Join Couchsurfing to see Flor’s full profile. It’s free!
I am Flor Costa Almar, a 26 years old Argentinian girl. I am originally from a small village called Rojas in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina but spent the last 8 years in the capital of Buenos Aires where I studied Medicine.
I finished my degree last year on July, and decided to make a break and spend one year traveling. My first destination was Dubai where my sister lives and then I lived 8 months in New Zealand, with a working holiday visa. Last June I visited Greece with two friends for like 10 days and finally arrived to Barcelona, where I am actually living till the end of august.
I am doing part of my internship here in Barcelona, and if everything goes as it is planned I will finish it in Argentina and specialize in pediatrics.
I think the decision to travel for a year is one of the greatest things I have ever done. It helped me to find my self in many ways, made me feel more confident and started to feel real independence.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I think Couchsurfing is a good way to meet local people who you wouldn't meet if you stay at a hostel, because there you find people from other places who are traveling as well, which is a good idea but it's different.
Music, Movies, and Books
I enjoy listening to any kind of music, specially jazz. I used to play saxophone, it was impossible to take it with me so I bought a ukelele and started learning during my travel. Other thing I love is watching movies during summer in open spaces with friends.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One of the most amazing things I have done is a meditation course last February. I did a 10 day meditation course and practice the technic since then. It changed my life for better.
