About Me

Hi! My name is Raphael and I'm a Brazilian backpacker who quit fifteen years of career where I was not happy to explore the world!

I am passionate about history and cultures, I wish being a writer in the future, so meeting new people and ways of thinking ends up being a "school of life" and serves as inspiration for one day publish my own book.

I graduated in Financial Management, so I love teaching people how to find a balanced and meaningful life, where they don't need to be slaves of the money and can fulfill their own dreams too, whatever they may be.

My social media is @raphamundii

Nice to meet you!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I definetely love traveling. I enjoy meeting new people and exchanging experiences while on a beach, trail or pub. It is not as easy as it seems to find lovers of the road. Since October of 2019 I decided to quit a fifteen years career that didn't used to make me happy to explore the World.


I love the idea of connecting people to share stories and experiences about each region of the world. My new dream to achieve is to become a writer, so each new culture, person or experience serves as inspiration and motivation to keep going with this nomadic lifestyle.
