About Me


I've started traveling with my boyfriend in April 2016 all through Argentina, Brazil coast. We went back to Argentina for a month and in January 2017, we continued our trip in Lima and up to the north of Peru, then Ecuador, Colombia, Brazilian Amazon, Guyane and Surinam. We're just finishing our trip, so later we'll go back to Brazil and fly back home by mid-December. We're showing everything about our trip here:

Now we're working over the internet while we travel, this is a way of living, not just a hobby. We consider ourselves Digital nomads. I am teaching Spanish over Skype and translating for a living.


I was born in São Paulo (Brazil) but I've lived in Quilmes (very near Buenos Aires) my whole life. I'm a digital nomad who wants to meet people from all over the world. I love reading, mostly fiction, and writing some poetry as well (only in Spanish).

I support any kind of art: music, theatre, literature, visual and audiovisual arts, so if anyone wants to go to a cultural centre, count me in!

I love English and Portuguese and I'm learning French, so I don't mind people contacting me to speak any of those languages, or simply to talk about life in general.

I'm very keen on traveling, meeting people, knowing different cultures and discovering places I haven't visited before, let places go through me.

I'm very interested in education and in alternative kinds of education (travelling is one of them), and I'm as much vegetarian as I can be while I'm traveling (I just eat fish when I have no other choice).


Nací en São Paulo (Brasil) pero he vivivo en Quilmes (muy cerquita de Buenos Aires) toda mi vida. Soy nómade digital y me interesa conocer gente de todas partes del mundo.

Me encanta leer, en especial ficción, y escribir poesía también. Soy cinéfila, así que si alguien quiere ver una película, que cuente conmigo. También me gusta mucho el teatro y la música.

Me interesan mucho los idiomas, especialmente el inglés y el portugués, así que si quieren hablar conmigo alguno de estos idiomas me pueden contactar también, o simplemente para hablar sobre la vida.

Me encanta descubrir diferentes culturas y lugares que antes no conocía, dejar que los lugares me atraviesen.

Ahora estamos viajando con mi novio, Mariano, como nómades digitales recorriendo Sudamérica. Ya recorrimos Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Uruguay, Perú, Ecuador, Colombia, la Amazonía brasileña, Guyana, Surinam, y ahora sólo falta regresar por Brasil y volver a casa en sólo un mes (diciembre 2017).

Me interesa mucho la educación y las formas alternativas de educación (como por ejemplo viajar), y soy lo más vegetariana que puedo ser viajando (si no queda otra, como pescado). También me gustaría saber más sobre la permacultura y las formas de preservación del medio ambiente.

Tenemos todas nuestras aventuras en nuestro blog de viajes:

¡Espero que me contacten!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Helping travelers, hosting and surfing, going for a mate, learning and teaching.


Ayudando a viajeros, hospedando y hospedándome, reuniéndome a tomar café o mate, aprendiendo y enseñando.


I've hosted a lot of people and surfed over 60 sofás. All good experiences!

I've been going to meetings very actively since 2011, and I've organised myself some in my city Quilmes, and in Buenos Aires as well.

I've shown my city to many people, and done individual language exchanges too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The hospitality that I can receive without asking it, how very poor people can give you anything they have, the fact that I can travel with very little money and be still alive

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd like to practise English or Portuguese and learn Chinese and French, and I could teach Spanish in return. I could also teach Argentinean cards games, more specifically truco.
