About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live and love! =)

ABOUT US

When we first heard about couchsurfing and created our profile we were about to start a 2 and a half years trip around the world and this was our description of ourselves:

"We are a couple trying to discover ourselves. We took 2 and a half years to travel and think about who we are and what we want. We have our studies in Brazil and had everything ready to start a career, but why do what "they" want us to do without thinking about what we want? So that`s a little bit about what we are doing now. Furthermore, we are educated, polite and respectful people who would love to share experiences and get to know other cultures".

We left the description above because it just didn't stop being true. We are still trying to discover ourselves, who we are and what we want and we actually have been doing it, a little bit every day. Definitely doing what we want to do...

PHILOSOPHY

To live our way. Share love, spread peace and, most important, respect all around us.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We surfed a lot, met incredible people all around the world. We had very unique experiences while doing it, what is even hard to describe.
It's really great to be back home and still able to meet all this incredible people from all over the would. We love hosting and really enjoy it!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couchsurfing made possible for travelers to get closer to different cultures and we believe this is priceless. The more we use it, the more we love the opportunity this website created.

Interests

We like nature, outside adventures, books, movies, getting to know other cultures and sharing experiences.
We love cooking, some days breakfast, lunch and dinner :) , talking, having a drink or even going out to a pub or so. But you would have a hard time dragging us into a night club.

Music, Movies & Books

We are quite diverse on this topic.
Mostly we enjoy sitting down to relax and watch a good movie. It doesn't matter whether it :makes us laugh or cry.
Some science fiction, but that`s more Luisa`s stuff.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

We have seen most of the beautiful beaches in the island we live in. We have been to Rio de Janeiro, and as they say "ït's still pretty".
Out of Brazil, we have seen and lived in a great little town called Leavenworth, WA, USA. We have seen the Mt. McKinley/Denali in a clear day in Alaska. We have lived in Queenstown, NZ, and enjoyed the Lake Wakatipu's stunning blue color. We tried the real and incredible Asian food. Nothing too crazy! =)

Teach, Learn, Share

We know a little bit about brazilian culture, food and music (of course). We also would love to hear about this topics from around the world.

A nice, clean, simple though, place where travelers can feel good to go out and explore the city or just relax...
