We're a couple that usually travel and welcome people together. So here I'm talking a bit of both of us :))
Have fun :))
We know how to laugh of ourself. And we're laughing all the time.
We're also curious and love to meet new people and discover new places, cultures, ways of thinking and worlds. We're really open to differents points of view, but we fight for the things that we believe and love to have longs conversations about life, politics and art.
Hermano is doing a master in Film Studies and learning german.
Izabel a PHD in latin-american Literature, she is also trying everyday to be a better person: to hear more, speak less and take deep breaths once in a while.
"Sich in einer Stadt nicht zurechtfinden heisst nicht viel. In einer Stadt sich aber zu verirren, wie man in einem Walde sich verirrt, braucht Schulung. Da müssen Strassennamen zu dem Irrenden so sprechen wie das Knacken trockner Reiser und kleine Strassen in Stadtinnern ihm die Tageszeiten so deutlich wie eine Bergmulde widerspiegeln. Diese Kunst habe ich spät gelernt." W. Benjamin
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
We intend to meet as many people as possible and share experiences, hosting and surfing.
We believe the best way to know a place is to get close to everyday life, knowing people and doing what they do, going to the places they go. We always try to run away from Lonely Planet. ;)
Othwerwise, the best way to fall in love again to the place where you live is introducing it to another people. So we also love having people at my house and take them to the places that we love. We think it's incredible when you see someone falling in love to your homecity.
We've hosted some people, surfed at some places.
But the most important is that I've met wonderful people who became my friends for the life or just for one night.
