I'm an open minded person, I'm VERY curious and love to learn and explore a lot of different things and areas of knowledge. I love travelling - my dream is to visit more than 200 countries around the world (yeah, I've seen people who did this, so it is possible! But I'm very far from it...). I can be stubborn, which sometimes can be good because it helps me follow my dreams.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting people in my apartment in Rio, Brazil. And also surfing, of course. Currently I'm traveling the Caribbean, but when I go back to Brazil I'd like to attend CS meetings in Rio.


So far it's been great! I've made good friends both hosting and surfing and the experiences taught me facts about many countries and lifestyle


Traveling, traveling, traveling. Photography, photography, photography. Reading, reading, reading. Movies. Music (specially blues and 60's rock). Playing the guitar. Art in general. Windsurfing. I love to get to know new cultures and interesting people who also like to explore and learn.

Music, Movies, and Books

Books - Jim Rogers' books. Tim Ferriss books. Exploration and travel books. Finance books.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A trip years ago - Me and two friends travelled by car over 2 thousand kilometers from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Montevideo, Uruguay. It was an amazing trip. We got to see so much and to know lots of different cities and people. It was a great month traveling together.
