About Me


My current mission in life is to develop, expand, create and eat lots of tasty food!


I am friendly and caring, love having fun, eating lots of tasty food and sunshine! My current passion is capoeira and I want to go to Brazil to do environmental volunteering... I am of few words, so this may have to do for now!


Live and let be. Be happy without intruding on other people's space, and give as much as possible without taking away too much from yourself!
Also: will try anything once. Curious.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have been to squats in my youth, but I'm not sure this counts... ;) I am new to CS


capoeira, swimming, running, food, wine, beer, (...the lot!), dance, theatre, beach!, DIY, arts and crafts, learning new languages, art nouveau (Muhca), environmental volunteering though I am volunteering as first aider with the red cross right now!
Love is full of weird and wonderful things and the less known they are the more interesting they become.

Music, Movies, and Books

have read a lot of Alexander McCall Smith, Kundera, Paolo Coehlo but I read anything that is given to me: I exchange books because I think they should all shuffle once in a while!
Music.. where do I start! Bossa Nova, Kusturiza, The Cure, Metronomy, Guns n' Roses... pretty much all music, seriously.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Helping people who are going through trouble feels pretty amazing, changing myself (very hard, I tell you..), capoeira Batizado was amazing! Some starry nights are absolutely amazing too. Everything and anyone can be amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm sure I must have some skills to teach... (decent) cooking and knitting spring to mind.
Would like to learn everything, with no discrimination. But I must learn how to play music and Portuguese!
