About the Host, Margoth
I like to work with new people everyday, know them, help them and enjoy to show my country. I run my own bussiness which is property management and some real state.
I studied economics but I do not work on this anymore, now I dedicated to work less, doing meditation very seriously, taking care of my family.
I love to travel so much, love Asia and its culture & foods! I like to read "light" books with nice and inspiring messages! I like to see movies except those with terror, blood or awful crimes, I prefer cartoons than those, I like something that make me laugh and have nice dreams! I like almost any kind of music, except heavy metal.
I am an easy living person (do not ask this to my husband, ha, ha!), like to cook, talk, relax, walk in the mountains, have a cup of coffee with a friend. I use to travel in a very cheap way and sharing with people. This is a nice way to really know the culture of a country and enjoy the trip.
I like cats very much!, to share with my family and friends, to walk and do light exercise, doing yoga and Tai-Chi, to cook at home, I have been vegetarian for a very long time as well as a Zen meditation practicioner in a Center we have here in my province, Heredia. My saing is: enjoy your life as if it will be your last day on Earth! and I also love this phrase: "To live the experiences that life offer to us is and obligation, to suffer its or enjoy its, is optional!
