About Me

CURRENT MISSION

make my path

ABOUT ME

well, i'm a pretty relaxed person who likes to take things as they come. i enjoy the company of others- i like learning and listening to what you have to say. i'm open to new avenues of exploration, whether they be cultural, emotional, spiritual.

i enjoy reading, thinking, sometimes writing. i enjoy the process of cooking, from the preparation stages-listening to music, having a dance- to the sitting down with friends to eating and feeling full and happy! i enjoy the city life, but i also love nature. i love sunshine, smiles, laughs, calmness, music, crafts, philosophy...

PHILOSOPHY

life for me is a continuous process of learning. there's so much diversity in the world, so much to be explored, shared, experienced, understood. travelling is the most interesting, spontaneous and enriching form of learning in my experience, and that is why i love it. we take so much for granted, and although having fun is the the main premise of my life philosophy, i like to be and try to be, always aware of what i'm experiencing.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

host and be hosted!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

i experienced great hospitality, kindness and enthusiasm whilst surfing in europe and all over south america. scrambled up mountains, swam in the sea, danced in the streets, laughed lots, ate excellent homemade local food, and slept incredibly well!

Interests

digeridoo, handicrafts, music, literature, culture drinking a mate in the park with friends and a guitar; learning about plants, growing things and foraging! taking time with people to talk, cook and eat, exchange music, stories, knowledge, whatever.. exploring- i love going for big walks, by myself or with someone, with no specific direction, just walk and see what i find!

Music, Movies & Books

milan kundera, the book of tea, brion gyson, electric kool-aid acid test, murikami, louis macneice, yeats, siddartha, roberto juarroz

jazz, tropicalia, bossa nova, but also some indie, folk, ambient, and electronic music, turntablism, the hypnotic rythms of tinariwen, and the colourful music of africa.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

hitching a boat from Gran Canaria to Brazil! i saw and exprienced many amazing things during that time, from flying fish, to swimming with wild dolphins, showering in the rain of a storm, and approaching land again after 38 days....

Teach, Learn, Share

i can teach you some nice,relaxing,easy yoga-i need to practice while i`m on the move, so lets find a park and go! i know a little thai massage i would like to share and learn macrame and crochet i would like to learn about your culture, your food, your history, you as an individual. and anything else you can teach me- i want to learn languages, origami, and how to make things from nothing.
