About Me

I like to get out of my confort zone, most of the times really good things happen.
Life is a never ending learning process.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

You know how good you know your city, your eyes tell a different story than a regular tourist.
On one hand, I like to share the view that I have over my city with foreigners.
On the other hand, when I travel, I enjoy going to unexpected places, besides the tourists' sites.

When I say I want to travel, I don't mean I want to stay at fancy resorts or buy keychains from souvenir shops. When I say I want to travel, I mean I want to explore another place and become part of it. I want to discover coffee shops and hidden streets. I want to hike mountains and walk along quiet beaches. I want to meet people who are not like me, but people who I can like all the same. I want to photograph the people and places I see, I want my mind to be in constant awe of life on Earth. I want to see things with new eyes. I want to look at a map and be able to remember how I was transformed by the places I have been to, the people I have met and the things I have seen. This, I think, is what is at the heart of adventure and that is exactly why I plan on making my life one. By: Unknown
