I was born in Argentina and came to live in UK in 1995. I have Spanish nationality.( I must write this because a xenophobic individual tried to get me out of the UK! but this person only made a fool of herself when she found out I also had European nationality. If you are a hater please do not bother to stay at my home, any signs of xenophobicism will be dealt accordingly. I will open the door and you will LEAVE!!!
I was a Flight Attendant for 6 years and flew with an Irish Airline and a British Airline. I resigned back in 2005 to pursue a different life path which took me to become a film/tv extra by accident. My experiences in the tv industry lead me to write for a website in London and a new independent magazine which is mainly in Spanish. I have a Diploma in Freelance Journalism which I gained in 2004 with ICS, the International Correspondence School, Glasgow.
Moreover, I enjoy dancing, writing and reading and writing Poetry in English and Spanish. I love Languages so much, I am now basic in Arabic and Japanese and I want to learn more but these two languages are hard to master. I started studying Arabic back in 2007 when I took up Belly Dance or Raks Sharki/Oriental Dance as it is better known amongst dancers. Also because my father has Lebanese ancestry, and it was his wish for me to visit Baalbek as I live nearby. In the current climate, I don't know if it is safe to travel to Lebanon and I do have family there. Hopefully, one day I will and will be using Airbnb to stay over and do lots of Dancing! Ideally I would like to book a place with a Belly Dancing good vibe place!
Japanese has been a language I always loved, I love the way it sounds, the culture and want to find out more about Zen which is a Japanese word meaning: Meditation
I like performing and I hosted my first Poetry Event on 15th October 2010 in Covent Garden at the Poetry Place at 22 Betterton Street, London. I danced Raks sharki with a veil while Katy Jungman played the sax, Katy is an amazing muscian, check her out in Sound Cloud ;-)
I also danced and read Poetry in London 23rd November 2012 at Nour Festival in St Peter's Church, Notting Hill, Kensington Park Road W11 2PA. This year I created my first ever e-book through Blurb and you can search me under POETIKALIZ, like it, buy it or simply have a snake preview of my work. Everything I wrote is my own intellectual property, as well as the drawings, and the photos I took. If you want to add me o (website hidden) find me under Poetikaliz and you will be able to share your own poems, stories as well as getting to know other artistes.
TO FUTURE GUESTS!!! Please make sure to upload a photo and some basic information regarding your life and intentions ie holiday, looking for work or found a job and need a place to crash for a while, otherwise I will turn down future guests who do not offer any personal information. Also, have consideration and respect for the way I run my home.
Altough I do offer a free lift from the train station at Hamilton to the flat and a kind trip for you to see the beautiful scenery Scotland has on offer this is not a hint for you to assume I will take you around everywhere. If you would like me to do so please communicate and I can arrange a generous discount. Do not assume I am on holiday as well.
