About Me

Spanish traveler, passionate about discovering the world together with my husband. I studied journalism and I work as a communication&events expert in Madrid. I love spending time with my family and friends, photography and meeting new people.
From the time I was a child, travel formed me as much as my formal education. In order to appreciate cultures of another place, one needs to go there, know the people and understand the culture of that country.
Travel is not a hobby, is my way of life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

As the perfect way to get into the culture of a country, a city... meeting its people and their way of life.
