About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy all the great things that life has to offer!

ABOUT ME

I am an open minded, friendly, funny and easy going person. But, to get to know me a little more, take a look at the references.

PHILOSOPHY

"For what it's worth it's never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit, start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of, and if you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Since I came to CS and until March 2013, I tried to host as much as I could while living in Almada (south bank of Tagus River). I've met such wonderful people who added good things to my life that I would never had the chance to meet if it wasn't CS. On November 2013, I moved to Lisboa city center. Once I'm living on a shared apartment, I'm not able to host but I'm glad to meet you for a coffee/drink or to show the city on weekends if I'm around. I'm glad to do that as much as I can!
