About Me

I was born in Medellin, Colombia and grew up in Florida most of my life. I have studied and lived abroad in Germany and France. I did my Bachelors in Economics and International Studies with a focus on Europe :) I love to travel and explore new places. This summer after I graduated I grabbed a small purple backpack and went off around Eastern Europe for 2 months. I also saw some Western European countries as well and met a ton of backpackers. It was the first time that I traveled alone and it was the coolest experience ever. Throughout my travels I met so many people who did couchsurfing and I finally did it in Bratislava 3 weeks ago. I loved the experience and I want to continue doing it to click with locals and get a unique experience. I love practicing languages, going out dancing, cooking, eating, and doing some exercise with friends.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To see new places and meet great people.

The best experiences have happened by going out of my comfort zone, and the coolest places I've seen in cities around the world has been through locals.

I'd love to grab a beer, hear about the city, and go out for a good time.

Fun fact... I love the free walking tours hahaha
