About Me


Take me somewhere the tourists never see


Life begins outside of your comfort zone. I'm ready to dive in head first.

Soy una persona muy tranquila. Me encanta pasear y explorar zonas pocas vistas por extranjeros. Disfruto estando en un sitio sin musica puesta, sin hablar, y solo observando. Es fascinante la historia que el lugar te cuenta si solo escuchas.Me alegran las pequenas detalles...un gato durmiendo al sol, una pequena pancarta indicando el antinguo esplendor de un edificio de lujo ya descuidado y olvidado...Otro amor mio es la comida. Y DIOS, cuanto me gustan los sabores suaves de la comida mediterranea! Es cien porciento diferente de que estaba acostumbrada comer en mi pais.


It's all in the details.

The more I see, the less I know.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm that person that helps you find your way when you're lost on the metro and I'm no expert, but I'll tell you what I've learned since I got here.


When I moved to Barcelona I couchsurfed with someone until I could find an apartment. He became a really amazing friend, and since then couchsurfing has changed my life by putting me in contact with extraordinary, bright-eyed people who are so full of life and want to join you for part of the ride. There's no going back haha.


Photography, anything outdoors (hiking, sports, biking, walking on the beach. . .), spending time with people who are equally passionate about living and sharing life.

I'm also an amateur diver and love both Freediving (breath hold diving) and Scuba.

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't watch a lot of movies, but I LOVE music. Recipe for the perfect afternoon: good company, good tunes, and sunshine(and maybe some beers hahaha).

I'm beginning to read a lot more since I find that I have a lot of free time here in BCN. I just finished La Isla Bajo el Mar por Isabel Allende which I really enjoyed.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rode a burro through a remote Mexican fishing village

Getting stuck in Chicago for 4 hours, in the middle of the night, with no coat (it was -20 degrees!).

Picnic lunch and beers con una buena amiga en Cabo de Gata, Espana.

Waking up to the roaring sound of the jungle in Costa Rica.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am eager to learn and I dont know everything, so tell me about what you know, what you are passionate about...I will do the same.

Some things that really interest me are history, learning more languages (especially French and German), architecture/design, and cooking.
