About Me


Discover South and Central America


Portuguese guy living in Quito and looking to establish in Latin America.

I love to go on a long trip, meet new cultures, and fellow travellers from all over the world. An interesting conversation and a bottle of wine are synonyms of an evening well spent.

The most beautiful thing in the world? Diversity! I can't stop to be amazed with the variety of cultures, colours and tastes there are. It's beautiful!

I don't get along with narrow-minded people and prejudice. Neither with those whose goal in life is to get rich and to have this and that.

Ella estaba en el horizonte.
Me acerco dos pasos,
ella se aleja dos pasos.
Camino dos pasos y
el horizonte se corre
diez pasos más allá¡.

Por mucho que yo camine,
nunca la alcanzaré.
¿Para que sirve la utopia?
Para eso sirve: para caminar.

Eduardo Galeano

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By trying to host people from all around the world, learn from their experience and share mine.


I've been surfing around South America for the past few months and it has been great!

Hope to start hosting soon in Quito!


Travelling, sports, people, sustainability, politics, activism, pachamama, anticapitalism, biodiversity, cooperation...Fortunately there are so many interesting things in this world that I could go on with the list forever!

Music, Movies, and Books

Everything! As long as they make me think! However, if I had to pick a book or song, they'll be written and sang in portuguese! As for a movie, italian all the way xDSome of my favourite authors: Saramago, Mia Couto, Luis Sepúlveda, Eduardo Galeano, John Pilger, Italo CalvinoSome of my favourite musicians: Zeca Afonso, Oquestrada, Ornatos Violeta, Jovanotti, Amália, Fabrizio de André, Mayra AndradeSome of my favourite Movies: Ladri di Biciclette; Si puó Fare; Ieri, Oggi, Domani; I soliti Ignoti

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Trekking for 5 days in Apolobamba (Bolivia), amongst thousands of alpacas and crossing stunning valleys. Oh, and almost without seeing a human being!

I can teach Portuguese and maybe some Italian. I might be able to explain some weird physics and biology concepts as well xD
