Camouflaging in Porto
I'm staying in Porto just for a month until the start of August. I'm currently studying Portuguese, which I love. I'd like to find lusophone people in the city in order to have a chat (and many laughs) in Portuguese. :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
At the moment I'm living in Nantes (France) for my master and I do not have a couch to offer. But, starting from this summer, I'll be able to offer a couch in Padova.
I couchsurfed during my on-the-road trip in Portugal. I'm so glad I did! I had the chance to meet a lot of people and to experience the real portuguese way of life. I coudn't find a better way for travelling :)
I love baking; I always think about some new treat to cook and share with my friends. I love to blog my creations with my photos of them.
Food photography is a great passion of mine.
I love literature. I'd spend lot of time reading and listening to good music.
I love to organize my travels too; I often think about a new place to visit and I love planning what I'd see or how I'd move, even in an only ipothetical way. Perhaps I have a "travel agent" disposition?
I love the old Italian films. Sometimes, I would watch two or three movies in a day. Old cinemas are among my favourite places in the world.
I love languages. Above all, the romance languages. I am not as good as I would in English. I handle French quite well. I studied some Spanish. I only know a few words in Portuguese, thanks to a beautiful couchsurfer traver, although I'd be really happy to learn it better with a specific language course in Portugal, in the future - why not?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
In San Sebastian bank I've seen the most amazing and endless sunset of my life.
Once, a man stole my backpack. I weeped so pathetically that he gave it back to me.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm always glad to bake some treat for the people who host me... Or also to teach to bake.
I can be useful if you want to learn Italian and French.
