About Me


I'm not so sure if I understand this part of having a mission... I've never seen myself as a missionary


I was born in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1983 and I lived in several different countries: Argentina, Chile, Italy, Germany... I currently live in Rennes, France, and I'm about to move to Toulouse.


I use to see irony as a pretty good value, including self-derision. One might think that life as no meaning but we can drink (I love thee), we can eat (I love goat cheese), we can talk to each other and we can make love... Some much for the absurd. "Nothing new under the sun", says Kohelet... this is not so for children...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have no couchsurfing experience at all, I've just created this profile and still trying to see how does it work...


I spend most of my time with philosophy, poetry and languages...

  • poetry
  • cheese
  • drinking
  • languages

Music, Movies, and Books

I've recently seen "Faust" from Alexander Sokurov and "Electra" from Michalis Kakogiannis, both of which I highly recommend... I also discovered the music group "Trio Tzane"... Alejandra Pizarnik's poetry and that of Paul Celan keep me company very often lately...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Amazing things I've done ? Either they are not so amazing or it would be too embarrassing to mention... Amazing things I've seen ? Well, Haya Sophia in Istanbul is one of them for sure, and also the lake Caburgua in Chile
