About Me

CURRENT MISSION

meeting people, discovering things, keeping on cycling

ABOUT ME

Vegan, cycling lover, environmental engineer turned business analyst. Rational but indecisive.

PHILOSOPHY

perhaps to gather the most and as many, diverse and memorable experiences as possible, or to enjoy to the fullest my own (and the world's) possibilites. however, to quote Louis CK, "I have a lot of beliefs, and I live by none of them", so.. yeah.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've hosted a couple of people, participate in the Language Exchanges and in some activities, and am always up for showing people around Lisboa.

ALSO I made a small map of Lisboa attractions, check it and comment if you want: https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=201116961555277537910.0004c6891d6fdeb45ff07&msa=0 And if you want to know about veg*an places to eat, Lisboa or elsewhere, check out Happycow: http://www.happycow.net/europe/portugal/lisbon/ Also something important: from October to February, it rains 541 mm in Lisboa -- for comparison, it rains 591 mm in London... the whole year. So, if you come around that time, prepare to get rained on.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Surfed and hosted a bit, met a bunch of people, went to several events.

Interests

cycling, veganism, music

Music, Movies & Books

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I climbed to the highest point of Portugal on my bicycle in the hours before dawn. Also, I got a text published in a newspaper: http://edussincrasias.wordpress.com/2013/01/22/pausa/

Teach, Learn, Share

I can try teaching you about cycling, bike touring or the languages I know. Also, a lot of useless random stuff I know from reading wikipedia too much. teach me.. Deutsch, vielleicht? es gefällt mir sehr. or whatever you want, I'm sure I have things to learn from everyone.
