About Me

**Fully vaccinated against COVID-19**

CURRENT MISSION

Spreading positive vibrations

ABOUT ME

I'm in a constant improvement process. I've seen many beautiful things, visited beautiful places and met amazing people. All of that (plus the bad things too) have made me who I am, and for that I'm thankful. I simply feel excited about being alive and having a whole day ahead of me. Its always time to learn, to share, to reach goals and start over.

LEBENSLUSTIG. Definetly

PHILOSOPHY

Everything is exactly how it's supposed to be. Nothing is wrong.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I´m willing to meet new people and learn more out of them. I hope they can learn something from me too.
I love sharing. I host and surf.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I´ve surfed several couches when I lived in Munich for the first time (2007). Budapest,Cologne, Amsterdam, Berlin, Florence, Prague, Barcelona and Lisbon. Great experiences, all of them
Then in 2011 during a 4 months backpack in South America I had the opportunity to meet people who opened their homes and hearts to me, and who made my journey unforgettable.
:D

In 2009 I started to go to SP weekly meetings and got to know a lot of cool people. I go out with cs every week.
I've hosted several people in my flat in Sao Paulo, too.
I've hosted bikers in Gotha, Germany and now that I'm living in Munich I'm sure I'll have the chance to host again. If my couch is not available, I'd be glad to take you out for tea (or beer. We are in Germany, afterall).

Interests

MUSIC, Books,Languages, Movies.... I love words (spoken, written, read, sung or whispered...).
Going out at night, traveling (obviously!),getting to know new people and places, or even getting to know something new about something I already know.
I have also found out that I have a deep passion for dancing. I can dance Zouk, Samba-rock, Samba de Gafieira, Forró and Salsa, and am willing to learn anything else.
In 2010 I started my active spiritual journey and that changed my life. I'm now willing to continue discovering myself and work in a way to contribute to the well being of mankind. I've been a Deekshagiver since 2010.

Music, Movies, and Books

Mostly Bossa Nova and Brazilian Popular Music, Samba, Blues, Jazz, Rock.. I´m actually extremely ecletic, but I have my preferences. I sing, mostly Brazilian music. It's in my soul, what can I say?
I´ve read mostly Brazilian Literature, but I have different kinds of interests, and if someome recommends a good book of movie, I´d love to read or watch it.
As for movies... Mostly europeans (Lola rennt and Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei, love them!), and Brazilian movies like Cidade de Deus (city of God),
Meu tio matou um cara, Bicho de sete cabecas, Tropa de Elite, etc...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been thorough several amazing moments in my life. One that's CS-related was: Getting together with a French cs, his sister and my dad at my apartment in São Paulo and during one evening shared the beauty of Brazilian and French music.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach English, German and Portuguese (and one day, I hope, Chinese).
Teaching how to dance the samba would be a fun experience, since I´m not the best samba dancer you´ll meet (even if you never come to Brazil) =P

What I Can Share with Hosts

Good talks and stories, cooking, Brazilian music.
