About Me

I have to strike the right balance between personality, originality, and humor lol. Basically, I love life and I cherish living life. I am and outgoing person. I enjoy the outdoors, travelling, restaurants, laughing, going to cultural events, and socialising with lovely people. Its just better living and sharing life with nice people.
I adore water sports too!
I enjoy having a nice conversation over a glass of wine any time!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting local people on my travelings , I am not the typical tourist , I am more like an explorer.

Music, Movies, and Books

BOOKS I enjoy very much psychological drama stories , true stories such Conviction . I have an amazing ability to completely lose myself in whatever I am reading when I am totally alone. I like very much a good arse kicking movie too !

MOVIES As far as movies go, I generally lean the same direction as books. With the added ingredient of true stories. I love legal dramas Civil Action, Philadelphia, Erin Brokovich etc I'm a huge fan of comedies though I am not the fan of horror movies. Hangover the trilogy made me laugh sooo much,I think it is my favorite trilogy
God's Compas movie is inspiring and dramatic compelling which helped me to find morals back into my life.

MUSIC: I am generally a huge fan of R&B into the hip-hop beats divas such the likes of Mary J. Blige - No More Drama, Usher, Joe " Table For Two". I enjoy current pop music too, and music from the 80's charts. Kizomba

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I am very humanitarian person. I represent vulnerable people in court and fight for their civil, human rights to help them fulfilled their lives. I like to Fight for Social Justice that will benefit our messed up society .
I worked as a volunteer in a children's home in Mozambique, where I met Ivan and now sponsor him , to improve his quality of life .He suffers from Cerebral Palsy but he has a contagious laugh that brights my day when I talk to him. He loves his scooters and walking aids that help him learn to walk. Don't you think is amazing.....to sponsor disable kids directly without going through international fat cats charities ?. Do it yourself it brings so much joy into your life seeing a child grow and happier.

I taught Scuba Diving as a Scuba diving Instructor in wonderful oceans, dove with amazing wildlife such Whale Shark, tiger and hammerhead Sharks etc and traveled the world to see other people's ways of life.
Took place as a crew in the Fast Net Sailing race from England to Ireland in 2011, what an adrenaline ! etc..

Teach, Learn, Share

I could have a go at teaching something I know I guess like Spanish !
I am open minded about things. I would like to know know what my host might be into , so I can join the host in sharing his or her interest . I like in exploring, sailing . I love learning about local culture and history, local food and wine, and whatever the place has to offer, hanging out with local people.

What I might want to share with my host? I guess my life experiences and to make funny enjoyable memories with them. As a surfer, I like to be respectful of my host and share a positive attitude and be open mind. I've traveled a lot so I can share stories .

What I Can Share with Hosts

My life experiences which are plenty. I am super social when I travel. I talk with whomever I'm sitting next to on the bus, on a plane, on chapas etc. I chat with vendors. I am a generous person altogether and very considerate as a guess.

I am friendly, interesting, and honest person . My understanding is that Couch Surfing is about having a cultural exchange experience, meeting locals and hanging out wit them, have fun and be safe, lovely bring it on!
