Hi! My name is Ana and I am kind of a pixie — small, nagging and a geek. I’ve spent the first half of my life in the small island were I was born. As I grew up, I had a clear view of the Atlantic Ocean and to what I thought were dolphins but later turned out to be tuna fish. I wanted to become a mermaid and paint on my time off… from being a mermaid. The second half... well that has been a crazy ride.
I've graduated from sculpture, stop motion and culinary arts and am now a student again, this time of Traditional Chinese Medicine :)
Besides being an Airbnb host, I do cooking workshops and I cooperate with a local vegan restaurant in Moraria, one of the oldest, and more charismatic, neighborhoods in Lisbon.
My favorite things in the world are eating, or any food related activity, going to the cinema with my screenwriter partner, spending time with my nephews, watching Japanese anime (or reading manga) and studying MTC.
I like to make my own cosmetics, house cleaning products and granola :) I like to support the animal killing industry as little as I can and the local farmers and much as I can. I like to reuse, recycle, and upcycle.
I lived in France for my Erasmus and in New York and LA for my boyfriend's Master in screen writing. So I'm comfortable with both English and French.
One of the happiest moments in my life was when I was cooking in a hostel in Lisbon. I love to exchange food and ideas with people from around the world, it's my secret recipe for low cost traveling and to keep and open mind.
The other happiest moment is now :)
