About Me

I'm into all ways of travelling: youth exchanges, internships, CouchSurfing, Postcrossing as an abstract way and so further.
I am friendly and open but have some principles which I never overcome.
I am vegetarian.

PHILOSOPHY - The only disability in life is bad attitude.
I do not have a problem to ask you to leave if you are acting inappropriate/rude/disrespectful. Take it in count.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am looking forward to meet interesting people, new friends, soulmates, learn new languages. I deeply enjoy living global, with no borders and no limits, and having a sense of travel that never stop, which CouchSurfing gives me.
But there are also some things I try to avoid: making profit of people, mess, disrespect and ignorance.


I like to learn new things always. I like informatics. I like udemy, coursera, all kind of online self-education projects.
Used to play in female football team as a left wingback defender, love social dances with african and latin roots (salsa, kizomba, semba, bachata, zouk), so I may take you to dance if you are interested and I have some free time for it :)
Tried to attend capoeira trainings. Tried play drums. Tried to learn how to surf. Now go to the gym :) Always moving.
Addicted to learn foreign languages.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Erasmus Mundus experience (I quit my job after 1,5 years and started my life from scratch in Lisbon, Portugal), 2 weeks CS route in Morocco (Cebta-Tetouan-Chefchaouen-Fez-Merzouga-Ouarzazate-Ait Ben Haddou-Marrakesh-Essaouira-Rabat) <3

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to cook, love to learn on the kitchen. I met so many amazing travellers so far and learn how to cook plenty delicious vegetarian dishes gratefully to my surfers or hosts.
Languages exchange. I picked some Darija in Morocco! I am looking forward to learn more african and asian languages as well as practice european ones.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Important !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am oriented on people, who care more about personality than about "cheap" stay. If you read my profile, please prove it by adding a link to your favorite wikipedia article or youtube video.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I work and go to the gym and attend different seminars and conferences and this and that so I might be pretty busy. But I normally try to spend some time with my surfers. I always give recommendations. I give maps but expect them to be given back :) I always suggest to my surfers visiting Sintra. Regarding hosts, I try to be flexible and adopt their lifestyle. I normally try to bring some souvenir from the places I am coming.
