About Me

Hello! My name is Paloma, and I am a Portuguese/Brazilian girl.

I am a calm, open-minded, positive, and (a little bit) weird person. I love meeting new people with different mindsets. I love talking about pretty much anything. I have great sense of humor, and I can be quite funny sometimes (at least my mommy thinks so).

I love gardening and producing my own food. I am quite proud of my garden and the moment and all the food I have been harvesting.
I enjoy hiking and exploring new places, but I also enjoy a lazy day. I love sharing food and drinks. Especially craft beer, that's my favorite.

I am really into making stuff, especially food. I brew my own kombucha, and bake my own bread. I also make cheese, sourkraut, stock, vegetarian milk... Basically a lot of different things :)

I recently got into bouldering so I am always down to do that! Bonus if you have some tips because I am a newbie

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Traveling is one of my biggest passions and I try to do it every time I can (and I try very hard, trust me) .

Couchsurfing is the opportunity for me to live in another country and immerse myself in a different culture. See a place through the eyes of a local.

Every person has a story to share and meeting new people and their story just gives me more energy to keep exploring the world :)

I live with my husband (who I met through couchsurfing). So if you want to stay over maybe check out his profile as he will be hanging out with us :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I love music and I can't just choose one favorite song.
Favorite movies: Into the Wild and The Blind Side.
I love fantasy books the most but my favorite is the Wicked Witch of Oz.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I did a gap year and travel around Europe (2017)

Moving to Australia (2019)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share some tips about traveling in Portugal. I can also teach you Portuguese.
Sharing is caring :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love food and cooking, so maybe we could share a meal. I really like discovering new recipes from other countries. I don't eat meat, but not because I am allergic to meat or anything. I just choose not to. I think people are free to make their choices.

I can also offer good conversation over some drinks.
