About Me


Live life to the fullest


Probably that I am a funny person, always cracking a joke, and always up for anything. I am the guy who ends up making conversation with foreign people anywhere, and who is always learning new words in new languages. Sometimes, my friends find it funny, when I am in a bar, and I am speaking in 3 or 4 different languages at the same time, meeting new people from different countries.


“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have both hosted and been hosted, and not just does it allow me to travel more, but it's a great experience, I have met great people in this way.


Awesome! I love doing it


Travelling is a major one, obviously. I feel that the more you travel, the more you want to travel. And I embark on trips without any preparation, just because someone asks me if I want to go to a different country the next day, or just because I found a really cheap trip. I also like to learn new things, learn new languages, meet new people and have new experiences. I can speak fluently Portuguese, Spanish and English, and I have learned some thing in Polish and French, enough to converse, but I am not fluent.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I guess Auschwitz leave a mark in everyone, even if I can't say it was a pleasant place to visit.
Croatia, I would say is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited, and the Krka park is amazing.
The Dominican Republic, I love the hot weather, the relaxed lifestyle, and I want to visit tropical countries again.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, I guess languages, I am good at learning and teaching languages. I can cook a few good plates, which I also teach people. I can also help people who want to work out, with my knowledge in the area.
In terms of learning, I guess I have an open mind, I like to learn new things all the time, in particular languages
