About Me

Please write in your request why you want to meet me. I decline copy paste requests. Guys and couples also welcome.

My couch in Edinburgh. I share a flat with Italian/Brazilian Mauricio. We both have our own room and there is a nice cosy living room. We have a conformable steady 2 person raised airbed for our guests.

Mauricio does not have a lot of CS experience yet and he likes to have references and more experience, so please don't hold back in writing him a nice personal request: https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/mtfaoro .

I started hosting in Rotterdam in 2009. After hosting more than a hundred people it was time to discover! My first Couch Surfing trip was mainly in Spain. 132 days of Couch surfing in a row; working as programmer and traveling at the same time with Couch Surfers. 45 hosts and 25 different cities. After that, stranded in Barcelona for 2,5 years where I met the love of my love. She made me recently move to Scotland :-)

Couch surfing changed my life. I had the greatest times with many different experiences (hosting and surfing). So give me a good reason why you want to meet me! All general information about your trip in not so very interesting for a host that doesn't know you yet.


Curious, energetic, enthusiastic, open-minded, sensitive and outgoing person. Like all kinds of (Erasmus) parties, have friends around me, hug, dance, drive motor and play music instruments, enjoy to live like a student! (and the drinks :P ) Guess other people describe me the best, so just read my references.


May 2016 - Miami, Medellin, Bogota & Rio de Janeiro - My introduction to Latin America - I expect the feeling of the sun lovin people in Miami, curious about Colombia and finally Ill and the Journey in dancing nation Brasil!

Jan 2016 - Road trip over France, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Austria and Germany

My new road trip starts in Barcelona. That's where I stayed for a while. I want to discover Milan, Ljubljana, Zagreb, Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna. After that I wanna stay a bit at a winter sport resort in Austria to go for some skiing!

Starting Dec 2012 - my France-Spain road trip!
He viajado por mucho tiempo. He ido de ciudad en ciudad. Trabajo mientras viajo porque soy programador y sólo necesito internet para trabajar.
(yes I already learned some Spanish!! )

While Im traveling I would like a combination, I need to work at office hours.. around it I would love to see the city. A drink and dance sometime and in the weekends :-) For work I need a small desk or table and an internet connection. It would be great if someone can help me with that!
Road trip Europe: Rotterdam - Brugge - Paris - Rennes - Bordeaux - San Sebastian - Bilbao - Madrid - Salamanca - Porto - Lisboa - Gran Canaria - Sevilla - Cadiz - Jerez - El Puerto - Gibraltar - Malaga - Córdoba - Granada - Valencia - Zaragoza - Reus - Tarragona - Barcelona where I have a room for a while, buutttt,... to be continued...


I really try to explore everything what's in my scope and capabilities. Being happy and proud of what you like to do is more important than what other think. Always be ownest and do what you like to do, that will give the best result in the end! Greed is bad, you can never buy love with money (and I'm happy about that! )

23-11-2012 while im traveling the challenge is to enjoy life as much as possible. If I succeed doing my work, enjoy life and make some other people happy while Im traveling.. I wont return.. Or get stuck in the city I enjoy the most.. ** AMBIENT SONG STARTS IN *** "So, lets spread my wings and discover the world!" *** OUCH! *** seems like I can't fly...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At first hand, I like to meet other people and help them with a place to sleep. At the other hand, I'm thinking about a challenge. Explore the world (starting in Europe) without taking any day off. There is one very big advantage about having an own company, that's the possibility of travelling.
At the moment I'm thinking about combining couch surfing, viewing cities, having greate times and party-ing with working. There are some problems to solve, but the first thing what's necessary is a internet connection and a desk to work at daytime. Please send me a message if you can and like to help me with this new age ambition!


Can write books and books and books about all the nice people I hosted and met during traveling :) It's so nice to meet all those different people :) My experience is from sporting together, crazy electro parties, just chilling, relaxing and even going with my host to a "rainbow bar" and just 2 weeks before I was going to a musk... Couch surfing is about everything.. Experiences are there.. Just grab them and enjoy! Couch Surfing <3

Hosted for years.. Lost count but, Im sure that it will be more than a hundred people. Also I surfed 132 days in a row, 45 hosts, 25 cities and thousands of kilometers by car through Belgium, France, Potugal and Spain. Went for ski holiday with couch surfing and I visited many other cities in other countries.
