About Me




I'm the least recommended person to talk about myself


I wouldn't say this is my personal philosophy, it's just that I really like this quotation from Trainspotting and didn't think of anything better I could put here.

"Choose life.
Choose a job.
Choose a career.
Choose a family.
Choose a fucking big television.
Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers.
Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance.
Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments.
Choose a starter home.
Choose your friends.
Choose leisurewear and matching luggage.
Choose a three-piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics.
Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning.
Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth.
Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrasment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourself.
Choose your future.
Choose life.
But why would I want to do a thing like that?
I chose not to choose life..
I chose something else.
And the reasons?
There are no reasons."

You are what you choose to be.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting, surfing and spreading the word.


Before getting to know CS, I have surfed a few couches in France & Italy. Then, when I got back to Rio, signed up and started hosting. For the past few months, surfed some couches, hammocks and matresses in Central America and 'hosted' people in my tent.


Really enjoy anything outdoors camping, trekking, rock climbing, diving...

Teach, Learn, Share

Can teach you how to cook crappy food, speak portuguese or french, make caipirinha...
Would love to learn how to cook tasty food, speak decent spanish and many other things.

But I think we can teach and learn much more than that
