About Me

Hello, fellow travellers! I'm Valério Neto, a 30-year-old on a journey to unravel the wonders of the world. Currently pursuing my PhD at Griffith University, Australia's top-ranking university for Tourism, I find joy in both the academic realm and the vibrant experiences life has to offer.

I'm not just about research papers and lectures—I'm a laid-back individual who relishes the simple pleasures of life. Meeting new people is my forte, and I'm always up for a good chat over some beers. Whether exploring the hidden gems of a city, enjoying the company of friends, or discovering the perfect local brew, I believe in embracing every moment with enthusiasm.

Join me in creating memories, sharing stories, and savouring the richness of diverse cultures. Let's connect, learn, and make our Couchsurfing experience meaningful! 🌟

I am really a believer in the reciprocity pact. So, 'not accepting guests' on your profile will weigh partly from my acceptance or not.

Couchsurfing is about making connections. It is not a Tinder!

Connect with me on Instagram if you want: @valeriorsn (sometimes I deactivate when I have a heavy workload for my PhD).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

For me, Couchsurfing is more than just finding a place to stay; it's about the enriching experience of connecting with people from all walks of life. I'm here to meet new faces, share laughter, and build meaningful connections. It's a platform where the world becomes smaller, and friendships transcend borders.

I believe in the power of helping others, and Couchsurfing provides a unique avenue to contribute to the collective imperative of making the world a better place. By opening my home, I hope to play a small part in creating a more interconnected world.
