Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love travelling, travellers stories, helping them to enjoy my country (both visiting places and monuments as enjoying food and wines).


When I lived in Portugal, near Lisbon, I was always hosting travellers until I started my Bycicle World Tour.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a very simple, low profile person.

---> MUSIC
I can ear almost anything it goes with my mood.

I can watch "The Sound of Music" as much as "Star Wars"

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- I've cycled alone and full autonomy from Salzburg (Austria) into Passau(Germany) and then all the way along the Danube to Varna (Bulgaria) and flew home from Sofia.
- I've also biked my "Camino to Santiago" from Lisbon to Santiago de Compostela on a recumbent trike
- I've lived for 3 days in a desert island (Portugal)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can help with computers, cooking and whatever is needed

I can learn whatever you like to teach me
