About Me

I would describe myself as an enthusiastic and responsible person who is also very active and extremely eager to work and learn. More significantly, I feel particularly passionate about nature, biodiversity and conservation, that's why I love to travel and know new places, learn about nature there and wonder with landscapes, food, people and the environment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to learn about the culture of the different countries that I would visit, different towns and cities in Spain too, and I consider that the best way to do this is meeting local people.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to all kinds of music. Depending on the moment and the situation I choose one or the other.
I can't choose my favourite film... I'm still in love with Disney but generally I like Sci-Fi, adventures and action films. I'm so sorry, I am really fearful so I hate horror films!!
The same for books, I like to all kinds!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I do not know if this will be incredible, but I am very happy: doing internships I had the opportunity to dive with tuna and in other occasion, we threw ourselves into the sea after a sighting, where the bathymetry was 2500m deep to hear the clicks the sperm whales issued during the hunt. I was also at the right time and the right place to see a minke whale jumping out of the water and a group of dolphins listed with lots of pups.

As well as helping, I always have some funny anecdote to tell and a lot to learn! :)
