About Me


The Revolution is L.O.V.E!


A Brazilian passionate about traveling. There's nothing better than explore new places, learn from different cultures and cultivate new friends.

I'm a journalist and a PhD student. Right now, I'm living in the beautiful city of Lisbon, in Portugal.


"They danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn..."
(Jack Kerouac, On the Road)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting people and opening my place for couchsurfers. Sharing my personal experiences and travelling!


Ottawa with Catherine and Natalia. A funny experience walking around the streets, meeting 'weird' people everywhere, and findind a brazilian flag in the house of a real Canadian!New York, Boston - with nice people around, coffee and good conversation! Brooklyn with great nightlife and the best couch environment at naked Paul's loft.

The rice fields in SE Asia - the green collor, the unstopable rain and the beautiful souls I've met there, specially in Cambodia - where I lived for 3 months during my internship at UNICEF.

The beautiful landscape of WALES. If you haven't seen Rhossili (Gower Bay), you're missing one of the most beautiful spots of this world.

And a bunch of other stories collected in each travel around Europe.

I have a never-ending list. So...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've traveled around South East Asia. I've been in the middle of snow storms in Canada and slept in a secret garden at GeorgeTown (US). I've seen the beauty of the Amazon rainforest, the huge São Francisco river. I've seen Iguaçu Falls in Brazil and Niagara Falls in North America. I've been together with a crowd at Carnival, I've been in a quiet mountain in the heart of Brazil. I've danced samba in Rio de Janeiro and had great nights in São Paulo. I've been a journalist when the first woman was elected president of my country. But now, I want to be 'on the road' - around the world!'

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm on Earth to learn how to love people and the environment. I do believe in sharing knowledge and experiences.
