About Me

Hello everybody ! My profile is a bit out of date...Im back to Brazil and im studying Mechanical Engineering. After graduating I really want to go to Sweden, so I appreciate any help from swedish people...Svenska är svårt ;/


To meet people from all over the world


My Adventure started when i was 18. I was studying Information Sistems in Brazil (yes, im Brazilian) and because of my poor english i lost the "job of my life". Disappointed, i decided to leave behind that comum life: You born, grow up, maybe have children, maybe see ur grandchildren and die. or just that: You born, study hard to get good grades, study even harder to finish uni having a fucking good job, then u work even harder to get a good money and try to get a wonderful family, then you die and leave everything here.

I lived in Algeciras(South Spain) early 2007, moved to Mallorca for the summer, then moved to Barcelona in September/07. Always travelling and meeting new people and places...In December/09 moved to Australia (Gold Coast) finished my studies and came back to my loved Spain...

After almost 4 years meeting people from everywhere i realised that no matter what your job is, no matter how much you earn per month, no matter how many languages you speak, how many courses you have, the most important thing in this world is not all these things that u have got here...the most important thing is not even the money...but the people... every single person is special. Even if YOU dont believe...for me, you are...


* People, from now on im not answering people who doenst even read my profile b4 requesting couch. So if you read this, just write "12345" on top of ur message or request than i will answer you back. Otherwise i wont.

Im a BIIIIG fan of Scandinavian and Russian culture, nature, architecture, and people in general.
Next trip might be to Tromso and Moscow ;)
Im also Crazy about Northern Lights...Hope to see it ASAP ! =)
