About Me


“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”


I'm an easy going, fun and helpful 29 year-old brazilian girl.
Worked in cruiseships for a while, travelles quite a bit, learned the basics for every language I could.
Love to meet new people and remain friends after that.
And I love looking at the world through a child's eyes, always amazed and hoping...


What goes around, comes around. So I think carefully before interferring with other people's lives.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
Thomas Jefferson

"I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back."
Maya Angelou

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


For the moment I live in a very small 1room apartment, therefore it may or may not be possible to offer an extra bed (don´t have a couch lol).
But I am always available for coffee, drinks, showing people around Rio, giving tips and/or helping anyway I can! ;)


No experience in the CS community yet.
Hoping to go to meetings, surf couches and offer my couch whenever I can.


traveling, music, photography, books, languages... culture in general!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A different sunrise/sunset everyday, yet amazing every time.
