About Me

Update 2020: My husband recently moved to Boston as he is a doctor at Boston Medical Center, I'll be going back and forth between Boston and Guatemala for a couple of months and move for a few years to Boston once all paperwork is finished.

Update 2016: I moved back to Guatemala City now. No longer in Umeå!

Sorry if I am not able to reply to your message, I will try to reply all of them :) but my work schedule leaves me little time for CSing these days but if I can squeeze you in, I will be happy to show you around or even host you

CURRENT MISSION

Get to know Boston and meet locals and if things get better with COVID host some people

ABOUT ME

I'm a Master Student moving around Europe (Erasmus), I love traveling and the best of traveling is getting to now different cultures and ways of seeing the world! I love having interesting conversations, I love treasuring good moments and meeting new people.

I am very determined and love going outdoors (hiking, walking in the nature, rivers) but also love the city life and having fun in the city! I like winter but I love summers!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love CS! It allows you to actually see the "real" cities and places. Not just a tour, not just a photo in front of a location, it allows you to get to know the real people that live in the place, hear their stories and see how normal life is. I love it!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Amazing things for me are the moments I spend with my family or friends and they're captured in my mind like a photography that makes me smile just by the mere thought of it.

It's hard for me to pick 2 or 3, I have so many many great memories and enjoy my life so much!

1. Road trip with some friends through Guatemala and Central America

2. Holidays with the family

3. Lunch next to an abandoned castle in an almost deserted island with my friends in the Scottish Highlands with an amazing view from the cliffs

4. Many many other trips!!
