About Me

Originally from Portugal. Spent the last year working in Iceland, going on a trip around the world for the next year :) In Malaysia right now!

What uuup! I started a big adventure/life experience in November 2016, leaving Portugal to southern Argentina with no plan, only a big desire to see places I've always (or never) dreamed of and meeting beautiful people everyday :)

Did some travelling in Africa, South and North America, Europe, Australia, Asia, Central America. Hoping to keep on traveling all over the world now :) Europe at the moment!!
Studied Hotel Management, love to travel and meet new people. Love animals and the outdoors, especially beach and the ocean :)

I've worked abroad and in Portugal, now following a new challenge, at personal and professional level: work and travel.

I'm a people's person and always open to new experiences! Hope to be shown the best of each place I visit by my hosts, I will give you the best of me in return: laughter, cooking, sharing, talking, hanging out, partying :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

You don't get to really know a place unless you do it with the locals.

Trying to avoid the standard mass hospitality places in order to get a real perspective from each city I visit.

Meeting new people is the best part of the experience. I love the concept of generosity!


Love history and cultural spots, as well as the outdoors, nature and animals!

I'm into volunteering and service in general (hospitality) and I'm a real peoples person
