About Me

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've had great couchsurfing experiences! In the past, I have mostly used couchsurfing to find out about events happening in different cities I travelled to. It's a great networking site because I got to meet such great people throughout my trips.

Interests

-I love the arts, especially music and dance. I like to sit and spend a few hours looking for cool quirky songs. I really enjoy small concert venues where the music experience is intimate. A couple of weeks ago I was lucky to walk into a really sweet little bar which some friends and hear some beautiful flamenco guitar. I really love Brazilian music, smooth bossa nova and energetic samba!

-Another big interest of mine is languages. I am working on my Spanish and Portuguese. I love phonetics in general, like to hear and learn different languages.

-I love a good dance- freestyling it or tangoing :)

Music, Movies & Books

MUSIC:
-Adam Green (more for his attitude than his music- he is so carefree and lazy.. its so funny)
-Tame Impala
-Novos Baianos (brazilian psycheadelic-samba band)
-Dirty Projectors
-Departmenf of Eagles (their music is so eerie and thoughtful. I really feel good when I listen to their stuff)

BOOKS:
- Stolen Continents (conquest and resistance in the Americas) by Ronald Wright.
-Les enfants terribles de Jean Cocteau
-Lullabies for little criminals by Heather O'Neill
-The Great Gatsby
