Hi there! I'm Carmen. I'm from Cuba, a small island at the Carribbean. I love to travel around, get to know new cultures and people and I like to do it in the most authentic way as possible. That's why I'm here :)
I graduated in German literature before last year, did a year of social service teaching german and have spent this last year as an aupair in Germany. What I like the most about traveling is getting to know the lifestyle and customs of people and maybe incorporating them to my own lifestyle, visiting food markets, trying new dishes. I like to visit big vibrant cities but I also enjoy a lot going to smalltowns none has heard about and wandering in nature. Until the date I've been in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Spain and France.
Usually, I spend my freetime wandering around and taking photos, reading, baking, going to art exhibitions, concerts, handcrafting, meeting friends to fool around, etc. In Havana I live close to the sea so I also go scuba diving once in a while and started to learn windsurfing, and of course: dancing (although I'm not a very good dancer for the cuban standards hihi)
I'm specially interested in art, literature, architecture, cuisine, botanique, permaculture, sustainability and ecofriendly ways of life.
I studied german literature and I've worked as a DaF teacher, translator, travel guide and babysitter.
I really love to cook (the whole process: from picking the perfect fresh ingredients at the market, to decorating the plates and of course seeing nice people enjoying it). Lately, I'm obsessed with all kind of asian dumplings and spring berry cakes.
I like to work outdoors, however, I don't have much experiene with gardening, but I'm willing to learn and I don't mind to get my hands dirty.
