About Me


Spread the habit of drikning mate (south american tea) to all the world.


A Brazilian guy living in Scandinavia since 7 years.
I love to travel, get in contact with different cultures and If you let me, I'll definitely try to convince you to go to Brazil (my home country).

Besides that, I like music, hiking, movies, riding a bicycle, swimming and I am always looking forward to a good chat with friends followed by some beers or drinking mate.

If the weather is good I like outdoor activities such as hiking, picnics, etc.

ps: if you want to surf with me, please check my couch info. I try (not always succeed) to write the dates when I'm sure to be away there.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host, I surf, we chat, we have dinner, we drink mate. I want to meet interesting and different people!


So far Ive received about 50-60 persons and Ive surfed at more then 20 places (plus met many others). It has been awesome, people that show up here have always so much experience to share. On the other hand, when you travel and get to know how is the local's life, instead of only the tourist scene.


Interested in mate, traveling, music, meeting people, social beer, computers, nerdy cartoons, making cocktails...

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Pi, Requiem For a Dream, Snatch, Lock & Stock, City of God, Any Kubrick movie (Specially Full Metal Jacket), Any Tarantino movie (Except Kill Bills), Being John Malkovich, Fight Club, Big, Godfather, Dracula, A Dog Day Afternoon, Catch Me If You Can, Trainspotting, GoodBye Lenin, Amelie Poulain, The Shawshank Redemption, Amores Perros ... (there are so many)


Books: Saramago is the man (any of his books are awesome). 1984, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Mar Sem Fim , The Clockwork Orange, The Lord of the Rigns. Furthermore, I love the comics from Neil Gailman, Alan Moore and Frank Miller and I read a bunch of manga (Monster, 20th Century Boys, Evangelion, etc)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I haven't so far done something Indiana Jones outstanding, but I do have a lot of histories to tell my future kids =)

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, I can tell you a lot about Latin America and also a little bit about the other places I've been so far.
I'm a mate lover and I will make you try it and if you want it, I can teach you how to do it. =)
