About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be.

ABOUT ME

Thinker, feeler, lover, laugher, artesan, dancer, music lover, naturist, life-lover, let the energy flow and go with it!Trying to keep balanced, but often going to the edge... I love exploring cultures, people, the world and mostly myself by all means. I love people and all their creative endeavors, and I love nature, and God as a part of myself (and vice versa!)I am direct and straightforward, but polite. Speak your mind out to me please!If I could have one super power, it would be flying. Diving was the closest I got so far.

PHILOSOPHY

Never be too shy to make a connection.I think people should learn to communicate in as many ways possible. Never taking anything for granted, I look at life from an angle, trying it out in different ways, experimenting and taking notes. I look for stuff to enjoy in life, because life is meant to be enjoyed! :DYou are God. God is You. We are all one. If you're ever in doubt, ask the question and you will get the answer! Just be open and acceptive and things will happen for the best.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I organize and participate in CS gatherings, trips, Free Hugs and whatever. =) I love surfing and hosting as much as I can, showing them my country and learning about theirs.

I love to meet people and know the similarities and the differences of our cultures. I'm always in awe about the wonderful opportunities this world gives us.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Flew a hot air baloon in Kenya. Had been charged at by a bull at me at the bull run in Tlacotalpan, Mexico. Scuba-diving in bay islands in Honduras.Stayed up singing all night and then watched the the sun rise. Danced naked in the desert. Ate fresh corn right off the stalk. Lived in this world and can't get enough. :D
