About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Writing a travel book in order to share all my experiences around the world!

ABOUT ME

I was born in a small town in the province of Cordoba, in the middle of a huge country: Argentina. My parents had acres full of fruit trees and they practiced organic agriculture and macrobiotic food. At the age of six I moved to Patagonia, where my father began working in a National Park. I lived a life surrounded by fresh air, seasonal fruits, lakes and birds. I decided to study Anthropology and Literature.

I have traveled around my country and met several Latin American countries. After working in online Marketing for several months, I decided to start a different journey: aimlessly, looking for a deeper sense of life!

I don't consider myself like a"regular tourist", so I always prefer to do volunteer work, take care of houses, spend more time at each place to truly get to know the culture.

I am a house sitting traveler: For almost 2 years and a half I have been traveling around the world taking care houses in Spain, Italy, Turkey, Cambodia, Indonesia, New Zealand... The truth is that I am very happy with this way of traveling. Not only I found unique places in this beautiful world, also I had the opportunity to meet some special families. They are a very important part of this trip now :)

I have a blog where I write about my experiences around the world (is in Spanish)! www.caminomundos.com

PHILOSOPHY

Now and here :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I think that the best way to get to know a place is to actually live there and be in touch with it's cycles. Of course CouchSurfing it's a delicious way to know special people and ways to live the life!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

The first I did CS I found one of my best friends, who is living in Chezc Republic :) 2 years later I returned to CZ to visit him and th meeting was really great!

Interests

"The moment when, after many years
of hard work and a long voyage
you stand in the centre of your room,
house, half-acre, square mile, island, country,
knowing at last how you got there,
and say, I own this,

is the same moment when the trees unloose
their soft arms from around you,
the birds take back their language,
the cliffs fissure and collapse,
the air moves back from you like a wave
and you can't breathe.

No, they whisper. You own nothing.
You were a visitor, time after time
climbing the hill, planting the flag, proclaiming.
We never belonged to you.
You never found us.
It was always the other way round".

Margaret Atwood

Music, Movies & Books

I really like poetry so always when It's possible I try to read poetry books about the places I am visiting. One of the most lovely poets I found in this worldtrip was Elizaveta Bagriana, a super nice poet from Bulgaria.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Snorkeling in Indonesia, take a Chai in a little town in Turkey, eat delicious pasta in a tratoria outside Rome, swimming in beautiful Spain, go from Pisa to Prague sharing a car and singing a lot, walking and walking in Bangkok, take care a house in a little island from Indonesia, take care a house in Siem Reap and get to know the real Cambodia, leave Argentina and sell everything just to write and travel!
