About Me

Hi, I'm a quiet girl, but at the same time I always try to be on the move and do new things. I like to travel and meet new people and new cultures. I love going out with friends, talking, eating (açaí, coffee and ice cream are my favorites), dancing (forró and zouk), going to the movies, reading, practicing sports, mainly in contact with nature.

Oi, sou uma garota tranquila, mas ao mesmo tempo eu sempre procuro estar em movimento e fazer coisas novas. Eu gosto de viajar e conhecer novas pessoas e novas culturas. Eu amo sair com amigos, conversar, comer (açaí, café e sorvete são meus favoritos), dançar (forró e zouk), ir ao cinema, ler, praticar esportes, principalmente em contato com a natureza.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I met Couchsurfing in Mexico City when a friend where I was staying took me to a meeting at the Arena of Mexico to watch lucha libre. When I came to my city I decided to attend the meetings here and I have met a lot of interesting people, trained languages and shared about travel and culture.

I love sharing experiences, both listening and talking about them.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like everything in this sphere, I do not label much, it depends a lot on my moment, but there are some that stand out:

Music: I love Brazilian music and jazz and there are two singers who won my heart: Amy Winehouse and Tulipa Ruiz. I love dancing forró and zouk, I also risk bachata, samba and salsa.

Movies: I love independent cinema, Brazilian cinema, French cinema, Spanish cinema and I like Pedro Almodóvar, but I watch blockbuster movies too, without labels. I participate in some movie clubs here in Fortaleza.

Books: I read about everything, I really enjoyed Cien Años de Soledad by Gabriel García Marquez.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

All my travels have something incredible, but some things I remember are:

- My first trip out of my city was by bus, Fortaleza (CE) - Curitiba (PR), were three days on the road (3,487.4 km)

- I already went to a nudist beach in Tambaba (PB)

- I was able to enter the radio of a program that I liked very much (Pânico na Jovem Pan) by much insistence and ended up giving interview, I had my days of fame in the college :D

- Taking a truck ride in the interior of Maranhão when traveling for work

- Learn to surf in Pipa (RN)

- Fly paragliding in Pacatuba (CE)

- Knowing a beach in the interior of Ceará where everyone is from the same family

- Miss my flight back to Panama from Mexico, stay two days at the airport and get back for free to Brazil (this story is long)

- Being scratched by a katana in Iguazu Falls and having to take 10 anti-rabies vaccines

And in general have greater contact with nature and animals (fish, dolphins etc), this is always something magical!

Teach, Learn, Share

Teaching: Portuguese, Spanish, dancing forró and food safety at home (important things! I said that I was a food engineer).
Learn: how to be less anxious: P, new languages, world culture.
Share: our passion for the world :)
