About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I believe my current mission in life is to fully and entirely make the best of it :)

ABOUT ME

I am passionate about nature, culture and traveling, and I find amazing how sometimes we can learn with the smallest things that surround us. Besides all, I consider myself a calm, easygoing and positive person, and currently find myself pursuing self knowledge. I am also going through a vegan experience, and traveling as a way to learn more about permaculture and agroecology.

PHILOSOPHY

I have chosen to live considering that life shouldn't be taken so seriously. This is one of the reasons why I joined CS, in order to share and enlarge my personal experiences while I feel so small surrounded by so many amazing people and so many incredible places around the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Have surfed across some couches in Europe, and it has been a great experience. Have also had some surfers while I was living in Liverpool, UK, and had nothing but great experiences and good memories to be shared.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I find the idea behind CS extraordinary, have met great people and expect to have new experiences.

Interests

I am interested in having new, unexpected and unplanned experiences. I like to feel what surrounds me, to dance and sing according to what I feel from the place I am and the people I am with.

  • writing
  • singing
  • dancing

Music, Movies, and Books

- Books about social issues, society's power, political and environmental views of the world (Eduardo Galeano, Fritjof Capra, Rousseau...), and also romances and fiction (Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Aldous Huxley, George Orwell, Milan Kundera).
- Pretty much enjoy most of music styles, and feel myself open to discover and explore different rhythms :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have been backpacking alone for a while, across Europe, and again through Brazil (hitchiking and also in a kombi), which have both been amazing experiences, and showed me, among so many things, how the simplest experiences can definitely be amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I believe that every people's meeting can turn into learning for both, if they are open to it. Shared impressions, experiences... it can all be really powerful in order to be closer and closer to all the beauty that surronds us in the world.
