About Me


Trouver l'equilibre... buscar equilibrio... find balance...


J'ai la joie de vivre! :)

Update September 2012:
Back living in Brasilia after amazing months living in Rio.
I got a great job oportunity here. It's good to be back and I'm loving to be with my old friends again. I realize that the deep and long friendships I have here are priceless!!!
I started doing some serious dance classes and now I can dance almost everything! Dream came true! I dance 4 times a week! Very happy with that! :D

Old profile description:
I have lots of dreams, plans and ideias. In 2011, I started to "bring them to life". I moved from "the world of ideas" to the "world of action", of making it happen! :DI'm moving out of my home town for the first time in my life. I chose the city of Rio de Janeiro, because I always had a passion for this city and because of all the amazing oportunities I can have there. From meeting people of all around the world to studying, volunteering, dancing good samba (that I'm just crazy about it) and hundreds of things that I don't even know that exists :)After Rio de Janeiro, I want to have an experience abroad! :)I just quit my job (december/2011)... so I'm gonna live a few months from my savings, so I can have time to discover myself and the world.I'm simple, always smiling, I don't care about material things, love to talk to different people, love to make people laugh.And, I LOVE to dance and travel!!!


"Just do it!" haha
It's not always easy to apply this philosophy, but i'm working hard on it every day ;o)

"Did not knowing it was impossible, he went there and did it!"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host as often as I can, and I just started surfing and going to CS Meetings :)


How come I just discover CS now (june 2011)?! hahaha

I'm new on CS. But for short notice, i think i'm gonna have a priceless exchange experience with people of all around the world! I want to meet people and learn with them about their culture and life experiences.

August 2011: I just had my first CouchSurfing experience! I hosted Adrian, a nice polish guy.
November 2011: I just had my first experience as a surfer! With Dário, great guy from Rio de Janeiro.


I want to make a bike-trip in France: looking for friends to do it ;)I really enjoy to walk in the nature, go out to dance with my friends... chill, watch the sunset... get to know a city by bike... Foreign languages: french and italian are like music to my ears!!!Outside activities: nature, hiking while enjoying being there ;)Biking: best way to know a city :)CinemaDancing (samba de gafieira, salsa, tango, forró or just DANCE! hehe)TravellingMusicPhotography

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies:Wow! So many movies to list!!! Ok, I'm gonna start with...Amelie Poulain: I love this movie!L'auberge espagnole: love, love, love! I would love to share an apartment with roomates from all around the world!The Goonies, Back to the Future Trilogy, Cinema Paradiso... Music:Brazilian music is my favorite =)I love samba!!! I love Roberta Sá, she's a new voice in samba (http://letras.terra.com.br/roberta-sa/#mais-acessadas/1060337)I love her voice!!!The Amelie Poulain soundtrack is for me the best one ever!!! Very very moving, fills my heart with joy!I'm open-minded about music, I don't like to be judgemental with metal-rock or axé people among others, cause everyone can always surprise you, it isn't always a matter of music taste ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The entire year of 2011! I had some amazing experiences!But I have to choose, right? Ok, ok, some:In two months, I traveled almost every weekend to the nicest places around Brasilia: Pirenópolis, Goiás Velho, Planaltina, Chapada dos Veadeiros, Cachoeira do Itiquira...I traveled for the first time in my life all by myself. I traveled 21 days through Paris, Amsterdam, Verona, Florence and Barcelona. It was an amazing and open-minding experience. Now I understand when people say how wonderful it is to travel alone! I met so many interesting and good-hearted people, I practiced french and italian with people from all ages!The 8 days I spent in Paris were special and changed my life somehow...
