About Me


Make even more friends in this pale blue dot we call Earth ;-)


I`m easygoing, talkative and creative, always in the mood for a nice chitchat. I don`t support any particular religion, creed or party. I`m in favor of diversity and I just love meeting new places and people.I was born in Rio but I have lived in Rio, Fortaleza, Baltimore (USA) and Brasília.

By the way, I have a degree in History!

*I'm in Fortaleza right now.


I`m an agnostic, although I like reading about buddism and meditation.

I believe in freedom of expression, so I`m really honest and straightforward.

Some quotes I like the most:

"Where there's a wish there's a way"

"People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily"

"Not all those who wander are lost"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I want to help people traveling so they won`t spend too much and give tips as much as I can so they'll enjoy the most of it! Hope to get feedback.

*You can invite me over for a coffee or a drink, I'd like that! =)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cambridge is the most amazing city I`ve been to when traveling abroad. I strongly recommend going there if you like multicultural environmentes, parks, polite, helpful and friendly people. It`s heaven on Earth, seriously.

I`ll live there eventually for sure!


I've spent a whole year as my "gap year" in Rio. That was one of my greatest experiences and I've learned many things that year. I decided to to spend this year in Rio rather than traveling around.


Teach, Learn, Share

I`ll share 3 websites that might help you when traveling around.1- (free tour in 12 cities across Europe and Israel - just check the date and hour, get there and enjoy your time)2- (best site for classifieds ever! If you`re looking for something, go there and you`ll find. Job, apartments, relationship, donating... you can also make an add there, really handy!)3- (A nice guide of the main urban cities. Check it out for some tips.)

What I Can Share with Hosts

1- We can talk a lot about trips! ( A LOT )

2- We can hang out.

3- We can play board game!! ( I love that )

I always like to do something with the host if he/she has the time and interest,
