About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Visit as many places and meet as many people as I can

ABOUT ME

I'm a small, energetic, passionate young woman who never stops moving and never sits still. In my world the most significant moments and experiences come from social interaction, and thus I try to meet as many people as I can.

PHILOSOPHY

Always say 'yes'

but to safe offers.

Careful spontaneity.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

So far just travelling- I have yet to live in a situation where I can host.
But hey, if you're in the same city as I am lets check it out together- I have a knack for finding cool spots in cities I've been in for a day, and then remembering how to find them again.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Have surfed a lot around Europe, in Mexico and the DR, Thailand, and was a big part of the surfing community in Beijing. Hope to be able to host soon.

Interests

Language- so far Italian, French, Spanish, Chinese, Portuguese, in order of aptitude. I love languages and have a goal of being highly proficient in 5 of them within two years' time.
Cooking and food of all types from everywhere- I am a firm believer that eating is one of the most profound and blissful experiences there is in this life.
Classic/art cinema- cinema is an art form, and many people don't appreciate it as such.
Literature, with a penchant for magical realism.
Music, of all kinds. I make my own contribution by singing opera and playing the violin. For a while I wanted to be an opera singer professionally.. and I still fantasize about it.
Dancing, in particular Argentine Tango, Salsa, Swing (West Coast Swing, East Coast Swing, Lindy), Contra dancing, etc.

Music, Movies & Books

Favorite directors include: Tati, Renoir, Antonioni, Bergman, Fellini, Cassavetes, Sam Fuller, King Vidor, Tsai Ming Liang, Ozu

All kinds of music. I love classical, ambient, tango, rock, pop, etc etc.

Favorite authors recently include Hemingway, E.M. Forster, Marquez, Rainer Maria Rilke, Salinger, Calvino

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Made a foreign country my own; felt truly at home in a language and place where I did not grow up. Feeling bicultural.

Teach, Learn, Share

Language is my great love, I would love to practice the ones I have studied and be introduced to those I haven't.

Cooking and food, recipes, dinners together. Food food food!!!

Conversation, both deep and superficial.

Life philosophy, ideals, perspectives, ideas.

The secrets of your city- where do the locals go?

Countries I've Visited

Argentina, Austria, Belgium, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United States
