Hello, my name is María Dolores (or Malola). :)
Vegetarian atheist teetotaler book lover introverted (but not shy) light hippie with open mind and heart and who loves trekking, language learning and memes. Surely we can find lots to talk about.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
"A stranger is a friend you haven't met yet." -Andy Dick.
"Stranger, if you passing meet me and desire to speak to me, why should you not speak to me? And why should I not speak to you?" -Walt Whitman.
"Don’t neglect to open up your homes to guests, because by doing this some have been hosts to angels without knowing it." -Hebrews 13:2, Common English Bible (CEB).
「旅人をねんごろにせよ」-Pika Pika Ojisan. (Don't forget to be kind to strangers.)
"Give me your tired, your poor, /Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, /The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. /Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: /I lift my lamp beside the golden door.” -Emma Lazarus. (A bit too much but you get the point.)
"Hiketeia is ritual. Hiketeia is law. It is never to be ignored. (...) Refusal... denial is unthinkable. It is not simply hospitality. It is more than opening our door to another." -Greg Rucka.
BTW, I looooove hitch-hiking and wild camping, so if you come all smelly and disgusting ( :v ), it's OK. We still love you. (But, you still have to bathe. Seriously. The first thing you must do is to desinfect yourself.)
- animal welfare
- cultural studies
- wild camping
- cultural exchange
- queer theory
- criminal law
Music, Movies, and Books
Well, I'd love you to recommend me your favorite movies, books, and music.
Of films, whatever has Meryl Streep. She's the closest there is to a goddess.
Of books, non-fiction, classic literature.
Of music... P!nk, Alejandro Sanz, Do As Infinity.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
-I hitch-hiked by myself in Japan (in Tohoku and Kyushu) and through France and Germany.
-I lived in the Amazonia in a refuge for animals called AmaZOOnico doing volunteer work and a monkey almost bit off my finger. :'v I can't use that finger for fingerprint readers.
-I did Santiago's Way in Spain (115 km of pure fun... XD ).
-I do (present tense) the best tacos ever. ;) D-I-V-I-N-E.
Teach, Learn, Share
We could share tips on how to travel, hitch-hike, backpack or trek.
Or help each other improve our respective languages. Regarding this... mi perfil está en inglés, pues, porque por defecto éste se vuelve la 'lingua franca', pero mi idioma nativo es español.
De même, mon français est très basique, mais j'apprécierais si nous pouvions pratiquer un peu.
