ABOUT ME

The description is about Véronique but Guillermo is a big part of this participation on CS as we travel together and would both receive you home. Guillermo is Cuban so his first language is Spanish but he also speaks fluently German, French and we both get by in English! He is really positive and always smiles, he has a special way to get along with everybody and make you feel good. He is the kind of person you remember because of his charm and great energy. You can tell I'm not really objective... ; )

About me: One day at the time, I love to learn, to discover, to taste and to share. As learning new stuff is a passion, I felt a way to give back was to teach, to teach my first language and the culture that comes with it. I once decided I would speak fluently 5 languages and I can get by in 4 so... I'm getting there! Languages are something really special to me, le français dans lequel je suis plongée toute petite, el espanol de cual me enamoré y a cual pertenece parte de mi vida, o português com qual ainda estou lutando e que tem uma musica muito linda. After 2 years spent in Cuba, I feel a bit cubana and I love la isla, people there and salsa. I prefer knowing well a place to visiting 12 countries in a week...

I'm crazy about chocolate and good food. Some people think I'm an "environment freak", I try to use less, re-use and recycle. Vegetarian. I hate to iron, I think I might an allergy to it. I like to volunteer when I'm abroad. In fact, I like to live like people from the place, use local means of transportation, eat what they eat, know more about traditions, culture, food and drinks (did I say food?). I usually don't step on the lines of the sidewalks, don't ask me why. People say I speak really quick in French. I can't cook without tasting, I make my own bread and yogourt and lots of cookies and muffins. I like to get on a plane, to go to the airport and imagine all the reasons why people are there. I'm simple and maybe a bit complicated too: I sometimes travel alone but Im shy to call somewhere to get information. I do observe a lot and I'm a good listener. I try to help others in any ways.

PHILOSOPHY

One day at the time, going with the flow. Do not fight, especially against yourself. Be, don't try to become.

Et me le répéter quand j'oublie.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We did learn a lot about Brasil through the CSers we met and shared great moments. It's now great to welcome CSers in Montreal.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We had great CS experiences in Brasil. I met people in Fortaleza just for a drink and made friends and we also surfed in some cities in nordeste. Back in Montreal, we're happy to know more about the world, sharing good time with couch surfers.
