About Me

Hi! I am Lu, an Argentine with Spanish and Croatian background and love hanging out with people from different places to share our cultures :) I traveled on my own for the first time at 18, moved abroad at 24 and lived in New Zealand, Australia, Spain, Germany, and a bit in England and the Netherlands, which all really opened my mind. I love chilling by the beach with a good book, getting lost in cities, wandering in forests and I rock the dancefloor from time to time :)
I was an English teacher for many years and loved it as I've met heaps of amazingly interesting people through it, but I switched to the translation industry a couple of years ago because I needed a new challenge, so I am now a copy editor and project manager for translations related to clinical research. Veeery different and am learning a lot too!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to continue meeting people from different backgrounds :)

I believe CS is a great way to socialise with people you might have not met otherwise, and it's fantastic to see a new place through the eyes and culture of a local person!

Interests

Reading, traveling, writing, watching films, hiking, sharing some drinks and meals with friends, learning about other cultures, experiencing new things.

Music, Movies, and Books

Love magic realism and postcolonial lit. Now getting into non-fiction and loving it!
100 Years of Solitude (G. Garcia Marquez), Atonement (Ian McEwan), The Art of Travel (Alain De Botton)
Americanah (Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie), The Shadow of the Wind (Carlos Ruiz Zafon), The God of Small Things (Arundathi Roy), The Remains of the Day (Kazuo Ishiguro), Never Let Me Go (Kazuo Ishiguro), The World of Yesterday (Stefan Zweig).
We can share book tastes in Goodreads if you are interested :)

I listen to a bit of everything and like listening to the radio when I'm traveling to get acquainted with the music from the place I am in.
Tracy Chapman, Train, Dave Matthews' Band, Leiva, Adele, Andres Calamaro, Joaquin Sabina, Jack Johnson, Fat Freddy's Drop, etc.

Love watching films of any kind, love historical ones, epics and the usual chick flick.
Atonement, Amelie, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Un Cuento Chino, Before Sunrise/Sunset, Into the Wild, Forrest Gump

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I am an adrenaline junkie, have skydived and bungy jumped a couple of times and love everything involving speed.
I was also shooting champion in Argentina 4 years in a row (from 12 to 15 years old :)) with my .22 carabine - I only shot circular paper targets, never animals or people :D

What I Can Share with Hosts

Coffee, beers, meals, long talks and walks, dance moves… life!
