About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Eat, meet, dance, walk, breathe, listen, understand and live every different culture.

ABOUT ME

My wanderlust started about 5 years ago. I decided to go on a trip to Brasil to work with children at a small school, once I was there I decided the country and its people were too amazing for me to leave too soon and ended up staying for far longer than expected. Ever since I just NEED to go out there and explore, get to meet new approaches to life, different people, see some amazing landscapes! I've visited now around 25 countries of South America, Europe and Middle East and I'm eager to go for more! Traveling's just my passion. I still gotta find a one single place that I can call a home.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I first met couchsurfing some five years ago during a jazz festival in Brazil and ever since I've been an active user. I've been hosted some 10 times in different countries and cities, I've hosted just one single time when I lived in France and I've participated in CS meetings in Turkey and France.

Interests

I really enjoy traveling, I find it the greatest pleasure on earth.

I love astrophysics. I'm very curious about constellations, the way the universe works and all of the coincidences that brough us, me and you to this exact moment.

I enjoy simple things such as a nice green field with a good company, the simpler, the nicer it gets. Not too much into fancy or very technological stuff.

Music, Movies & Books

I enjoy very different kinds of music and I've tried to play several instruments -gotta say I'm pretty bad at making music myself-. Mainly soft music like deep house or what people call post-rock, music that I can dance to, that transports me to other places.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Seeing people's smiles at night on the bus, going back home from their jobs, hoping for a better tomorrow for them and their families, that's the most amazing moment everyday.

*Still waiting to see the Aurora, that'll be the moooost amazing thing for me!

Teach, Learn, Share

Learning is another word for describing traveling for me. Everywhere we go is like a book waiting to be read.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Friendship, smiles, some good stories, some bottles of wine!
