Join Couchsurfing to see Vitor’s full profile. It’s free!
I consider myself as a calm and friendly guy, very curious to know new places, diferent cultures, and meet new people to develop myself as a human being conscious about world's beauties and problems.
I'm graduated as a Biomedical Engineer and I have spent the last 3 years (2013-2016) working for a big company on Healthcare Projects. I decided to quit my job and start a long trip around Latin America. I'm going to start at Mexico early on April '2017 and I'm intending to visit Cuba, Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay. So I want to go to Europe where I'm planning to do a Bike Trip around the continent.
Besides the delight to have good moments and meet beautiful places, I expect to disover myself as a person and professional by sharing experiences and skills on volunteers works I'm planning to participate.
As a traveler, I like to take time to have good conversations with hosts and locals to share life experiences and take advantage to have nice tips to explore the city. Whenever is possible I like to explore around by biking and I'm always ready to do some hiking, sports in general, camping outside, etc. I also like to cook (vegetarian meals), to drink some beers and to go to cultural and artistic events.
