Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am always ready to show you the city arond, meet for a beer or a coffe.

Here there are some places that I love in my hometow: Floripa (an island in south of Brazil) and that I can take you. It's guide that I've posted in my blog (in Portuguese)

Since 2013, I have been living in China and always joining the events and meetings.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had my first experience, being a surfer in rio, in 2009. Also, I've met many people that were surfing in floripa, we generally have a drink or party together.

I went to Europe in august 2011, and spent 3 months there traveling around. I was hosted by some CS, also I went to some meetings and I met some people from CS and we hang out together.

In China, where I have been living for more than a year, I used to go to the meeting very often, and most of my friends there met on CS!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One of the most amazing things was: I am living in CHINA! I have done hiking in the great wall (but not the comercial one, the original ruines), I`ve been to Jericoacora, a paradise hidden in Ceara - Brasil, I've done a backpackers trip around Europe by myself for 3 months. Also I've seen the Van Gogh's, Picasso's and Lautrec's painting live, what make me cry. I met his Holiness Dalai Lama. FUERZA BRUTA was the most amazing and sensitive concert I've been in my whole life. Another amazing one, was to discover the most beautiful place in my town, a secret beach, by a trail. I've worked in the biggest Casino in USA (in a Indian area in Connecticut). Besides, I was at Carnaval in Rio in 2010 and 2013 and I falling in love for the Cidade Maravilhosa. One day I asked for money for a homeless, and (surprisely) he gave me!
