About Me

I'm on my way around the world, having visited 132 countries 🌏

I use CS for hosting way more than being a guest and understand the demands you might have, from laundry, tips around the city or just being lazy after a long bus journey across Brazil.
I prefer short stay requests, so please include your travel plans :)


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Whenever I travel as a CS guest I am remembered of how this community is so important for those who are on the road, remembering to keep in mind the traveller's necessity and challenges, trying hard to create a safe, fun and peaceful environment for the stay during a short or long travel.

The idea of throwing the routine upside down and sharing some time with completely different origins, paths and backgrounds is thrilling! CouchSurfing - hosting or travelling has been present on some of my best travel experiences.


Travelling and exchanging notes on General Culture, Geography and World History, Travel Hacks, Hiking Spots, Beers, Soccer and whatever comes.

Music, Movies, and Books

The classics, the award winners and the non-brainers
Guns, Germs and Steel, The Song of the Dodo and 100 years of Solitude are my favorite books, and the only movie that can beat 22 Jump Street is 21 Jump Street.
