About Me

**We're more than fully (7 doses) covid vaccinated**

We're Henrique and Harry, daddy and son who just love meeting new people and travel a lot.

Harry is american and Henrique Spanish (and Brazilian), so we’ve got a kind of passports salad.

If you send us a request, we always respond back to you. It’s very rude for you not to respond back, it’s fine if you have already found a host, please say so.

One of the best things about CS is when I can host you and in the future you host me (or the other way around), so remember, if I host you, I'll probably pay you a visit in a near future, be prepared to host me some day of your life. Also, if you host me, I expect one day you come to Brasilia. CS is about making friends.

My contacts:
-Telegram @hvcaldas
-iMessage hvcaldas@icloud.com
But don't request to surf my couch through those messengers, let's keep it here. Use it only if I already accepted your request to make it easy set up details or if you just wanna chat about anything else like tarantulas sexual life.

Some CSers I already made that "combo" (host and surf):

Marat - Rio/Santiago https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/maratello
Daniel - Rio/Waco https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/danielbutsko
Taner - Brasília/Frankfurt (2x) https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/sirkinley
Antonio - Brasília/Milan https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/miccio
Leon - Brasilia/Amsterdan https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/leonp1987
Paolo - Brasilia/London https://www.couchsurfing.com/users/1708608
Sareen - Brasília/Denver https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/travelingmoxy
Waleed - Brasília/Toronto https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/waleedahmed2
Steven - Brasília/Orlando https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/bohoindustries

Some CSers who hosted me more than once:

Jorge (great friend) - Mendoza https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/polifemocia
Matthew - Boston and Seattle - https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/mcaltman
Bob and Chris - Greer SC - https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/beatdrummer

Recently, as this site has become a mass tool, there is an invasion of rude, selfish people who use cs only to save money or for personal interest and who treat their hosts as if they were "disposable people" they can disrespect. So i prefer to host generous people who gave something back to the community by hosting others in their homes too. If you did not host anyone recently but you are a nice person you can still ask me for a couch, but i will be selective.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

CS is already part of my life. I don't want to provide just a free place to stay, I want to know you, your culture, go out, chat a lot and maybe in 10 year we can say we met at CS and became friends.

One of the most common sentences used to describe themselves on cs is "i really love to travel, see new places, meet new people!!".
This statement sounds more or less like "i like to have sex". For sure ther are few people that do not like it, but the vast majority (something near the 99.999%) of human beings enjoy it a lot. And so do we, if we didn't love traveling and seeing new places, we wouldn't be on CS for so long.
