About Me


Travel around Europe...


I'm a very open person, interested about meeting new people and discovering other countries including their cultures. Because a new country is it... a new culture you find out and sometimes you can put yourself in it.
A joker person, but a serious person when I have to be. As a Civil Engineer I've been working for the last years. A country side guy who came from a small village in Minas Gerais/Brazil, but who's been living at BH for more than 10 years now. A french speaker by love and an english speaker by motivation and satisfaction.

That's me!


Difficult question too.
I live my life for make lifes around me better. I try to do my best for that. Sure, I'm not an example, but at least, I try to change myself everyday to be a better person.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


My first experience with CS was when I hosted an American girl at my place. After that, I started going to the meetings of the CS community in Belo Horizonte (BH). In February, I came to France, and my first experience being hosted was in Bruges at Brecht's house. It was great, beside he has an awesome cat, who is his roommate. After that, in Brussels, at Quentin's, Bruno's, Boris's house. It was great too.

But CS is more than just being hosted and hosting. I mean... it's sharing experiences with people you have never seen before, but you are open to see what they have to show us, to share with us about their country, their life. That's the concept of CS for me.


Since I was a kid, I liked to be in a chalenge. Something which was new for me was a very fascinant thing for me. I like be being in different situations that I've never been. Maybe that's why I'm here in CS. Traveling!

Music, Movies & Books

Best movies for me are the ones wich can transmit something good for making us different, for making us better. I think people need to see less movies about fiction, about horror and start watching some good movies, like: Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain; Un long dimanche de fiancelle; Good bye, Lenin!; Everything is illuminated; Big Fish; Paris, je t'aime; Paying it forward; Ensemble, c'est tout; Le pianiste; and some others of the same type.
About musics, I like good music. If the music is good... I'll love it.
I really like reading, but I haven't been reading so much lately, actually not reading litterature books, but reading so much engineering books. Well... I'm reading anyway. But I like Dan Brown, his books are very interesting and smart. My propose is reading all his books soon.
