Sobre Mim

CURRENT MISSION

Learn to play an instrument

ABOUT ME

I'm a PhD student in Atmospheric Physics at Dalhousie University (Halifax, Canada). My research is focused on coastal fog and marine aerosol chemistry. I try to enjoy life as much as possible by discovering new places around and traveling to the less busy places. The good side of being a graduate student is that research and conferences make me travel a lot, so even though my vacations are usually pretty short I get to travel a fair share.

PHILOSOPHY

I think it's important to make a difference in the world, as little as it can be. I'm a big fan of truth and honesty.

"Seuls ceux qui ont des cheveux longs ont peur, car personne ne peut tirer les cheveux de celui qui n'en a pas." (Only those with long hair are scared, because no one can pull the hair of the one who has none.)

Por que estou no Couchsurfing?

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I started my CouchSurfing experience in Iceland which I think was a really good thing. First because Icelandic people are amazing and so generous, and second because I wouldn't have enjoyed Iceland as much if I hadn't used CouchSurfing. I didn't surf at anyone's place there, I just met surfers, but my experience was worth it. I didn't expect it to be so interesting, so rewarding. Maybe I was just lucky but I don't think so... We all have that same passion, about travelling and discovering other cultures, can't make anything else than a good time when we meet.

Since then I have been hosted several times by great hosts in: Sault Ste. Marie (Canada), Moscow (Russia), St. Petersburg (Russia), Burlington (VT, USA), Berlin (Germany), Poznan (Poland), Vienna (Austria), Nome (AK, USA), Ushuaia (Argentina).

Uma Coisa Incrível que Eu Fiz

Spent one month on a research ship in the Atlantic during hurricane season. Can't say I've enjoyed myself the whole time, but it is a truly memorable experience!

Ensine, Aprenda, Compartilhe

I can read/write Korean (without understanding much which makes it pretty useless) and I can teach French of course. I can also teach a few mental calculation techniques.

I want to learn more languages (improve Japanese, Spanish and especially German) and my goal for 2015 is to learn to play an instrument (I keep on pushing that.. -_-).

O Que Posso Compartilhar com Anfitriões

My experience, past travelling, and vision of life. I think it covers a lot of potential conversations already.
