About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I want to know what's on the other side of our plans, I want to discover new stuff together to people because it's way more interesting.

ABOUT ME

You can discover it once you talk to me

I can say that as my host you're more than invited to feel comfortable and share good moments with me and my friends and we of course can hang around through the city to visit cool places, go to parties and nice events and celebrate :)

And if I'm surfing I will be very flexible and follow the house's rules (Im pretty good on it, dont worry). If you can't go out with me, don't worry, anyway we can do great things together and we're in touch :)

Im completelly tolerant with any kind of person, my main goal is to know people from different cultures and points of view... that's the life's most incredible stuff to me: the human being :D

and... I love environment, landscapes... and Art, so I like to visit museums as well as the camp and beautiful places when Im travelling. Sometimes love to party, I can wake up very early to visit the city and then at night can go party. And sometimes I just want to relax. We don't need to go to a party if we're having great time with friends doing something nice.

But you know... it all depends on my mood. It's so hard to describe yourself, because we are many things :)

And what about you ?

PHILOSOPHY

agnostic, plus intending to do my best for the world and my folks.

also take a look at the politics, it makes the difference in our lives, we have to know whats these motherfuckers are intendig to fight against corruption and fascism.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I always wanted to do a CouchSurfing's account, but never did because hadnt how dig people in my hometown... now im living alone and far from my parents, soon its possible.

As surfer, I always use it when Im travelling and make incredible friends who gives me hope to the future :) This website is amazing and full of marvelous people !

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have known a lot of people from other places around the globe, specially israelis because of a great friend of mine who is half israeli/brazilian and lives here in Brazil now... then i had the opportunity to know a lot of his friends.

Now that im living in Pelotas which is a passage's city from those who comes from Uruguayan cost and those who comes from other cities in Rio Grande do Sul state, i also have the possibility to know other people here... the city itself is a touristic and historical place :-)

I have hosted many people from many places of the world here and its being amazing since then.

Im used to cultural shocks and travelling stress, know how to deal and talk to those who feels bad sometimes because of the distance from home... specially with alcohol (kidding).

Seriously, i seek simple things to get up my mood... i think the most fantastic things i have ever seen or done are things that i could touch, eyes that i could see, not great things but things that captures u in that tiny moment of ur life.
