About Me


Meet locals


Friendly and easy. I really enjoy to meet locals and runaway from the every day tourism. I prefer to stroll around with no direction.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted several people from both CS and hospitality club when i lived in France. None in Belo Horizonte - not a touristic focus when someone visits Brasil.


In Stockholm, i stayed with this great guy, Johan, and it was awesome to follow his tips.
I hosted Desanka (from Macedonia), Soon Yo (from Korea) and Rodrigo (from Brasil). Nice memory of each one of them.

Currently reading Saul Bellow`s Herzog.
Many things on my Ipod, but listening a lot of Sibelius, Elliott Smith, Tindersticks, Fleet Foxes, Wilco, Toro y Moi, Mogwai and Teenage Fanclub
