About Me

I'm relaxed, talkative, curious, open-minded and love a good discussion. I love to travel, eat, and be active. I like learning new languages, cultures, and meeting new people as well. I am a huge fan of ranting about my lousy, good-for-nothing government -- so hear all about it!
Just ended my job, and now I'm back to the travel grind. Going through a bit of a 20's crisis, so let's chat.

My ideal job would be secretary of state or a nomad with salary. My goal is to travel all the continents (Antarctica included) by 2020.

PHILOSOPHY

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

"What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? - it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's been the most amazing experience being taken in by strangers. I've had lovely meals prepared for me and even lovelier conversations. I've shared a ton of laughs with my hosts, and I wish life could be an endless nomadic journey joined by good people with great conversations.

Interests

I love going to concerts and music festivals! Love scuba diving! I like to snowboard (even though I've only done it once), hike, run, be in nature. I also like fashion, pop culture, politics, contemporary musings, reading/debating current events.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I jumped off a 15 meter cliff with one of my best friends, landed in the water in sitting position, and had bruised thighs for a week. It was the most terrifying, exhilarating, and painful experience of my life - and I loved it!

Partied in Madrid the night my favorite football team, Real Madrid, won the Champions League, then I got everything pickpocketed (haha).

Hiking in Patagonia (Argentine side) -- my favorite place on Earth!!
