About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Dreaming with a world with less corruption...

ABOUT ME

There is no way i can write all about me in a pair of sentences. :) And besides? Whats the point? You should know me in person and judge by yourself!

I can tell you this: I have a couple of good friends that admire me and would help me anytime i need. At the same time, im not one of those guys that everybody loves! Indeed, I also have people that hate me, and this is because i'm the kind of person that wont go silent when confrontated with serious injustices! I speak my mind, even when i need to say an inconvient truth! And everytime i see a lost cause, i cant help my self to go to the rescue of those in need of help...

PHILOSOPHY

Life is too short. I want to enjoy it the best I can. My personal aim is to become a better person each day that goes bye...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My idea is really simple: met new people; travel to different countries and make new friends; receive then in my own country the best i can! :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've been around :) I've participated and organize CS gatherings, I've hosted a few people and I've surfed in 4 continents so far...

Interests

I love Music. I could not live without music. I enjoy many different styles of music, from the most known groups to some less listened musicians...

I love photography and this is probably the hobby that I take more seriously, having already done 3 individual photographic exibitions on some cities on the north of Portugal.

I enjoy reading a good book, doing outdoor sports (diving, rock climbing, btt), cooking, talking about absolutelly everything...
