About Me


"The man needs to travel.
On his own, not through stories, photos, books or television.
Need to travel by himself, with his eyes and feet, to understand what belongs to him.
So one day he can plant is own trees and give them the true value.
Knowing the cold to enjoy the heat. And the opposite.
Feel the distance and homelessness to be well under is own roof.
A man must travel to places that do not know, to break this arrogance that makes us see the world as we imagine, not simply as it is or can be.
That makes us teachers and doctors of what we didn't see when we should be students, and simply go to see. "
Amyr Klink, in "Mar sem fim".


Something about me?...
I'm a normal and friendly guy. Easy going person, more a listener than a talker... but the best description is the one made by others.


"Keep life simple"

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
Henry David Thoreau

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm just starting, although be in CS for some time.
I haven't any CS experience yet, but I'm looking forward for my first one!
In all my trips I stayed in hostels or something like that. Now it's time to discover a new way of travelling!


Travel... discover new cultures and meet other people
Hiking... being outside, in mountains
Photography, see and capture things from a different perspective

Music, Movies, and Books

Music depends of the mood, but mainly alternative rock
Movies... too many stuff... cinema is a old hobby
Books? humm... the one in my nightstand

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sometimes we do amazing things... that's the joy of life.
The last amazing thing I have done, was hike around Annapurna mountains in Nepal, more than 200 km in two weeks.

Teach, Learn, Share

We have always more to learn than to teach.
