About Me


Get to know exciting places and make friends around the world


I visited London for the first time when I was 12 and I totally fell in love with this city. I promised myself that I would come and live here one day.

Well, it took me more than two decades to really move to my dream city. Meanwhile, I spent ten years living, working and enjoying Frankfurt am Main. Afterwards I decided to move to Barcelona and enjoy the nice weather for a while. But London was still calling... and here I am!


Live and let live

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been attending to meetings in Barcelona and London and going out with other CSs to language exchanges, concerts, etc.


I have never hosted nor been hosted. But I have been attending to CSs events around Barcelona and London and I've met really nice people who I can call now "my friends".


I love travelling and discovering new places and cultures. I am of a very curious nature and love trying new things. I started practising yoga one year ago, and I absolutely love it!

Cuban salsa is another of my passions. After a few years dancing in the places I have been visiting I have started rumba classes. And they are awesome!

A keen photographer. Just got my new DLR camera and I'm loving it! I love architecture and landscape photography and I've signed up for a portrait course. I'll be reporting on this new approach.
