About Me

I am Luís Basch and my biggest dream is to travel the world. “Life is a book, and those who do not travel read only the first page”.

I am 26 years old, born and raised in the beautiful coastal city of Lisbon, Portugal and at the age of 21 I moved to Sofia, Bulgaria to work and to slowly build up and pursue a life of traveling.

I am an animal lover, an extreme sport addict, passionate by music, photography and traveling. I also love learning languages and I have recently started learning my 6th language.

I got bit by the travel bug at the age of 17 when I decided to travel abroad for the first time, and alone! The destination was Switzerland.

Currently I've been to a total of 43 countries and I have been to every country in the European Union.

Next destinations 2021: Turkey, Georgia, Egypt, Romania, Moldova, Transnistria

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is about helping people, being helped and sharing experiences! Not all of us can afford to travel, so couchsurfing makes it possible! Not only that, but it is also a great way to bond with people and make good friends!


My interests range from the most basic things to the most complex ones. I like traveling, both solo and with company, blogging, photography, extreme sports, jamming my guitar, going to the movies, swimming in hot springs, playing videogames, Final Fantasy and Legend of Zelda sagas are my favorite, hitchhiking, organizing couchsurfing events, listening to music, attending concerts and festivals, learning languages, crypto etc

Teach, Learn, Share

I will teach you music, geography, history and any of the languages I speak. I will hopefully learn from you, the same way you can learn from me. I will share with you a good conversation, a tour of the city, a clean towel, my WiFi password and food!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I will offer you great conversations and share some of my best travel stories. I will help you cooking and I will make sure I don't destroy your apartment. I will bring you a souvenir as a symbol of my gratitude.
