About Me

ABOUT ME

I am originally from El Salvador but lived in San Francisco during my studies. I am now a marriage and family therapist and a preschool teacher. I love love children but i love traveling even more so last year I decided to drop everything and take a year to travel around the world!

I enjoy meeting people, getting to know more about other cultures, and having a good time :)
I do not drink, smoke, and I am VEGETARIAN. I am very independent and love exploring places on my own but sometimes it's nice to have an extra person to talk to and discover cities with.

I also LOVE LOVE LOVE photography but don't
Know much about it. In this journey i hope to learn more about how to take pictures and train my eye :)

*** PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT send me friend requests if you have never met me nor introduced yourself first in a message and have had an exchange. Thank you.

PHILOSOPHY

"Be good to people"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

After many years of having a dormant account due to inability to host at the place where I lived I am finally able to try CS and trying to get together with locals as I travel.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have only recently started to use couch surfing for staying with people as well as to hang out with locals in different cities and I really enjoy it. I feel like CS gives people the opportunity to really get to know a country better and to get in touch with the culture of that country.
I have couch surfed in Sri Lanka, Iran, and Turkey.

Interests

traveling, culture, photography, art, FOOD!
I love food! Although I am a vegetarian and that narrows my choices when i travel i still think that one of the greatest pleasures in life is eating (and sleeping!)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

For me it was having the courage to sell everything that I owned and just take a leap of faith and traveling solo around the world.

What I Can Share with Hosts

With hosts I can share more about my country, El Salvador, and some travel stories :-)
