About Me

Hi there! I'm Julia, born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil. I love traveling, cooking, meeting new people and being able to make a positive impact in the world.

I'm going to Lisbon next semester as an exchange student and plan to travel throughout Europe while I'm there. It's been a dream of mine to backpack full-time, so I hope I'm able to do that after my exchange semester ends :)

Looking forward to meeting new people and giving Couchsurfing a try!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to get to know locals and see cities from their perspective. Couchsurfing also takes a huge part in the most fun and adventurous part of backpacking: trusting others and being open to the unknown - which is what I'm most looking forward to experience!

Music, Movies, and Books

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Performed in a Brazilian street Carnival with friends

(Tried to) hike to the top of an active volcano in the Atacama Desert in Chile - didn't make it because of the altitude but the landscape was incredible!

Went on a solo trip to Rio de Janeiro and paid only 20 cents for the bus ride
