Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Paloma’s full profile.
To travel as much as I can and to eat as much as my doctor says I can.
I am a Peruvian backpacker that wants to know as many places time allows me and know as many people as I can (stories fascinate me, especially love stories). I can adapt, I think is the key of learning. I like to help around and talk a lot: Everything you learn from every person you meet can and will shape you, that is why I love to keep my mind wide open. I am also a dog lover, a dessert lover and a baking lover. I always look forward to knowing new philosophies and points of view.
The world is a playground. You know that when you are a kid, but somewhere along the way everyone forgets it. My life mission is to never forget that. Plus the cliche one: what goes around comes around: treat people how you want to be treated. So be careful what you do. And Carpe Diem: live life now.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have couch surfed for half a year in Europe: it was amazing! Also, I hosted one when I was living in Spain and in Lima.
I have couch surfed all my way through central Europe, and let me tell you: you meet the most amazing people ever.
Couchsurfing is just proof that kindness is still alive in this world
Getting to know historic places, natural locations and try as many different foods I can. Travelling is one of the ways to know that there is a God after all. I am a diagnosed film-addict: I love watching trailers and making a list of all the movies I have to watch, also reading de trivia and researching about the film. I love acting too, I am studying drama in different workshops and I love going to the theater to watch plays. About music, I'm eclectic, although I have to say not many people know the bands I listen to. I'm very keen on learning how to cook too, not very good at it but trying to :)
Music, Movies, and Books
Every West Anderson and Greta Gerwig movie for a everyday conversation, a Tarantino movie if you want to get graphic, a Terrence Malick movie if you want to get philosophical, and mention any Indie movie if you want to go deep.
Books: by far my favorite book is "Kafka by the river" by Murakami . Some of Mario Vargas Llosa ("Travesuras de una niña mala" "Quien mató a Palomino Molero") and all of the book written by Jorge Eslava (because of him I learn to love reading at the age of 8) "Florentino"
Music...#sigh..that is a hard one, I am just eclectic with this area: Coldplay, American Authors, Aquilo, Bastille, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Best Coast, Birdy, Calle 13, Capital Cities, Cazzette, Charlie Winston , Crystal Fighters, Daft Punk, Death Cab fo Cutie, The Drums, Family of the year, Forty Food Echo, Glyphs, Hellogoodbye, Icona Pop, Iron and Wine, Jack Johnson, the Killers, Kings of Leon, Lord Huron, the Lumineers, MGMT, Passion Pit...endless jajajaj
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I have climb to Macchu Piccu, travel in the Sahara by camel, went away with my best friend to the beaches of Ica, ride my 1972 volkswagen beatle up a hill, spend every birthday with my family and drank a whole bottle of Pisco and didn't black out, Saved a drunk person in Budapest, danced to a Silent party in Poland until 8 am and drove in the back of a scooter in Athens. Also, beeing with my boyfriend for 2 years now and going strong :)... and adopting 2 puppies.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach how to make some peruvian dishes, about different types o cinema, how to edit videos, how to eat as the world is ending and how to properly wash your undewear. I would like to learn different customs, differente life storys. I like to share knowledge, secrets and ways of thinking, but above all, experience and time.
What I Can Share with Hosts
