About Me


I like to travel as much as I can, I love to go to new places, meet new people, eat new food and know new cultures.

Interested for learning everything life can bring. I think I can always learn from my experiences and I try to apply what I learnt to improve who I am.


Between people as between countries, respectful for other's rights means peace.

If you are a good person is more probable that you meet good people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to make others have a nice time in my city, interchange opinions, knowledge and tips. I expect something similar from people that would like to host me :)
I have met a lot of cool local people through CSurfing, so I'm always eager to participate in activities in MXC (when I am not too tired). Unfortunately I am not hosting by the moment.

Me gusta hacer pasar una buena estancia en mi ciudad a quienes vienen a visitarla. También esperaría lo mismo de quienes quisieran hospedarme :)
He conocido a gente super linda aqui en el DF por lo que casi siempre estoy ávida de participar en actividades locales (cuando no estoy muy cansada). Desafortunadamente, por el momento no estoy hospedando.


I knew about CS for a friend I met in, Thank you very much Cris! I had three experiences as surfer in Paris and all of them were great! (June 2010) I've been hosted by: Cristophe, Isadora and Ariel. Before joining CS, many of my closest friends have stayed at my home sometimes.

Antes de unirme a CS muchos de mis amigos cercanos se han quedado en mi casa algunas veces. Me uní a CSurfing por un amigo que conocí através de (Muchas gracias Cris!) tuve 3 experiencias como surfer en París y todas fueron geniales, (Junio 2010).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well living is amazing per se. The point is how do you see the experiences you live.

Bueno, vivir es per se, una experiencia increible. El punto es de qué manera tomas las experiencias que vives.
