About Me

I was born and raised in Portugal but I have been living in Australia long enough to call it home.
I'm quite open minded, social, positive and easy going. And I try to enjoy life at its fullest, making the most of each day.

I much prefer long term stays which give us enough time to connect. I'll prioritize long term guests so don't be afraid to ask for the whole length of your stay in Brisbane. I've establish some good friendships with guests before and hope to continue doing so.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to meet people from different cultures. Meeting new people always brings something new. It's great to exchange travel stories. And I love to travel too! I love the multicultural experience overall.
On top of that, I love Brisbane and I want to share it with travelers.


Socializing, board games, massages (give or receive), movies and series (Netflix rules!), outdoor activities like hiking and sightseeing.

And some favorite TV shows...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The Great Barrier Reef was quite an amazing experience!
But I'd say that the most amazing thing I've done was to get in a plane to come to a country on the other side of the planet and where I knew no one at all... And I don't regret it a single bit! :-)

Teach, Learn, Share

I quite enjoy having intelligent conversations where I can teach and learn. I know a bit about many things and I can easily absorb what others have to teach me.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm not a great cook, especially out of my environment, but I'll definitely help with the cleaning and any chores I can help with. And I can also give nice massages.

Countries I’ve Visited

Canada, England, France, India, Ireland, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine, Viet Nam
