About Me

CURRENT MISSION

finding inner peace and cruising around the world :-)

ABOUT ME

Born in Brazil and out for a round the world trip :D

In general it's hard to describe yourself, but I guess kind of gentle, peaceful and witty...

Love traveling, curious about tech and into several sports..

Further info shall be discovered personally only :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosting when I can and surfing whenever possible. If the date is off, I try to give a little of assistance...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted quite a number of people and surfed in Brazil and in other countries as well. Been to some activities created in CS and also met travelers that were in the same city as me to walk around and go out at night. CS is a really good way to meet interesting people :) Promoted some meetings in Niteroi :p

Interests

Indeed traveling is beyond leisure, more towards a passion and now my full time occupation.
When at home in Brazil, it was common to go ride a bike along the coast or play some tennis/soccer. In quiet days having some wine and watching a good set of movies or tv series.
Recently I've been dedicating some time to the blog (cafedosviajantes.com) and collaborating in travel forums, while drifting around the world. To improve in photography is one of the main goals during the trip.
Also, one of the things I'm trying is to learn a bit of the languages wherever we go. It's fascinating to see how people get happy just by seeing you're making even the smallest effort to be polite and get by without english or mimics :D

Music, Movies & Books

I really enjoy digging up new movies, iranian, korean, argentinian, etc... Also love mostly any Hitchcock/Kubrick/W.Allen/Tarantino movie...

Music I'd go around blues, rock, indie, electronic and so on...

Regarding books I'm all over travel books, such as guides and travel adventures, like a brazilian that crossed the Atlantic rowing. Authors I'd say Saramago and Verissimo, good biographies...
