About Me


Be bad, and have loads of fun while doing so. Oh! and helping others get in touch with their inner child and also become bad asses.


I'm a friendly, slightly whacky Colombian. Can seem shy at first in new situations or with new people but will become quite comfortable soon enough. Pretty easy going. Optimistic and positive. LOVE animals of all sorts (have several of my own). Have an inner child that is 10 times bigger then my outer adult. Eager for new experiences of many sorts.


1. Do unto other as … ( you know the rest)
2. What goes around, comes around.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


New to this


Currently trying to find myself. Feel I have lived in fear my whole life and am looking forward to new experiences, new people and new places.
Of things I enjoy….anything that involves being creative and using my hands. I can renovate your apartment and decorate it amazingly to knit you a sweater (and yes I have done both). I enjoy both books and movies, and just engaging in interesting and intelligent conversations about anything. I love to learn new things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

La Cueva del Indio somewhere around Barichara. Its this awesome cave tht hosts bats and there is this big drop you have to jump into and fall into this really icy pond. Amazing experience.

When i was a teenager I went to France on an exchange program. It was an amazing experience to live life like the locals. I hate being or acting like a tourist.
