About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Cook for the whole world! ☐

ABOUT ME

Hello Everyone!

I'm an open minded guy (or trying to be), an easy going person, who loves outdoors, I like the good things a concrete jungle has and the simple ones that only the real nature can offer!
I like to know new people, new places, new cultures..
Cook is my passion, anything that involves it, I probably would like!

This was the essential basics! If you're not lazy more info about me and what's going on in my life down below.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I always could describe myself, but lately it's being so hard!
A lot of things happened to me in the last months that made me change and I keep changing. Unfortunately some bad things need to happen to make us wake up for life and live!

After somethings that happened in Brazil and an exchange program in California I decided the things that weren't making me happy or weren't fitting in my life anymore, I would change them!

So when I got back to Brazil I announced to my family that I was leaving the Business school to study gastronomy.
Buenos Aires appeared as a good option to make this dream come true.

On my last days in Brazil, I went to live with my brother in Rio to work during the World Cup. Rio, World Cup and couchsurfing together, can u imagine how fun it was? I could meet people from everywhere and I convinced my brother to host some choucsurfers. It was an experience that I can't describe in words.

We hosted basically backpackers and when they started to tell me the things they've done in Brazil, I couldn't believe. I lived in Brazil for 27 years and I don't know half of the things they knew in my own home. It was another wake up call for me.

So finally I leave everything behind and came "naked" to Buenos Aires.
No family, no friends, no spanish, no ideas about the future..

The beginning was really hard, because I was lost and missing Rio.
But then I putted myself together and started to put in practice the things I've learned.

This people I met in Rio opened my eyes to things that I've never realized.
Rio changed me, I used to hate Rio, now is a city that I love.
I learned that I need to see things by myself and then take my own conclusions.
With the backpackers I learned something obvious, I'm not a tree and I don't need to be stuck in only one place.

Now I wanna travel as much as I can, meet more new people, new cultures, new places... I'm feeling more free!

I love the simple things in life and right now I'm putting more value in it.

Well this is the resume about my life since March of 2014

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

When I lived in Rio I became friend of some csers, I went to watch some matches, some parties and joined them for some drinks.
I had the opportunity to host.
I helped the couchsurfers that didn't have a place to stay during the world cu. Some of them had the couch canceled or the host "disappeared".

Right now in Buenos Aires I don't have my own home yet, so I'm going to some CS meetings, I met some Local CSers to talk and walk, I showed the things I known so far to other foreigner CSers.

Here in Baires I had my first experience as a surfer!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I haven't had many experiences so far.

I've tried couchsurfing during my time in USA, but I didn't find any place to stay.

In Rio I joined some CS parties and meetings!
I hosted and helped some ppl that arrived in Rio with no place to stay during the World Cup.

In BsAs I'm trying to experience all CS can offer me.

Interests

One of my biggest interests is cooking, anything that involves it I'll probably gonna love..
I love traveling, outdoor places, meet new people, new cultures, reading, movies, cycling, going out, etc..

I love music, almost all kinds!
Specially Pop, Rock, R&B, brazilian music, etc..

One Amazing Thing I've Done

It's really hard to pick only one!

Teach, Learn, Share

I wanna meet ppl that really understand what CS is!
It's not only a free place to stay, it's about get to know ppl!
I wanna know at least a little bit the person I'm hosting, their history, what they do, etc..
I can learn from them and I hope they can learn a lil bit with me.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I can tell a lot of stories abou the trips I made, the places I lived and for sure cook to you.
