About Me

I'm one more Brazilian lost in this huge little world :)

I'm 34 years old, I grew up in the countryside of the State of São Paulo and I am a ex-doctor haha...in 2017 I decided to abandon the profession, even if momentarily (if all goes well, forever), and travel around the world to meet people and have new experiences!

I am a person full of energy, curious, versatile and do not usually create problems, on the contrary, I like to help and solve problems!

I can be a zen person, do Yoga and be vegan for a few days. I can also enjoy an electronic party, drink liters and liters of alcohol and dance until sunrise! I can stay in the bed all day long or spend a sleepless night. I can climb a mountain, run, pedal, swim or just lie on the beach and drink beer all day! I can think of a thousand things at once or create a huge void in my head! I usually like to adapt to other people's routine to make them feel more comfortable and have new experiences! ;)

I hope the world welcomes me with open arms and that I can repay all the good that I find on the way!

I really love CS's slogan and take it seriously: "You have friends everywhere, you just do not know them yet!"!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I first listened about CS through a friend in 2014, I created a profile that same year and it fell asleep until January 2017, when by chance I decided to see deep how this worked, I received a person and I could not stop anymore!

I received 47 people from 20 countries in less than 06 months! I had no bad experience with them, people of both sexes, of different ages, of all colors, some I could not communicate right, with and without religion, some to walk and others of passage and I'm sure they all left and took some learning! Now I can say that I have friends in various parts of the world! :)

I was a little unmotivated with everything before I started getting these people, but with each passing day in my life, I felt more willing to drop everything and also go around, aimlessly! And that's what I'm going to do now!!!

PS: Here's a tip for a few people in this amazing community. In that short time I have noticed, from personal experience and from reports of friends, that many people, mainly male (alpha male - will be?!), confuse things a little and think that CS is a community to achieve sexual relationships (like Tinder). Two things I have to say about this: If you start this Host-Guest relationship by thinking / talking about it, there are high chances of this not happens, you fail to make a friendship and still get frowned upon. If you do not get people who are interested in you sexually, you're probably missing the opportunity to make good friends, too. Sex will last for a few minutes, good conversation, laughs and friendships are much more lasting and can sometimes be more enjoyable! So, do not be stupid! Kiss on the shoulder! ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

- I can teach you how to turn a asshole (cu) in a dog.

- I think it is important to learn to respect the most diverse kinds of differences between people and the limits of each one, so that we can live in harmony!

- I can share my Wi-Fi.

What I Can Share with Hosts

- two ears to hear.
- a mouth to eat.
- company to go out / take a walk.
- company to do crazy things!
- laughs.
- good brasilian music to hear - in my opinion (I don't sing or play any intrument...just press the play kkk).
