About Me

CURRENT MISSION

do I really need one?

ABOUT ME

human looking-like creature...
in a continuos changing process (always for good I will like to think...hehehe...) called life...
so whatever I write here might be a bit useless... specially cause Im lazy enough to update it frequently enough...
BUT, something that havent changed (at least yet) is that Im always in a good mood...
any questions are more than welcome....

PHILOSOPHY

Be happy, life is good...
Life is too short to waste it being unhappy...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

when I have the opportunity I talk about the CS Project to people that dont know about it and encourage them to try CS...
offer a couch, ride, info, tips, etc etc when I can.. surf when I have the chance... attend CS meetings and events when posible... or simply meet with CSers to go for a drink...
ohh and by the way, I read peoples profiles before sending any requests...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

my first experience with CS was in Canada... and was awesome!! changed completely my perspective of traveling... reminded me that there is still people that trust strangers... and that those strangers can become friends...
love it and will keep doing it as long as I can...
I haven´t hosted anybody yet, and that is because I don´t have a permanent house, I´m always moving from one place to another, so that makes it difficult... but if by any chance you are searching for a place to crash, and I have a place, you are more than welcome to join me if you want...
