About Me


Retomar meus planos de tentar dominar o mundo depois que a pandemia acabar!

Sou uma pessoa pronta para explorar tudo que a vida tem a me oferecer.
Sempre quero mais de tudo e busco maneiras de conseguir o que quero.

Por que não?

Reconquer the world after the pandemic is over!

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.

Why not?

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!


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!


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 tried 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! Now that I'm leaving in Spain and I was welcomed to Vigo CS community and I love to go to our weekly and monthly meetings.
On my travels to Europe, I have surfed in Madrid, Barcelona, Dresden, Paris and Brussels, and met people just to hang out in Barcelona, Dresden, Munich, Berlin, Frankfurt, Prague, Brussels, Ghent, Paris, Porto, Dublin and Vienna. All great experiences!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was the minister who officiated my little sister's wedding "a la Joey" from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. (sans the World War I uniform). It was awesome not only to be there with her on her special day but also to be able to plan a fun speech about her and her husband!
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!
