About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To learn as much as possible from people and places around the world.

ABOUT ME

I'm from Rio in Brazil, and as you can see on my profile I have lived abroad and been to a few places around the world. Haven't travelled that much compared to many people I know, but I've been around, and still have many places on the list.
My main aim is to meet people and different cultures, as no university or school can teach you as much as being exposed to a multi-cultural environment.

PHILOSOPHY

Live the moment, and trust God is with you. Surrender!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have never used the CouchSurfing site. Many friends have and loved it! While in the US some years ago I travelled a lot sleeping in different places,from friend's of friends couches to church basements. I was fundraising money in the streets, to be able to get to Africa to work on an AIDS prevention project during the Angolan civil war.
Now I hope to start travelling around and staying with local people - the best way to really know the place you are!

Interests

Travelling, music, theatre, spirituality... so many things!

Music, Movies & Books

Different kinds of music, from Brazilian Bossa Nova, to Portuguese Fado, jazz, soul, blues - Love Billie Holiday!
Love Almodovar films!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

* Working in Angola as a volunteer really changed my life completely.
* The sunsets I could see on the Phi Phi Islands are still printed on my memory, along with the people I have met there.
I am so grateful for these experiences.

Teach, Learn, Share

"Make the world your classroom and the people you meet your teachers"
I saw that phrase once and never forgot it. So I do know I have something to teach and a lot to learn. What I can teach depends on the person that meets me... what I have to learn, the same!

Countries I've Visited

Argentina, Chile, Denmark, Egypt, Germany, Portugal, South Africa, Sweden, Thailand

Countries I've Lived In
