About Me


Studying in Santa Maria and going very often to Porto Alegre to visit my family, this is how i've been living these last years, so i could host you in any of these cities. A little bit about me is that I am a very easy going person who likes to chat, to cook, to read, to go out and to show the city around. I'm very, very curious about different cultures, differents way of living, perspectives and more than that i love it when we are able to share it. I just came back from a one-year-exchange program in Spain, where i was able to have this amazing contact with so many different people through couchsurfing and i'd love to keep it in Brazil.


I think life is about experiences, tries, sharing...I think life is like a brick wall, that you construct with what you've been getting and that makes you unique.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I signed up in couchsurf since i don't remember when but i have never used it. Now, it's been a few months, i decided to give it a try and it has been a good experience so far. My first experience was surfing, and now i've been hosting people and if it's not possible to host just hanging out or walking people around the city. The important thing it's to (try) particiate somehow.


My experience with couchsurf has been very positive, sometimes just fine and sometimes just awesome, so far i haven't had any experience that i would consider negative. You really need to get the spirit of how couchsurf works - or maybe how it should work. Once you've surfed, once you've been desperate and sent 100 CS requests to find a home in the next city you are going and wasn't expecting to go and once you hosted people, you put yourself in someone else's shoes, you know how things work. With a little bit of experience you'll get it. The type of CS i most like is when there's a connection between people. We have to leave impressions on each other's life.


Since i'm in Europe, right now and the distances to travel seem to be shorter and with the low-cost flights, makes everything easy to travel. Traveling is what i enjoy most to do in my free time, specially getting to know the locals real culture, and interesting people as well.

Teach, Learn, Share

People get really grateful when they are being hosted (generally)and say: "I hope one day i'll be able to retribute everything you did to me". Just do it next time you host someone, be as nice: the thing is about making a big chain, and pass it away...
