About Me

If you're intending to write us a Couch Request, please read our profile carefully. See if we have something in common or that the spirit's flowing :)
And we are not fans of unpersonalized messages (type of copy/paste) from members that just registered recently and feel to lazy to fill out their profile and/or gathering references. Couchsurfing is about trusting people, keep that in mind.
And please let us know WHY THE HELL WE SHOULD HOST YOU! Convince us, and our couch & hearts will be open for you :)

About me or let's say about us:
Bine (31 yrs old), I am living in Lisbon for 4 years now. I fell in love with the city.
Ritson (28 yrs old) is originally from Cape Verde and already here for 6 years now. He is working as a bartender & table service guy. We’re together as a couple for 3 years now and nearly living together for the same period, too.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We are interested in SURFING, HOSTING, joining EVENTS and helping the COMMUNITY (remember: you get what you give)


We love to travel (who doesn’t) and we love to cook! We’re trying to pursue a unmaterialistic and pure kind of lifestyle; for example many of the decorations in our house we found on flea markets, second hand stores and sometimes even on the streets (unbelievable what people consider as “trash”).
Ritson’s a huge fan of Bob Marley (but he is not a Rastafari and we ain’t smoking weed ;) ) We love the ocean (although Ritson claims the ocean here is waaaay to cold for an African; we do surfing & bodyboarding).
And of course we share the love for Lisbon! Especially the area around (towards Intendente, Anjos, Mouraria) is super multi cultural; you can basically travel half of the world by just walking down one street, there’s Chinese & Indian & Bangladeshi restaurants, shops, markets; African bars, Ukrainian hairdressers and so on…. And oh yes there is the German Goethe Institute close by, they are serving cold fresh German beer :)
