About Me


discovering myself and travelling with my partner in crime :)


love learning languages, studying, traveling. enjoying good food and friends. My family means the world to me.. My fiancee, sister, parents!! I'm generally a positive, helpful, openminded person. A good friend and listener. Im curious! very hardworking and determined.

I believe in the power of observation, really seeing things and understanding them before I comment on them, or at least I was like that from a young age, always trying to comprehend my surroundings before passing any sort of opinion on them. In that way I'm a little cautious.


like socrates the only thing I know is that I don't know. All I can say is we should all question ourselves and society in order to progress or even just to understand our motives. I believe traveling has and continues to open my eyes.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Interacting with other couchsurfers while traveling has been a real treat, it often allows you to meet thoughtful people who can teach you a thing or two and genuinely engage with the world in such a unique way. Those types of relationships and experiences back in the day would have been so rare to come by, it's so great!
