About Me

ABOUT ME

I'm a musician, an amateur athlete, a sailor, a jogger, an engineer, a language lover and a failed writer.

I do social travelling. I get to know places and culture through its people. And I see music, languages, food and humor as means to get there.

I guess I could say that these days I'm looking to live the expat lifestyle, to settle away from home. And I'm doing that with a guitar on my back, looking to learn new rhythms at the same time...

Here's a link to my blog, if you want to know more...

PHILOSOPHY

Our parents' generation didn't have CS. We are very lucky to have it around. It makes for a totally different kind of travelling.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've been going to CS meetings since 2006. I love how you can just come up to people and say hi. Most of the close friends I have today, I've met at one of these meetings. I had my best experiences in Montreal, Berlin and Sao Paulo.
