About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy life with my wife as we travel around the world and make new friends.

ABOUT ME

I'm a Brazilian thirtysomething fellow traveler easygoing and friendly.

My wife and I have been nomads since 2010. So we don't have a permanent address anywhere in the world. We keep traveling and we work remotely for our businesses back in Brazil.

I develop software for my company and Patricia is a wedding photographer. We usually spend a few months in Brazil each year, so she can take pictures of several weddings there.

We travel together all of the time and we love to make new friends. That's why I'm joining C.S. Not so much to find couches, but mostly to meet new people.

We write about our journey on:

PHILOSOPHY

I think we're in this planet to enjoy it and make it better. And we don't stay here for a long time. Every day should count. I like to travel and meet new people. So I organize my life to give me more and more opportunities to achieve that.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I don't have a couch to offer, since I don't even have a permanent house.

Since my wife and I work remotely as we travel, we can generally afford to pay for accommodation. That being the case, surfing isn't our main goal on CS. But of course we may do it if given the opportunity.

What we want the most is simply to meet people wherever we happen to be with the help of CS.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None yet since I'm quite new to CS.

I travel a lot, but I've been using mostly Airbnb to find accommodation. Anyway, I'd like to try C.S. at least to meet new people.

Interests

Programming, reading, traveling, meeting new people, making new friends, tasting new dishes, learning in general. And strangely enough for a Brazilian, I don't like soccer at all and I don't like to watch TV. But I love to have a good chat and to learn about different cultures.

Music, Movies, and Books

Argentina is my second home and has stolen my heart. So I love Argentinian movies in general. Las Nueve Reinas is a bit old now, but it's one of my favorites.

As for reading, one of my favorite authors is the Portuguese writer Jose Saramago. Can't get enough of his books.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been a nomad for more than three years now. It's quite amazing to have no permanent address anywhere in the world. I love to keep traveling while I still do my work from wherever I am.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can speak a few languages and I've always loved to learn new languages. So I'd be pleased to teach some languages and learn a few others. I've been to many countries, so I can also share my knowledge about them. Specially Brazil, since I've lived there for most of my life. I'm a software engineer, so I can naturally share my knowledge on computers as well.
