About Me

=> What I hate about me?
I'm allergic to cats, cigarettes and mustiness. I also hate the fact that I can't detach myself from breathing, eating and drinking water (I'd like to be more independent). :(

=> So, Leo... hitchhiker?
One day, after my graduation, I decided to give up my stable job as a Systems Analyst and my stable life living surrounded by old friends and comfort at the capital of the state of Minas Gerais to get my ass back to the road. About 9 months later I got a job in Denmark and came for my first time to Europe. Currently I hitchhike almost every weekend when in summer and basically all my holidays and vacation I spend hitchhiking through European countries.

=> A bit more about me
I'm an extremely open minded person, I also LIKE to get to know people's different "worlds" and it doesn't matter how bizare or scarrying they might sound to others. I can be a bit shy sometimes, what really surprises a lot of people who see videos of mine hitchhiking and getting into strangers cars - I'm a bit affraid of bothering others sometimes, or of talking too much (and I also might talk too much sometimes trying to hide that I am actually feeling a bit shy, lol). I often feel myself a bit awkward near people that I don't know very well, like as if I'm an uninvited, but I know that most of the times it's just my mind. If you're a welcoming person (or try to be) that's more unlikely to happen! And I am generally a very welcoming person myself.
Another thing about me is that except for those who already got into my 'friend-zone', I tend to hide that I don't like some stuff - probably because I'm trying to don't sound like "picky" or anything like that in our first talks, but this is actually bad only to myself. Maybe I'm sounding a bit too complex but I'm not really like that, you may read the references left by people that I've met in lots of different situations further down in this page :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

travelled across many places and countries.. hitchhiking.
I also tried to get a ride in on top of a train in Brazil, but it didn't work that day as the train never passed. That was when I took the photo below, but I kept it in mind and it's something I'm still gonna try again one day.
