About Me


To be.


Thinker, feeler, lover, artesan, dancer, music lover, naturist, life-lover...
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. 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.


Never be too shy to make a connection. I think people should learn to communicate in as many ways possible. I look for stuff to enjoy in life, because life is meant to be enjoyed! :
Bpe open and acceptive and things will happen for the best.

Why I’m on 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.


Sorry for having stopped updating this list. I cherish all my hosts and guests, you were all awesome. :D

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
