About Me


Explore the world..." every man dies but not every man lives!! "


Recently returned to Porto after some good time traveling and living overseas!!
Porto is the best city where I have ever been ;) If you have the chance don't hesitate!!

By the time I was 19years I did my first trip abroad and it changed everything. Since then I never stopped!!

I have had some experiences living abroad (Australia, Brazil, England, Palestine and Netherlands)...

...and CS has been always a good friend, for both, the places I visit and the places I live.

I´m currently taking some time on my life to travel the world and find my real passion...
...recently I decided to move temporarily to Australia. Just got my Work and Holiday Visa.

I consider myself an easygoing and friendly person who loves to meet different people and learn from different cultures!!

I´m a traveler enthusiast, but I have many other interests, such as sports (mainly outdoors)...running, trekking, trail, biking, group sports ... beach, mountain, healthy and sustainable ways of life, watch movies, read, history, food and LEARN!!
...learn is my only addiction!!

I love to challenge my personal boundaries!!


-Life is made by cycles;
-There's good and bad people everywhere, you just gotta figure it out yourself;
-We shouldn't judge a book by it's cover;
-Life has to be lived, not suffered in a cubicle.
-Money is only in your head. How much you have doesn't mean what you're worth;
- Life is about making an impact, not making an income;
- I miss 100% of the shots I don´t take;
- Life is not about getting and having, is about giving and being;
- The only person I´m destined to be, is the person I decide to become;

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I started using CS attending to local events during my travels. Then I started surfing and hosting. Unfortunately, I have never lived in a place where i could be a host.


So far it´s been awesome...Looking back I can say that CS played a big role on my travel experiences.


Travel, sports, meet new people, learn about and from different cultures, learn about different ways of life, films and books, planning...

I love to spend time with my friends and meeting new people but I also like to have some time for myself...
