About Me


Discover cool places, cool people and enjoy life!! Be happy!! Share the magic!!


I was born 4 decades ago and counting, I am the first of 4 kids. I have one sister and two brothers. I have lived in Puebla and Mexico City. I have a very loving boyfriend, but I have never been married and I have no kids. I love music (I just can't work without it!) and taking pictures of everything I like... people, dogs, heavy machinery, graffiti... you name it! I am working extra hard to pay for my new flat. I am so proud I was able to buy it and set it up as my house!


I believe in respect others, by respecting yourself first. I believe in honesty, friendship, open minds, open talks, open hearty laughter. I believe in expressing your emotions, not being afraid of them. I believe we came to this earth to be happy, no matter how hard our life has been, we need to learn how to BE and FEEL happy. Adding to all this, I also believe in respecting animals and treating them with dignity and care...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have enjoyed a lot being a host and receiving couch surfers!! Eventually, I plan to do some couch surfing myself. I love learning from other cultures and ways of living. When I was a teenager I had a lot of pen pals (yes, that long ago, when we actually used paper and pen to communicate) and enjoyed learning from my friends in far away places.


Well, yes, I have "crashed" somebody elses couch, mostly friends and friends of friends. It has been positive and I have always been grateful to all those who were my hosts. I stayed in Paris, London, Milan, Lahti and Kuopio (in Finland) and enjoyed every bit. I have also hosted friends from my own country in my couch (a very comfortable fouton!).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have done snorkeling at the beautiful mexican Caribbean, being brushed by hundreds of colorful fishes. I have felt the power of water at the Iguazu and at the Niagara Falls. I have enjoyed the undescribable beauty of the Chilean Patagonia at Torres del Paine. I have enjoyed a great espresso at Paris and a wonderful "gelato" (ice cream) at Milan. OH! And admired the magnificent beauty of Machu Picchu in a sunny, beautiful day!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach how to make wonderful banana bread and brownies. Also how to cook "huevos a la mexicana", super yummy! I can teach you a few words of Spanish and how to negotiate at a local market.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook a yummy meal, a fun conversation and have a session of improv theater!
