Enjoy Life and jump into puddles (http://youtu.be/XWdkz5odzds)
We work for living and live to travel.
Life is here, live it. No big deal about it.
No gods, no "energies", no karmas.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Over the years we hosted more than 20 couch-surfers.
It's really a great experience and we've made really good friends and we already surfed some of their couches.
One of this days we must do a couchsurfing guests visit trip :P
But the real test is yet to come: surf with unknowns :)
We are lazy outdoor activities fans and participate in orienteering and adventure races competitions.
We also like to do mountain hiking and sometimes we go climbing - we are very bad at it, only IV/V level climbing :)
We are also into folk/traditional music/dance and never miss a concert or festival near us :)
MJ (Maria João) is into International Relations and I also like the subject, so we are always willing to share opinions on foreign politics with other people.
When traveling we always try to talk to locals about those kind of subjects and try to understand what they think of the local/global problems/situations/etc.
