About Me

I'm from Galicia, Spain, and after living in Madrid for some years I'm now in Cuenca where I decided to continue my studies in Fine Arts. Before I was cabin crew, I visited many countries around the world but I gave up working for doing what I love :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I started being a traveler Cs and I´m so grateful to the kind people that hosted me with a lot of love and hospitality. So it´s important for me to keep the circle that makes the people trust the others, and scape from the capitalism that converts the cities in inhuman places. Also, I have the need of meeting diverse and amazing people when I travel, I am constantly looking for new recommendations, suggestions and opinions for any interest.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I don't have a planned project of life, everything changes for me constantly. This is so normal for me, but awesome (or disturbing) for many people

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm interested in everything if I can learn, help, enjoy or improve something.
Life is soup, don't be a fork :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Many things! Conversations about everything. My best meal: lentils hummus, it's so easy but I always do it different and always is the best. A reiki session, It has a lot of benefits, even if you don't believe it. An arty activity, with painting, music or whatever. I love proposals and improvisation
