About Me


To roam the world, as far my legs can carry me!


In consequence of being constantly travelling and living in the most different places, I don´t consider myself french, spanish, brazilian, etc or belonging to any nationality anymore. I´ve learned to detach myself and see the world without stereotypes or prejudices.

I'm also an easy going, calm, nice, polite and cheerful person. Always doing my best to be as kind and helpful as possible with any person or host I might find during my travels.


Everyone has a story or experience to share, so I'll try to gather as many as I can, while also sharing and living my new experiences travelling!

One project that really touched me was surely "7 billion others" by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, which confirmed what I've already suspected:

While we might be different and far from each other, we certainly all love, fear, laugh, cry, bleed, dream and strive for the same things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I intend to travel A LOT in the next years, so meanwhile I'm trying to participate as much as possible in the Couchsurfing community and meet a lot of persons and contacts to share experiences! Also, as a surfer, I always respect any hosts privacy and even try to help them with some tasks (Doing the dishes, cleaning the room, etc.) :)


It has been great up until now! I've been able to meet tons of interesting people and share new experiences I wouldn't have otherwise.
Whether it was surfing, hosting or participating in CS meetings, I only had great moments so far!


My main interest right now, is saving as much money, resources and information to plan an never ending travel around the world, by any means necessary.

After I´ve set foot on the road, I intend to discover amazing places and the most interesting persons while I wander around with my backpack without any specific destination.

Also, any tips or experience to share on the subject are more than welcome! ;)

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a huge Ghibli and Miyazaki fan. I also enjoy all kinds of movies and music but have a preference for instrumental and jazz. I´m also (slowly) learning to play the diatonic harmonica.
And for the books, you will always find one in my travel backpack.
For any more details about myself, I guess the best would probably be to check me on Facebook.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have already done a bunch of amazing things in my life and been to many places until now, but nothing compares with what I am about to do in the years to come!

Teach, Learn, Share

I used to teach a little bit of French during my free time, but lately I have been reaaaally busy! Working on the tourism sector is no joke! ;(

Note that I'm also willing to learn ANYTHING you might want to teach or share with me, no matter if it is an instrument, a new recipe, etc.
