About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find my mission, my place on earth.

ABOUT ME

Hi! I'm Ana Mar, and I'm from Llançà in the Costa Brava. I usually still spend summer there, but I currently live in Barcelona.

I'm studying Comunicación Audiovisual. That means I know a bit about photography, cinema and television. I'm enjoying my degree a lot, and I think it's helping me to grow as a person!

People say I'm a cheerful and funny girl! I'm easy-going, but sometimes get too thoughful (don't you?), I like to share those moments with someone who wants to get thoughtful as well :)

I love to meet new people and also I love listening stories about places that are unknown to me.

PHILOSOPHY

Don't know how to describe that... I guess I just try to enjoy life, try not to worry too much and make people happier.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I first heard about couchsurfing while I was doing an english course in my country, back then I was only 16 and I waited eagerly until I was eighteen, so that I could have my own appartment. I've always been lucky to have such great flatmates, they have always loved to participate in this great couchsurfing experience: as I cannot travel, I'll be bringing other cultures home!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Me, Josep and Ariadna stayed in Loïc's flat in Paris! Thanks for everything Loïc, you've been such a welcoming guy! That has been my only guest experience so far, most of my experience is as a host :)

I hosted Michael and Mila and her boyfriend (Alexey I think?)

Also hosted Yuka, with whom I could share a lot of freak stuff about Japan! :)

We also hosted Caio and Felipe, a pair of lively nice brazilian guys :)

There's also Colette from the USA, she's been the most lovely cheerful couchsurfer we've ever had ♥

And well, we hosted some other people, but maybe it's better if you read the reviews :D

Interests

I love singing, and I'm learning how to play guitar, but I can't really find time nor someone to teach me! :( No specific style, I usually get through the whole spectrum of genres.

As a cinema student, I love movies, series and all kinds of short movies (in fact, I filmed a couple of them). I can't really say I'm an expert, but I try to learn as much as I can. I'm not always in the mood for cinema, I don't like to watch a good movie if I'm tired or moody, I like to watch them and after that, think, talk about them. I don't like being treated as a stupid espectator.

I'm fond of Japan and I love the country and its culture, so if you are japanese and I find you interesting, you have extra points to be my guest!

I love people who make me see new and strange perspectives of things.

Music, Movies & Books

My favourite movie EVER it's Le fabuleux destin d'Amelie Poulain. It's got something special that I can't explain... I would never get tired of that film! Recently watched "Melancholia" by Lars Von Trier.. it left me very touched and thinking about hypocresy and the defects of human kind.

About music... I like pretty much anything. I will probably like everything you let me listen, but be aware of the fact that house music bores me too much. I can listen it for a while, but after that I get tired of the same thing again and again and again....

Some of my favourite singers/bands/composers are spanish/catalan indie bands. Lately I've been listening to Russian Red, Lori Meyers, Love of lesbian, Manel... as for international I like The Beatles, Velvet Underground, Devendra Banhart, Lykke Li, Yann Tiersen, Lily Allen, Of monsters and men...

I read quite a lot of Murakami's books, and lately I'm reading loads of short tales from Pere Calders, Quim Monzó, Edgar Allan Poe... quite suitable for the time I spend in the metro :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Celebrate new year's eve the 5th of June with my friends!

Dress up as a dead child for Halloween and scare the crap out of everyone in the train station!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd love to learn lots of languages. As we say in spanish "El saber no ocupa lugar" (there's always some space left in your brain for learning)

As for teaching, I can teach you some spanish or catalan, and I also use to cook Tandoori Chicken very often ;) It's an easy and delicious indian recipe ;)

I can talk to you about typical catalan traditions, any curiosity you have about Catalonia (did you know most catalans don't consider themselves spanish?).

I will like good conversations about cinema, music, news, politics, pretty much anything. Everything's good as long as it's good.
