I am, and always will be the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes. The dreamer of improbable dreams.
Never allow anyone to take the hopes from your heart, the dreams from your mind or the goodness from your soul.
Si nada nos salva de la muerte, al menos que el amor nos salve de la vida.
I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.
At the end of the day, all we have is who we are.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I really like meeting people from around the world, learning about their language and culture. I'm studying Spanish, English and Portuguese languages, I'm taking Indonesian dance classes and I love latin dances. I can't imagine myself without traveling and learning new things about what's happening in the world. I feel like couchsurfing is like a window to all those places and people and I'm so glad something like this exists. It's all about that coffee (or beer) you have with a person you didn't even know existed 2 hours ago, but now you feel like is your friend, while watching the sunset in a different part of the world, or just walking around the city you never believed you would travel to and having a long conversation while asking yourself if this really is your life and you can't even describe how happy you are.
I like winter. Snow. I like Serbian rock n roll. Coffee with banana taste. I like reading books. Sea. Swimming. Running. I like dark. Nail polishes in every single color. Fairy lights. The smell of violet and lilac. Languages. I like writing songs. Adventures. Hiking. To travel. New people. Dancing incessantly. Summer rain. Roofs. Bubble wrap! Apple pie with cinnamon. Hammocks. Nature. Sunsets. The sound of waves. Cocktails. Procrastination. Eating junk food while watching movies. Sunrises. To joke. Psychology. No math, please. I like being alone, the same thing I hate the most. I like jazz. Photography. Spicy food. Sunflowers. Trains. To be an optimist. Originality. Details. World globes. Giving gifts. I like sleeping. Planning. Being creative. Vegan and vegetarian food. Mugs. Hot chocolate with rum. The thing I love about myself is that I always find a way to make my dreams come true. But before I do I fuck it up a few times. I guess that's the only way I could learn. I like the sound of piano and saxophone. Raspberries! Swings. Bracelets. Animals. Being sarcastic. Christmas decorations. I like old people's stories. I also love cooking. Laughing as much as possible.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I was camping on the beach in Spain, falling asleep and waking up to the sound of waves, and was able to see the sunset every evening and saw the most beautiful orange moon in my life
I had a fear of traveling by airplane, and then I went by myself 3 times on one trip
For the first time, I traveled solo to Spain for more than a month and I had the time of my life
I went wild camping at the top of the mountain near Barcelona, seeing one of the best views and saw a fricking boar while coming down, I was scared as hell, and that day I thought my time had come
Met so many nice people that I'll never forget! For example, I asked one guy for the direction of a hostel in Barcelona, and he walked with me for 10 minutes carrying my bag all the way to the hostel, a guy who let me stay by myself in his apartment in Madrid without even meeting beforehand, then the guy who saved my ass from the boar, the guy who taught me the best Spanish curse words. I can keep going!
I hitchhiked for the first time and had the best time ever. I was talking to the driver about Don Quixote and then he gave me a little statue of Don Quixote, then when I was in the giftshop, I was talking with the worker and told him about it and he gave me a pendant of Cervantes and then I went to a bookstore to buy some books and the guy gave me 2 books because he found out I'm studying Spanish. It just shows how much people gain by giving. And it's not about the stuff I got, it's about the goodness of the people.
Spent the night in a sleeping bag while having the most beautiful view of Toledo and saw so many shooting stars that I ran out of wishes :)
I went on a road trip to Asturias with the best host ever, pretty amazing if you ask me :)
I learned that you can't plan everything and having all my plans change, I became more open to whatever is coming and finally felt the freedom of not knowing what's gonna happen next and I fricking love it
