About Me

I am a natural woman not hiding my grey hair and speaking freely on many topics when I decide to do so.

I work as a communication coach as since very young I have been drawn to the topic of how people can understand each other better. I like observing human behavior and relational dynamics throughout history and across cultures and groups. I am attracted to learning and analyzing language and speak various languages including Esperanto.

I like sharing, sincerity, equality, non-competitiveness, generosity, humanism, respect and naturalness. I am into philosophy, personal growth and spirituality. I resonate with anarchism as a philosophy for life and society. I am drawn to music and have played several instruments and my current passion is learning the classical guitar. I like many music styles e.g. spiritual Indian, most African styles and fusions, middle eastern, some jazz, folk, country, classical guitar pieces and flamenco, and generally anything deep, relaxing or uplifting.

I like hanging out in nature, having easy going conversations in which everyone can freely express themselves and occasionally traveling.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To discover and connect with people, build harmonious human connections, enjoy moments together and learn with and from one another.


Relax! Nothing is under control. I like the Daoist perspective of life of letting go and being reminded you are one with everything .

Music, Movies, and Books

I read every day, mostly psychology, history, spirituality, social justice, colonialisms, art.

A few books off the top of my mind are The Secret Life of Salvador Dali, Colonization of Time, Flow, No Contest by Alfie Kohn, Finite and Infinite games, most by Erich Fromm and many more...

I can recommend to you many other good books as we naturally converse and based on your interests.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I value non-competition and try to be non-competitive. I have lived in several countries, I have traveled around a bit and speak 7 languages but generally I do not consider myself exceptional and I do not often do amazing things. I am a piece of the universe, just like you, that is as special as it gets.

Teach, Learn, Share

We can talk about life, the world, languages, culture, humanness, politics, history etc. I can tell you about my recent passion - Esperanto and that wonderful community

What I Can Share with Hosts

Genuine, natural and comfortable human interaction. Sharing life perspectives, having a good time and fun together, creating common experiences and memories. Should be spontaneous and depends much on the situation and companions.
