About Me


To meet people, places and cultures


My name is Lidiane, but lots of people calls me Malu. I used to be an environmental lawyer. Nowadays, I am doing a Phd in Sociology. My favorite thing in this life is to travel! I love to meet new people, new cities and different cultures.


Happiness now, tomorrow and after tomorrow :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I know couchsurfing since 2008.
I went to Portugal in march 2008 with 4 friends. We stayed with a very nice guy in Olhão, Algarve and in a very special house in Evora. The experiences were better than we could ever had imagined.


Through this program I have had opportunities to visit amazing places in Europe. I surfed in several cities in Portugal and Spain, Netherlands, Austria, Italy, UK, France and Russia.
I also met lots of nice people that hosted me, surfed in my place in Madrid, Coimbra, Lisboa or Linz (where I have lived in the last years), or just met me for a coffee or for a walk around their cities.
