About Me


Looking to fulfil the pleasures of life


I am a curious person looking for interesting people and places.



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Started by asking for accommodation in Rio and found a great place/platform to meet nice people with a great sense of community.

I try to meet people who are interested in sharing some experiences together, and strengthen the idea of community and shared economy.


Stayed a few times with couchsurfing hosts and it is an incredible and humbling feeling. I try to give bad some of the love and kindness I got form these people.
