About Me

Hola! I'm Cristina and I'm from Barcelona. I'm a bit (quite) shy, but friendly and open minded :)

Nowadays I'm studying Arabic Philology at university and would like to become a translator and teacher someday. I love languages. I also love photography, cinema, books and drawing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm here to meet people from around the world to exchange culture and knowledge. I also love my city and like to show its beautiful sights and secrets :)

Interests

I like to read, being these days specially interested in science ficiton, I like to play music (or at least try to play), the things I can make sound more or less are the guitar, the ukulele and the piano. I'm interested in photography and I love going out with a camera as much as enjoying a good film, I also draw and learn different languages because it's fun and a way of opening one's mind and reach to foreign cultures.
