About Me

Hey hosts and surfers, what's up? 🤙

I'm Leandro (@leandrof87), born and raised on the São Paulo/Brazil's suburbs and, since January 1st, 2021, my life is being totally remodeled!

I left behind a few material possessions that I had, I stopped having the daily contact with my family and friends and I started a journey through this world, without a defined itinerary and without a specific date to return to Brazil.

With no money in my pocket, I WANT (AND NEED!) TO WORK HARD throughout my journey, whether to earn some money or in exchange for accommodation, food and, of course, exchanging experiences with other travelers through the Workaway community. And everything is being done with just a backpack on my back, supporting only the weight of the few things I can carry.

And yes, this is a GREAT LIFE PROJECT! Because it's so imposing and transformative, I imagined it would never get off the ground. Then, for many, many years, he was forgotten inside a drawer of my past. But, since 2017, after several changes in my mentality and in ways of seeing the world, the project was being developed in a way that it was possible to make it a reality in the beginning of this year.

The purpose of this trip has a main focus, which is: LIVING EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCES! In order to enjoy this new phase as intensely as possible, in 2020, I quit my last formal job, starting to dedicate myself exclusively to the jobs I'm performing along the road.

I opened a YOUTUBE CHANNEL to record and share the events of my life while traveling. The videos are being recorded and edited by me. Some of them are already posted, including what I tell my story and show some parts of my preparation before leaving Brazil.

In parallel, I'm also producing a PODCAST, called: “O QUE VI POR AÍ” (which means: "WHAT I SAW AROUND THERE"). In all the episodes, I tell about the backstage of the trip, while I also address several other random subjects.

I also started my WRITER'S CAREER by publishing my FIRST BOOK 100% independently. It's called: “ANTES DE MAIS NADA” (which means: "FIRST OF ALL"), and in it, I narrate several events in my life even from a distant time when I didn't even imagine that I would be able to put this project on course, until my last day on Brazilian soil, in December 31, 2020. Next, I'll continue to write and publish more books, however, already fully focused on reporting my experiences during that expedition.

Maybe, I'm not the most talented guy in the world, but I'm certainly the most dedicated, committed and disciplined guy you've ever seen! I'm absolutely willing to LEARN and, if possible, also teach something from the little I know. I'm currently fluent in Portuguese; I have a good proficiency of Spanish and I'm learning English. I worked for several years in the financial, legal and administrative areas. I have also worked with arts in general, playing bass in a band, or as a DJ, music producer, event producer and photographer. I'm now looking for workexchange opportunities in these areas or in entirely different roles. I'M FULLY OPEN TO NEW AND ENRICHING EXPERIENCES!

I chose Colombia as my first destination and, on 01/01/21, I landed in the capital, Bogotá, where I stayed for 2 weeks. So, I started this new career and a new cycle of my brief existence. Currently, I'm living in Esbjerg with a Couchsurfing host, while I do my personal work of recording and editing videos.

I look forward to meeting you soon, so that we can experience many good things together!

Below, I leave you with the link to access my Linktree page, where you can find and know EVERYTHING that I'm producing at this moment. From now, I thank you for your attention, wishing you much peace, love, joy and success.

And then I go, hanging around to see that I find myself ... 🌎 ...

LET'S GO AHEAD, ALWAYS ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm the most eclectic guy you'll ever meet in your entire life! I love grunge and metal songs but, at the same, time, I love reggae, hip-hop, electro, and forró songs (a tipical and amazing brazilian music genre). I love my own book, called: "ANTES DE MAIS NADA", which means: "FIRST OF ALL".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I climbed the Nevado de El Cocuy in Colombia. There were like 5000 meters!
