About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn as much as I can from the world

ABOUT ME

When I was in elementary school I told my mom I would spend my life learning, and pretty much that I've done all my life. Of course, I have to work to be able to afford it.
I'm a respectful and understanding person, who adapts to new environments easily. I love to travel, and to learn from other people and cultures. But I haven't travel as much as I would like. So here I am with the firm resolution to change that.

PHILOSOPHY

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
― Mae West

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

During 10 months I traveled through Japan, Korea, and Taiwan and met wonderful people through CS.
Now, while I'm planning my next trip, I hope to host as many people as I can. I'm at my parents house, so I need to consult with them, but they are usually cool about it.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far, my experience has been positive.
In general, all my host and guest were awesome people, and I had a chance to learn new things from all of them.
For me, when I travel the human experience is as important as the history of a country. And through couchsurfing I have met diverse people that have enriched my life.

Interests

I enjoy learning and experiencing history, nature, art, and food of the places I visit.
I like to immerse my self as much as I can in the places I visit.

  • arts
  • dining
  • cooking
  • recipes
  • tv
  • traveling
  • pottery
  • history
  • soapmaking

Music, Movies, and Books

I might prefer ska to hip hop, and folk to pop, but in general I enjoy all kinds of music, and love to sing even though I might be tone deaf.
I admit I'm not the best dancer, but love latin music and dance to its diverse rhythms.
In literature, I prefer fiction to nonfiction. I particularly like adventure, mystery, and coming of age stories. And I have a particular fascination to Shoujo Manga, must be the little teen girl within me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well, this world is full of amazing things to see and do. I'm sure we can talk bout them, over a drink, once we meet.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach cooking, I've been told I'm a good cook
Lately I got into soapmaking.
If interested i can teach you Spanish, and English.
At the moment,I'm interested on learning Japanese, and Korean.
I would love to learn pottery, recipes from all over the world,and many other things.
For me,life in general,and traveling in particular are always learning opportunities.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share the memories of my trips, my cooking, my not so secret (though embarrassing) obsession with Arashi, and my knowledge on Japanese and Korean TV (exposure to a language is essential to learn it, right?).

Countries I’ve Visited

Canada, Dominican Republic, France, Iceland, Italy, Japan, South Korea, United Kingdom

Countries I’ve Lived In

Spain, United States
