About Me


Get lost, meet interesting people, learn from others


Big smile, big eyes and big heart. I would like to leave everything behind, move to the jungle or chapada diamantina in Brazil and live my life trekking, eating fruits, dancing, reading, meeting new people and learning.


don't regret a thing and don't avoid making mistakes! Life happens when you're lost or alone.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted people in NYC, in England and in San Francisco and I have surfed many times all around the world. I always like to make my host live or feel something different as I believe every day should be special.


already surfed in Hong Kong, Beijing, Europe and Brazil and hosted people in my place in NYC and in England.(many times outside of couchsurfing, just people being so nice to host me without thinking I was a stranger).


Science, social media, literature and MUSIC!! I wish I had studied anthropology (although I am doing it non-officially during my travels just by talking and reading people's minds)

Music, Movies, and Books

Every time I travel I jump into the culture so right now I am all about samba, forro and pagode; Chico buarque and Jorge Ben.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

the people I met all around the world opened my eyes, my heart and my mind. I've discovered more with their stories and words. I'd like to speak many more languages to understand everyone in this world.
