About Me

CURRENT MISSION

HappIERness, whatelse? Usual? Important! :)

ABOUT ME

One person is an Universe. I'm not very into virtual relationships, so the best is to know someone personally. :) But... I think I am an easy going guy, cool, not complicated, persistent... :)

My name is Filipe or Pipo (I prefer this nickname ;) and I am a Portuguese guy, who has lived in Australia for about 5 years. About life and choices, I might be a bit affraid re making certain decisions and changing my life but I am more affraid about the possibility of regretting in the future what I wouldn't have done. I like everything regarding human experiences. That's why travelling is so important, because we may find so different backgrounds and people and at last we find ourselves.
Wisdom begins in (to) wonder - minds are like books: they only work when they are open. : )

PHILOSOPHY

One sentence from one portuguese poem: 'Em qualquer aventura, o importante não é chegar, é partir'. Something like this: 'In every adventure, the most important is the departure, not the arrival'. :) So, the way, not (as much) the destiny.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

By sharing experiences and promoting trust amongst people. We should regain trust, things would be much different that way... Fear strains us, love expands. And for me, this is essentially what Couchsurfing is about, spreading trust and love so that we can grow and be happIER, because happiness itself is within us. = )

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have had marvelous experiences through couchsurfing, I am a real fan of this concept!

Interests

Everything which brings (more) happiness. It's hard to define my interests because I am a very positive (differet from irrealistic) person, so I can see the plus in (almost) everything. A few examples: horse riding, swimming, travelling (of course), family, friends, my dog, movies, etc, etc.. So many nice things to do in this life!! : )

Music, Movies, and Books

Book: Conversations with God is my bible (and I am not a religious guy, I'd rather say a spiritual one, as all of us, either you are aware of it or not.
Movie: Avatar
so many, So many...
