About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Fame, RocknRoll and World Exploration

ABOUT ME

Omnivore. Strongly believe I fell on a giant Acid Cauldron at the age of 5. Thus my eternal constant sense of fascination for the smaller mundane things. Curious. Constantly hungry for both food and new experiences, sights, colours, sounds.
Wayfarer. Big time.
Professional 'trivial thoughts' journal writer.
Guilty of sharing a food picture every now and then.
Singer song writer (or something of the sort).
Moved to London 6 years ago from Argentina to reinvent myself and pursue my musical dream.

PHILOSOPHY

Whether you believe you can do a thing or not, you are right. - Henry Ford.

Law Of Atraction.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am happy to meet up with people for coffee and food and drinks!
Unfortunately I cant host people at the moment since I share my house with two other people who are not really comfortable with the CS idea! :/
sorry!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've surfed loads of times and had the most fun and interesting experiences ever.

Interests

MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC.
Love learning new stuff, experiencing things I don't know (EXOTIC FOOD, new places, new unknown activities), extreme sports (I don't practice any but love walking on the edge of a cliff, crossing suspension bridges, love heights).
I'm interested in Buddhism but LOVE to listen to other people points of view and philosophies, as long as they are not close minded and believe that they are the masters of the Truth. You can always learn a lot from other people and open your mind to new worlds of knowledge.
Yoga. Metaphysics.
As I said before love to eat: junk food, "gourmet" food,all kind of food. When I travel one of my main concerns is to try exotic and typical plates!
COFFEE, coffee, COFFEE, vodka and Good Red Wine. Oh yes, and Coffee
And of course: music, singing, theatre, movies. MUSIC FESTIVALS!
Also love learning new Languages!

Music, Movies, and Books

Any old time you choose it.
It's gotta be rock n roll music if you wanna dance with me.

Blues, Jazz are VERY VERY much loved as well. Enjoy Classical music as well.
Can dance to practically ANYTHING except maybe techno and electronic music

Books that pop into my mind right now (or that I can see in my bookshelf as I write): The life of Hunger, Oscar Wilde complete works, Crime and punishment, M train, Wind-up bird, Norwegian Woods, The Wind in the Willows, Alice in Wonderland, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol.

Tv shows I can think of.... Six Feet Under, Curb Your enthusiasm, HUMANITY!!! (Netflix), Fargo, The end of the F...world...

MOVIES: Kubric, Wes anderson, old, new. I always go blank when it comes to mentioning favourite whatever but I love watching movies! A girl walks home alone at night, just came to mind. Gorgeous cinematography! Do watch!

- dont believe in favourites! There's a perfect something for each time and mood in your life. How could you stick to one?!

(For the record, yes- I tend to over use exclamation marks)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

GLASTONBURY 2011 (and all of the Glastonburies that came after that)

I was part of the movie There be Dragons (2011). It was AMAZING. A real Hollywood production. I filmed a small scene with Charlie Cox. It was really exciting, the camera was HUGE, and I was suddenly treated like a movie star, it was really fun. But what was more fun even, was filming as an extra a scene in the middle of war. I had to run across the trenches, bombs exploding everywhere, fire shots, you didn't know where to run (actually in one of the shots I got out of my 'runnin route' and got a little bit scared: ran in one direction=bomb exploded in front of me, ran to the opposite direction=another bomb exploded, I couldn't see where to run next cause smoke was everywhere and dust and garbage were falling into my head) it felt like real war (but knowing it was fake, so FUUUUN). A little boy's dream come true!
