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.


The only disability in life is bad attitude

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am looking forward to meet interesting people. Make friends, find soulmates, learn languages..Many things! I met so many amazing travellers so far and learn how to cook plenty delicious vegetarian dishes gratefully to my surfers or hosts. I've been learning always and helping with advise to those who need it. I am enjoying being in global communication and having a touch of continuous sense of travel, which I get here.
But there are also some things I try to avoid: making profit of people, mess, disrespect and ignorance. And trust me, I can see it easily from your own request.


I like to learn new things always.
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 Barrio Latino if you are interested.
Tried to attend capoeira trainings. Tried play drums.
Now trying to learn how to surf. Always moving.
Addicted to learn foreign languages.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Quit my job after recent promotion for doing master with Erasmus Mundus :)
(after 1 year and 7 months of working, to be precise)

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to cook with foreign people, love to learn on the kitchen. I am such a crazy foodie!
Exchange languages. Sometimes it require some wine as facilitator :) This is exactly the way how I am improving my Portuguese!

What I Can Share with Hosts

As this is my last year of thesis, 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.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 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.
