About Me

ABOUT ME

Both my parents are Portuguese but I was born in France, in Clermont-Ferrand. I was raised with the Portuguese culture as well as French and was taught both languages at the same time - which I'm very happy about !
I studied "Applied Languages" in my hometown, lived in Montpellier for 2 years then moved to Valence. It's a small town but has a lot to offer once you know the right places to go.
I'm very curious about life and other cultures (I love learning new languages or at least some words), spontaneous, friendly, caring, honest, thoughtful, loves to have a good laugh, talkative, likes to go out and dance, have friends over for a dinner or a drink.

You Belong in London

A little old fashioned, and a little modern.
A little traditional, and a little bit punk rock.
A unique soul like you needs a city that offers everything.
No wonder you and London will get along so well.

What City Do You Belong In?

PHILOSOPHY

Today is a gift, that's why it's called the present !
If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun !

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Being a good host is very important for me, I love having people around me and make them feel at home. Don't be surprised if you're invited to party with my friends.
I take part and organize some meetings to meet other local couchsurfers to share our experiences and get to know each other.
I also moderate the Valence group.
