About Me

ABOUT ME

I was born in Curitiba and moved to Montreal in March/2021. I love both places.

I got married in 2015 to Tati Custódio (www.couchsurfing.org/people/tatielle.custodio).

I found out CouchSurfing during my trip to Belo Horizonte and after this moment I've known a lot of people, countries and cultures. I play guitar (not so good but I like it a lot), I love to write songs and read about history (although I prefer going to the bars rather than museums when I'm traveling lol).

PHILOSOPHY

We have to study and work but We have to enjoy living as well. For me, it happens when we're traveling around and meeting people of different cultures.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I try to make everything that CouchSurfing let me do. I host people from Brazil and other countries, I surf and hand out with friends of my city and the travellers who are staying here. It's changed my life because I could meet a lot of awesome people who I would like to see again. I don't know if it is possible but I'll keep trying =]I've been organizating some meetings with poker players in Curitiba. We always have a good moment with drinks, laughs and cards. I hope it will never end =]

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

In my first experience on CS I hosted a member of northeast of Brazil, and it was a lot of fun. We travelled together to Uruguay with my father.After that, I hosted a lot of people in my place. One of my best CouchSurfing experiences is when I travelled to Chile and staied about seven days on a couch. I drank Pisco Sour almost everyday with my host, and his mother cooked a snack for my ski experience, because It was very expensive at the station.I spent my last birthday there, and there was a lot of CS members at the party. Really, it was terrific!After a lot of barbecues, parties and trips with other members of CS Curitiba, I met my first CS friend again (the member of northeast of Brazil) at his home in Porto de Galinhas. It was a lot of fun, and that place is the best beach of my country!

Walked on the Via Dolorosa street in Jerusalem.

Visited Moraine and Louise lakes in Banff National Park - Alberta - Canada

My journey through Peru and Mexico was awesome! I could know a lot of awesome places and funny people! I really want to meet it all again!

I did the Tongariro Alpine Crossing in New Zealand with more than fifty other CouchSurfers. It's a 19.4km walking through some volcanes and mountains. It was really awesome!
