About Me




I am a curious person, talkative and usually with a smile on my face. I love getting to know people, discovering new places and learning.

I'm from Spain, but started working in Munich in February :)


I'll write a quote I really like.

"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love meeting new people :) It's always so enriching! I've hosted people I met through couch surfing and I have also surfed sometimes!


I've been using Couch Surfing to meet people while travelling and also in my own city :) I've been hosted several times and now that I live in Munich I also host every now and then.


I love music, reading, cinema, photography, stories, the sea, travelling, a good conversation, being in a natural environment, teaching little children, and so many other things!

Music, Movies, and Books

I love a spanish film director: Isabel Coixet, her films really touch me deep inside. My favourite film is 'La vida secreta de las palabras'. I also like films that make you think.

I couldn't live without music. The swell season, Damien Rice, Lisa Hannigan, Zahara, Vaivencida, Ivan Ferreiro, Katie Melua, Facto delafé y las flores azules,etc.

Reading is one of the things that most delights me. Novels, stories which have something to say and transmit emotions.
I love the feeling of being absorved in a story, forgetting about the world arround me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Not so amazing, but it Connemara (Ireland), we went on an excursion to an Island and when we came back the tide had risen so we got completely soaked. Cold feet.

Temazcal at a friend's house. It's a sort of Mexican sauna. Felt so relaxed and happy :D

Teach, Learn, Share

What is life? For me it's like a path we walk through. And during the way we should learn as much as possible. If we really want to know where truth is, we should be open to what other people and life itself will teach us. Everyone is special in a different way, that's why we can always learn :)
But also very important to learn to know yourself. I think we should all try to meditate every now and then.
