About Me

Carpe diem and enjoy the process. Travelling and having friends from all over the world can make you feel like home wherever you are :D As a matter of fact, couchsurfing is by far one of the best ways to explore the world, meet outstanding and super interesting people who make your memories unforgettable

I'm interested in so many things--the world never ceases to amaze me :) Some particulars: local culture, live music, dance kizomba, and a bit of bachata, bicycling, mountains and oceans, architecture, history, philosophy, and biology...and more! I love discovering new perspectives and ideas

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I love good conversations, having a great time, sharing wonderful experiences with people from all over the world and why not make new friends :)

It's pure MAGIC because every time is different thanks to this amazing COMMUNITY, lots of original and cool PEOPLE from all over the WORLD!
Overall, I have learnt a lot thanks to all couch surfers that I have met over the last few years. Definitely, an unforgettable, priceless and unique experience!!


I love SELF-IMPROVEMENT, bicycling, DANCING kizomba, and a bit of bachata, LANGUAGES, hiking, CULTURE, meeting new PEOPLE, endless laughs, enjoying LIFE to the fullest , and ADVENTURE. And guess what else? TRAVELLING. Most of all, keep growing and learning to become the BEST version of yourself!!

Also enjoy taking travelers to experience local Porto attractions including:
_For an epic kizomba or bachata night
_To listen to an authentic fado show
_Running, bicycling or walking tour around the city :)
_Matosinhos beach for a nice swim and sunset
_Dangerous Ice-cream shops :)
_Karaoke, bars and pubs etc :D

Music, Movies, and Books

Wow, don't get me started on this one haha

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw the sun rising, the sea sparkling and people being happy :D

Teach, Learn, Share

Learning is a life-long process. Teaching and learning about different cultures, travel destinations and languages. Can share travel experiences, local knowledge of Porto and Portugal, dancing kizomba, speak portuguese and cook my internationally famous (really :p ) chicken with beer. Live life, OPTIMISM, laughter, love and GRATITUDE! Nature shows us its beauty in every moment, every unique moment. We have to learn to enjoy that and to see the positive things

Always happy to catch up for a drink or tea :D

What I Can Share with Hosts

Unique company and an unforgettable experience

I'm fascinated by other cultures and various ways of life. I believe that there isn't a right way to live in this world. Rather, I think each time we meet new people, we are shaped by these experiences and take a little piece of each journey into our lives

First off, I don't have the words to tell you how grateful I am to all the people that I've met along this amazing journey. It’s the people you meet that make travel the rich, vibrant experience that it is. They shape our memories more than the locations themselves. They can make a bad place good, or a great place bad. They teach us about what we like or don’t like in others. They shine light on our ignorance and teach us about ourselves
