Please don't contact me if you are looking for a date.
I am quiet, sociable and independant. Apparently, I am curious, but I remember I was not really a curious child. I like to learn from the life's choice of persons I meet, to share experience of travel and of everyday life, ideas and dreams, to cook together, drink a good tea or a glass of wine with a friend, and laugh.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
My first CouchSurfing Experience was in Toronto, in Canada. The home of the girl who hosted me was an amazing welcoming cozy and messy place, with nice christmas lights blinking in the night. I met an amazing person. We talk until late about books and had tea for hours even if we were both tired. It was "as if" we knew each other for a long time and were meeting again after a long time. Now, each time we are in the same continent or country we try to meet, and we give each other some news through airmail. My (now) friend stayed with me in Berlin, I went back to Toronto, we met for dinner in Paris this year, and she hosted me again in the Spring.
Since then, I have been lucky to be hosted by wonderful people mostly in the United States and in Mexico. People are coming and going and I was happy to meet them again, it was a pleasure to meet Alejandro in Paris and to be able to host him, and spend some time with him and a friend of mine in my home town, after he showed me his, in Mexico.
As I am often traveling, hosting has been more difficult these past years, but I update my profile when I can host.
reading, writing, looking at cityscapes, going to the cinema, watching movies, visiting art museums, parks, mountain hiking, riding, biking, picnic, cooking, strolling, etc.
