Feel free to have the best experiences the world can give me
I love people, of any culture. I have been to like 35 countries by now and each one of them was a rich and amazing experience, specially because people (they are much more important than places). Travel is my pleasure, I´m really addicted. I like to talk about any subjects, cooking, writing texts, look the stars on the beach, feel the rain drops falling over me, enjoy parties, drink beer and caipirinha, laugh with good friends...just a guy trying to be happy each day of his life, even because it passes very fast!
"If you never try, you´ll never know" - from the song "Fix You" by Coldplay.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I meet people who are visiting Rio de Janeiro to show the spots of the city (specially the hidden ones!) and share nice moments together. I host and surf. Sometimes I also join parties and events with CS fellows.
I hosted several people from countries like Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Russia, France, Colombia, Switzerland, Azerbaijan, Estonia, Poland, China, South Korea, Venezuela and also people from Brazil. I surfed in Natal (Brazil), Bonito (Brazil) Valencia and Caracas (Venezuela), Willemstad (Curaçao), Riga (Latvia),Vilnius (Lithuania), Paris (France), Sofia (Bulgaria) and Strumica (Macedonia). I love the cultural exchange the CS offers to me!
