About Me

I am very comunicative and open, relaxed person. There is nothing we can´t talk about and if something is on your mind i would rather you speak out, i ´ll do the same trying to be polite and respectfull.
I appreciate a good sense of humor, specially on delicate issues :)

I m into bikes <3 any time i get to a new place i manage to get a bike between my legs. And if im hosting i usually offer one of mine. So if you are hosting me, i will surely ask for instructions on how to get one ;P

I am used to sharing places, such as my home , i normally choose to live with friends in a sort of communal house, having conversations, cooking, checking on each others daily life and stuff like that.

I have no tolerance for homophobia, racism and male chauvinism. I am attracted to open minded fun and positive people. I am a feminist, and also vegetarian (just saying this in case you are into cooking vegetarian dishes , i dont mind what other people´s dietary choices are).

I also enjoy soccer, bike-polo, riding bikes (said that already). hiking and listening other travellers stories, dancing -a lot-, having mate in the morning.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I usually exchange hosting but offline, friends of my friends and so on. Now im in Europe, and I will travell a bit. Couchsuf has been recommended soo many times by friends, and now im europe i thought to give it a try. I suppose the main attraction is to stay at a local´s house, see the real thing , specially if you travel alone and on low budget.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Doing volunteer research on water quality in marginal neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires surroundings, where there is no access to safe drinkable water, with possitive outcomes. Also protesting and blocking the entrance of a Barrick Gold mine project in los Andes for three days along with other environmental activists. Outcome? well....
