About Me


To be more active in the couchsurfing community.


My name is Rosanna Islas. I am 32 years old and I have had a fascination with cultures ever since I was that confused undergraduate student 10 years ago.
I also love my own culture and roots. My family is from Argentina and I fully embrace where we come from and my heritage. Argentina is a part of me, and my soul. I am a spicy latina, and I am a very social person.

I currently live in Samsun, Turkey where I am teaching English at the university. I never saw myself in Turkey, to live, but it has turned out to be a great experience. I might stay another year, before I venture off again into the world.

Those who know me, know I love life in all of it's entirety. I love my family, friends, and of course the beautiful world God has provided us.


Life is beautiful, so let's enjoy NOW. I also believe that if you think you have it bad, it can be a lot worse. Embrace the beauty life has to offer, and let us always be thankful that God has created something so magnificent and grand, and we are able to enjoy this majestic place.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I am not wandering the globe, I try to host. I am unable to host for the next 2015-2016 year. I'm sorry!


Real world issues, cultures past and present, dancing--especially latin dance, foreign cinema, family, friends, TRAVELING IS MY PASSION, bike riding, hiking and the great outdoors.
