About Me

Every so many years I need to go traveling and do something educational! I end up doing volunteer work most of the time. My last volunteer job was in healthcare in Guatemala and Peru for 15 months. Currently work for 2 NGO's who offer care for persons with multiple disabilities.
Also write as needed for the media! Provide workshops on health care topics and like to do my health education services.
And finally.......... I do participate in art exhibitions/art markets, mostly with photography but in 2017 I had crafts as well for the primera vez.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because it makes life easier, isn't it? It saves money as well and interesting to meet up with new people and cultures.


Like to travel especially to Asia!
Interest in visual art and dance especially ballet (classic). For some years been doing photography on an amateur level as well.
Also like to write, mostly traveling stories are being placed in the local newspaper in my country. But I do like to express my concern when it comes to health care issues or the environment.............
I also participate in running events such as the 10k and every once in a while a marathon! Do like relay triathlons.
Have been doing open water events as well, 10k and 18k! Yes, age doesn't really matter, isn't it? Claro!
