About Me

Hi, I'm Alana, 27 yo, living in São Paulo my whole life, but dreaming (for now) of seeing the world.
I love music, especially concerts and festivals (Lollapalooza fan here), movies, food, bars, beers and all those things that help us enjoy life.
I also love travelling and I've been travelling in Brazil for a while, trying to get to know my big and beatiful country; who knows which country/city will be the next?
I'm a huge fan of travelling by myself, I really enjoy the freedom and the knowledge that we gain from this kind of experience, but people are the element that can turn you trip from great to awesome, so let's talk, walk, have a beer and get to know each other :)
