ABOUT US

Hello friends!

We are Melody and Juan Manuel, a couple from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Since we met in Argentina long time ago, we knew that the following years we wanted to be together and travelling...and we cannot be that lucky because thats what we are doing now :). We didn't know how to live travelling, we just started one day and the opportunities just came to us after a lot of work and a lot of passion. Now we are living a beautiful life full of travels.

I (Melody) started to travel 6 years ago. My first destination was New Zealand, my first love, love at first sight. I went there for one year holding the Working Holiday visa. One year later I was heading to Australia for one more year holding the same visa. Metting geat prople on the road and many stories to tell.
After Australia I went for a trip to South Asia and Japan.
When I went back to Argentina after my trip, Juan was just there listening to all my stories and he also wishing to travel.

Since we started to travel together, we've been living and working in Brazil for 9 months enjoying the amazing beach life everyday. After we went to Ireland for 1 year and a half, Dublin has millions of funny stories to tell. After that we did an amazing trip all around Europe for 4 months, visiting friends that we had met before in other places and enjoying life as easy as it is.

Now we are in Asia, we've been travelling around Thailand for 3 months, after here we are planning and wishing to go to Cambodia, Filipins and more countries. After Asia we are going back to Australia for one more year and then who knows! We are just following the wind!

We are happy persons because we do what we really love, with a lot of passion and energies, wanting to live a good and easy life of travels, full of friendly people who would like to help us in our way. Always in good mood and facing the paths of life.

We love to meet new people all the time, listen their histories, we always learn from them. Every person is a world. We love to have every day a different day.
Love nature, be as free as a bird, flight with them, enjoy breathing, be quiet and relax when is necesary. Love music, all kind of music. We love to read good books, watch good movies and cook delicius food for everyone!

PHILOSOPHY

"Rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness... give me TRUTH."

"There are those who observe things as they are and wonder why. Some people, however, imagine it as never had been and ask why not?"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We really like to do CS because is the only way that we found to meet local people and learn from them, share meals, stories, cultures, laughs and smiles.
We believe that our purpose in this life is to help each other, that hospitality exists, that all the people is nice and friendly, that is what the world and the people show us every single day, just good things.
If it wasn't for all the people that was helping us during our trip, we couldn't have done it. We apreciate so much all the help we recived from people all this years and we hope this never ends.
We are dreamers and we wanna keep dreaming as long as we can.
" The freedom and simple beauty is just too good to pass up "

Interests

We love traveling, fill our soul, the only thing that make us completely happy is to be travelling together.
We love to meet new people all the time, listen their histories, we always learn from them. And keep in touch with those already known. Every person is a world. We love to have every day a different day.
Love nature, be as free as a bird, flight with them, enjoy breathing, be quiet and relax when is necesary. Love music, all kind of music. We love to read good books, watch good movies and cook delicius food for everyone!

..." Y me contó la historia de un muchacho enamorado de una estrella. Adoraba a su estrella junto al mar, tendía sus brazos hacia ella, soñaba con ella y le dirigía todos sus pensamientos. Pero sabí­a o creía saber, que una estrella no podrí­a ser abrazada por un ser humano. Creía que su destino era amar a una estrella sin esperanza; y sobre esta idea construyó todo un poema vital de renuncia y de sufrimiento silencioso y fiel que habría de purificarle y perfeccionarle. Todos sus sueños se concentraban en la estrella. Una noche estaba de nuevo junto al mar, sobre un acantilado, contemplando la estrella y ardiendo de amor hacia ella. En el momento de mayor pasión dió unos pasos hacia adelante y se lanzó al vací­o, a su encuentro. Pero en el instante de tirarse pensó que era imposible y cayó a la playa destrozado. No había sabido amar. Si en el momento de lanzarse hubiera tenido la fuerza de creer firmemente en la realización de su amor, hubiese volado hacia arriba a reunirse con su estrella..."

In English should be something like this...
..." And he told me the story of a boy in love with a star . Adored his star seaside spread their arms towards her, dreamed of her and directed all his thoughts. But he knew or thought he knew , that a star could not be embraced by a human being, believed that his destiny was to love a star without hope, and this idea built around a poem critical of renunciation and silent suffering and faithful that would purify and perfect himself . All his dreams were focused on the star . One night he was back by the sea , on a cliff , watching the star and burning with love for her. At the moment of greatest passion gave a few steps forward and jumped into the void, to meet her. But in that moment he thought it was impossible so he broken down to the beach. He had not known love. If at the time of launch would have had the strength to believe firmly in the realization of his love, had flown up to meet his star ... "
