About Me

I am a Brazilian guy, originally from Rio, living in The Netherlands.

I love to meet new people and, of course, traveling. That's why I enjoy so much the ideals of this group. Usually I am working and studying but I can show some interesting places to you, I like both cultural places and enjoy the night life. Actually I enjoy very much the night life! Eindhoven is a lively city and I can show you some nice places.

In case I am surfing with you I would love to go to local concerts that you might know in your town :) Good music (I am pretty open) plays a good role in my life.

If you have any more doubts you can read my references and send me a message! :)

I am thanks to always learn the good thing from others and always be prepared to help the others. "The natural law of the Meetings" It is part of an amazing song called "Mistério do Planeta". If you don´t know it, look it up!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I am ready to help people from any part of the world to know better my city and maybe available a place to stay some days.In 2010 I started a personal project. To know as much as I can from my country, visiting at least one main city from our 27 states... And since that I've been making progress with CS help.

I had to temporarily interrupt the previous project due to my move to Europe, but then I would like to start another one, that's still far from be completed... but that means a lot nice things to be explored in a near future :)

After had my first CS hosting experience, I could notice that it was only a start and I was glad to start with a very sympathy and friendly person. After that, I only had very friendly and nice guests.

Surfing or just "coffee or a drink", were such amazing experiences! Something that you only feel when being part of couch surfing, lots of interesting histories from people from all over the world, some unforgettable... and of course knowing the city with different eyes than a traditional tourist have.

Indeed, each day I get more involved here...

Interests

Know different people from any part of the world. Learn from it and share a bit of my culture.

Music, Movies & Books

Talking about music...
I don’t know how to describe one music style but I like Rock (many variations of that), Popular Brazilian Music (MPB and your variations), Samba, many others Brazilian Musician not so popular, a part of electronic music, Reagee and Forró (typically Brazilian style that we dance in pairs).
Books and Movies related with science fiction and police are the best. Woody Allen, Almodovar... & Sherlock Holmes, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Know Couch Surfing Project!
And some things like, travel more than 3 thousand kilometers to get in a Island in Pará state and pass NYE there. Jumped 10m down into a natural pool in a paradise place called "Sana" close to Rio de Janeiro.
Hitchhiking during my trip in January 2011.
Bolivia is the most beautiful country I´ve been and Parque Tayrona(Colombia) has the most beautiful beaches, including an amazing nudists warm weather beach :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share about my country culture and want to learn even more different languages. I can teach how to prepare a good Caipirinha and a simple Brazilian meal :)

Also hear from you about your culture. It can be music, philosophy, religious (I am not religious guy but I am curious!), foods, drinks...
