About Me

--------------- IN THE PROCESS OF MOVING HOUSES - REQUESTS ONLY AFTER OCTOBER 30TH PLEASE ----------------
**For couch requests**:
- I prefer to host people with references.
- I also prefer to host 1 person at a time for no more than 2 nights, although 2 people can also fit if you don't mind being a bit tight.
- Weekends are better than weekdays.
- Couchsurfing is about sharing, so please consider sharing something meaningful to you when you get here.

- Please include personalized information in your request (!!!). I'll know you've read my profile if you include "Ban cars" in your message.

Hey! My name is Priscila, I'm currently based in Vienna, where I'm doing my PhD in psycholinguistics, but I'm originally from Brazil. I love: hiking, cycling, swimming, badmintoning, goofing around, jamming, reading... But above all, I love democratic, secular principles and people-centered policies.
I hate: catcalling, injustice, car-friendly policies, and authoritarian / religious governments.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I love the philosophy of being open and sharing experiences with other people.
