.

Music, Movies & Books

Random compilations from Songza. I listen to Indie, Latin and Brazilian music mostly. The Chicago movie soundtrack, I love that!!!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Backpacking for two months around South America. I realized that long-term travel is the way to go. This experience made me confident in exploring other countries in the same manner.
