About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living the life!

ABOUT ME

My best friend would say that I'm nice, totally crazy, that I am quite talkative, that I love to travel, good to meet people, that I like challenges.

PHILOSOPHY

DIY (Do it yourself)
If you have some dreams and idea of how you want your life to be, then, find the way to do it! Nobody will do it for you. It does Worth it, life is great and when you hardly want it, then nothing will go against you, nothing gets impossible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

By beeing a nice surfer when I surf somewhere :)
By meeting people to show them around the city I'm staying
By hosting surfurs or friends of friends whenever it is possible!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have been couchsurfing all around the world, I always met incredibles people, I found a second family in Panama, I'm always really sad when I have to leave my hosts, but always try the find the way to see them again, or at least keep in touch. It even drove me up to the Midburn festival, equivalent of Burning man in the US. I would never have though of doing it otherwise. thanks Lev :)
I hosted a bit as well, but sadly, few of my roommates were agreeing. But you always find a way to help :)

Interests

Beeing free. Trying to keep in mind that life is a gift and should be lived as much as possible.
Trying to go back to basis, by travelling and seeing other way of living. I had the chance to spend 10 days in amazonia with the community shuar, totally isolated from everything. I had the chance to share a dinner with bedouins in Jordan, and sleep under the stars in the wadi rum, directly on the floor.
I had the chance to experiment the communautary life of the midburn in israel. One week of sharing.
I could see the way the Kunas survive in the San blas Islands. Well,tourists help a lot actually.
I could speak for hours with Imaris in one island on the lake titicaca.
Help teachers in the favela complexo da mare in Rio for a couple of weeks. Hearing the stories of these kids. Trying to understand how it can be so cruel.
