About Me


Happiness and minimalism


Sustainable minimalist, tea enthusiast, creative cook, imaginative writer, avid salsa dancer, vegetarian, poker player, eco-alemana, blogger, barefoot runner, remote worker for Automattic. And if you google for valedeoro, you will find much much more (mostly in Spanish).


Negativity is a waste of time.
When in doubt, do it.
The universe will abide, so be sure you ask for the right thing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted a bunch of people in Barcelona and surfed in many European countries. I love meeting new people and showing them around, so CS is a great way to do just that.


I met some amazing people through couchsurfing, that have led to many more travels (both for them and for me).
