About Me


Working in Budapest


The uncertainty is my attitude facing my life. I like to explore all the corners and places and find where I can fell good. I'm scared to establish and later discover I could have done a plenty of other things and visited other nice places. I love meeting new people and new cultures and ways of living.


Sorry for the cliché: "Living one day at the time". I want to follow this way of living but is to difficult not thinking in the future....I'll do my best!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Showing and sharing nice places and moments. Meet travelers, world movers, accomodating them. Visit places and having always a smile and a warm couch where I can rest.




Music (Recorder and Flute player).
Hanging out in the cities, discovering new places, knowing new and nice people.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: All kinds of music depending on the situation. Bach is a big part of my inspiration. Amália Rodrigues, Mariza and Camané, Billy Holiday, John Coltrane, Tom Waits, Paulo Conte, Jorge Palma, Sérgio Godinho, Zeca Afonso, Tom Jobim, Chico Buarque, Elis Regina, Ojos de Brujo, Chambao, El Bicho, Alaska, The Cure, Kusturica, Macaco, Radio Tarifa, Chet Baker and Paco de Lucia are just an example of my musical spectrum. Tony Carreira is also a good option regarding a good folk party :P.

Movies: Almodóvar is my favourite director and I like most of his work. Then I can choose two examples of films that were somehow important for me: Dead Poets Society and The Silence of the Lambs.

Books: Milan Kundera, J.J.Rosseaux, Eça de Queiroz, Hemingway, Steinbeck, Jorge Amado.
