About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Move on with my life. New house, new job. New travels!

ABOUT ME

It's hard to tell "All about me" in just few words here. So I will just say I'm a person ready to explore everything life has to show me. I want more of everything and I'm looking for ways of doing it.

PHILOSOPHY

Im going through a great process of change, getting to know myself and others. Not sure I will ever have a complete answer for this.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Travelling is my biggest passion even though I have done so little of it yet due to time and money limitations... But that's why Im on CS: because even when I can't travel, I can still meet up with travellers from around the world and 'travel' in their stories!

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Back in 2010 I got the 'travel bug' that has haunted me since then, making staying at one place and not traveling feel like a torturous prison. And CS community was a big part of it, not just as a powerful tool for traveling - either by having a place to crash or someone to talk to about the places I'm going - and also sharing a little bit of my hometown when we get visitors.

I have also made lifelong friendships with other local CSers and our great meetings, Invasions and Nationals!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Surfed in a lot of places both in USA, in Europe and in Brazil! Met CSers regularly just to hang out both while traveling around in the US and in Connecticut, where I lived for 2 years! Back in Brazil, I try to go to as many meetings we have in my town and also neighboring towns, but also met CSers when I visited Rio, São Paulo, Belo Horizonte, Curitiba, Uberlândia, Porto Alegre and Brasília!! Always amazing experiences!
On my first travel to Europe, I have surfed at Paris and Barcelona and met people just to hang out in Munich and Frankfurt.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Leaving everything behind in Brazil and moving to USA has been the most amazing thing I've ever done because that was a life changing experience. Studying abroad and having the opportunity to get to know different people and places while also testing your limits and expanding your own point of views is priceless I will treasure this experience forever.
As a history nerd, touching a fairly well-preseved column from old Roman Empire was pretty neat as well.
Can't wait to be able to go on my next adventure sometime soon and see even more of the world!

Teach, Learn, Share

Sadly, nobody becomes a teacher because they want to get rich... So teaching is something you need to be passionate about to the point of doing it for free if you have to. And the only thing I love more than teaching is learning.
=)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I have plenty of funny stories and nerd-ish information to share. You will not be bored.
I can't really cook but my grocery shopping and dish washing skills are remarkable so I always help in a cook-out meeting!
