Join Couchsurfing to see Siddhi Camila’s full profile. It’s free!
To travel as much as possible while obtaining my PhD!
I'm Siddhi, which is the diminutive of Siddhartha. I've been to every continent except Antarctica. I try to go somewhere new and different every month and explore more new countries. I love learning about new cultures and meeting people from different places.
I spent a lot time travelling as a child with my parents. Now, I'm trying to get back to all those places and renew those memories with adult versions. I'm now a PhD student at MIT-Portugal but I'm trying not to let that stop me from travelling and having great adventures!
I love concerts and I try to go as many music festivals as I can each year. If music, science, and travelling can be combined, I'm pretty much in my version of heaven.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm happy to visit couchsurfers in other countries and have couchsurfers stay with me! I'm pretty busy with work these days but I'm always happy to host independent travellers and/or meet with people and show them around!
So far, couchsurfing has been pretty great! I've loved the people I've met--both those who have come to stay and those who I've stayed with!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One of my favourite places in the world is Morocco. I can't even describe the amazing amount of things my friends and I did there in three days. We rode camels through a palm desert, got lost in the souk, climbed a mountain and jumped in a waterfall at the very top... it was all just so incredible!
I try to have equally incredible experiences in every other new country I go to! This year, I've been in Andorra, Japan, and India, and will end the year in South Africa!
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm really enthusiastic about learning about beer and wine production lately. I'm also keen to learn to DJ! If you have something scientific that you want to discuss or debate, I'm your girl. I'm a long term expat in the UK/Spain, so pretty knowledgeable about their politics, as well.
If you're interested in staying with me, be sure to read the section on 'my home' before you write me a message :)
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can help you with your English or Spanish, teach you how to cook something interesting (truffle risotto, anyone?), or maybe we could compose some music together!
Countries I’ve Lived In
