Currently travelling, probably will be back on May 2018.
If you need some help in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Campos dos Goytacazes (!?!) and Paris, please write me :)
To travel, to know, to experience
I love to watch movies (when possible in movie theaters), and listening to music, and then doing lists of the best movies and musics. Also I'm very keen on sports, even if I just started to practice more or less seriously one year ago. I'm always trying to study about all of that and finding an unique view. also trying to learn how to photograph properly...
Even if i seem to be a little shy at first, when i meet someone (after 1 minute or 1 month), i open up myself a lot. I really love traveling and meeting new people and new places.
While I lived in France I've met a lot of Europe, now exploring new parts. Next goal, Oceania! Who knows in the future a life awaits in Thailand or Japan?
I go with the flow... going to places the time and life takes me, even if it means to stand or go back (but never really back) and always reminding myself (and others if possible) that different people have different ways of thinking, so we should respect, understand and accept them.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm always talking about CS to everyone i know, and since i'm always sharing an apartment or studio with someone, working hard on convincing them to accept the hosting. It takes a while, but always worked. I'm always trying to travel and meet new CS friends, and happily welcoming members into my home, what is not always easy because I usually share places.
Because of Couchsurfing i was able to meet Cyprus and fall in love with this beautiful country. I had wonderful experiences, meet wonderful people and a completely different country in some aspects to the ones i met before (south america, west europe).
Movies, sports (i'm totally fanatic about Olympics), Cinema, books, photography, painting (ok, art in general, right?), traveling, politics, meeting new people and learning how people can do graffitti on those huge tall buildings while no one sees that (the biggest mystery of mankind to me)
Music, Movies, and Books
MUSIC (listing some of my mind right now)
Simon & Garfunkel
The Velvet Underground
Secos e Molhados
some directors in particular, like
Jean-Luc Godard, Eric Rohmer, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Mia Hansen-Løve, Oliver Assayas, Yazujiro Ozu, Ingmar Bergman, Carlos Manga, Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder
and some movies more than other, like
Morte a Venezia, Le Rayon Vert, The Hours, I'm Not There, The Godfather, L'Avenir...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Walk everyday through Copacabana beach to go work. Amazing sight, and the thing i miss most i guess about Rio.
Sang really loud while riding a tunnel in Beirut with a friend (and a CS host!)
I got to know the life and death of Romas Kalanta, while in Kaunas.
Teach, Learn, Share
I know everything (ok, almost) about movies. I'm always keen to learn about national culture and politics. I can teach some portuguese, and learn another language - always trying to study a new one!
