About Me

Carefree, curious, liberal and looking forward for adventure.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe that the best way to know a country is to know its people, so what better way to connect than by starting by its foundation?

There are millions of people out there, each and everyone with its own story, life slices and memories.

I want to get to know as many as possible, in order to be complete!

Of course that you can't receive without giving, so I am willing to get known as well.


Exercise (gotta be healthy), cooking (desserts over here people!), travelling, playing music (self-taught guitar & bass player, as well as drums).

Alchool (not the cheap kind, only when the wallet demands).

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: I believe that as long a song/songs have been created with love and dedication, it will come out with quality tl;dr quality music people.

- Genres: Rock, Metal, Jazz, Fado, Hip-Hop

Movies: Extremes of the spectrum. Either well made, in order to spark your brain, or just a no-brainer for the giggles.

- Movies: Movie 43, LoTR Trilogy, Shawshank Redemption, Nightmare Before Christmas, Inception, Elephant Man, The Pianist.

Books: Thrillers ahoy!

- All of the books written by Jeff Abbott so far (read them!!!), LoTR, all of books written by Franz Kafka (favourite should probably be Amerika), Eça de Queirós (Crime do Padre Amaro), Gabriel García Márquez (Memoria de mis putas tristes).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Getting out of my comfort zone, and gone living with 7 other people.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach about my country, its story and curiosities.

I want to learn about anything! Be it healing, cooking, repairing, making drinks, you name it!

Share and be shared.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I have a wide general culture, and knowledge from several fields of work, so it will all depend on what my hosts feel like knowing.

Nevertheless, I can cook one mean good looking meal and dessert.
