About Me


Teaching Spanish to Swedish pupils in Arvidsjaur :) I did that during 6 years in Sorsele, a nearby municipality


I'm living in north of Sweden. I cannot describe how amazing life is here for people who love the nature and calm.
I'm learning a lot here, new experiences and getting to know nice new people, from my pupils to pensioners. But it's really hard to make friends...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's always great to meet new people from other countries, hear their experiences around the world, make small trips around and cook new recipes with them.


Prehistory, Archaeology, History, Politics, Music,
Trips around Europe (I love Europe!!!),
I love to hang out with friends mostly in a quiet place outdoors, visit new villages and woods in the mountains, explore caves or so in beaches, I love also to take photos mostly without people (old towns, beaches, mountains, northen lights...)
I like to drink coffee specially with ice :)
I love to cook and eat with friends...
