About Me


The Grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for... I am still trying to discover two of those things...


On September 2013 my lovely partner Chris and I are starting a 4 months trip around places around the world that we always wanted to go!! China/Tibet/Nepal/India/USA/Peru/Bolivia/Chile/Argentina/Brazil!!
I am beyond excitement and cannot wait to all of the things I will learn and see along the way.
I am a photographer by profession and a traveller by heart... I have the privilege of saying that I have been around a lot, have lived in many amazing places and have met wonderful people around my way!!!


Always look at the bright side of things,Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I want to contribute to the whole project by bringing a bit of my culture and my experiences to everyone, and some joy and laughter ever if it is just for a day!!!


I just think is great that I can rely on always meeting the most interesting and kind hearted people on couchsurfing!!! I have always loved to travel alone but when I miss have people around, couchsurfing is without a doubt my safety net!!


Love meeting people!!! Interested in photography, sailing and surfing ( have tried both of the last ones but haven't had time to do it as a serious hobby)... I am in a very quiet phase of my life, enjoying reading good books and listening to music ( which helps a lot taking in consideration the whole traveler lifestyle)...I am alwys up 4 a good chat with anyone that has something interesting to say or discuss and always love to exchange music and movies so if you have seen something good lately please let me know!!

Music, Movies, and Books

So much stuff that I love!! I love Brasilian music, specially Bossa Nova and Los Hermanos... Living in Australia has open my eyes and ears to so much new stuff and some great artists like The Presets, Laura Marling, Sarah Blasko, Aqualung, Pete Murray, The Editors, Soko, Kings of Convenience, alexi Murdoch, TV on the Radio, Gotye, Melody Gardot, Madeline Peryoux, Xavier Rudd... My music list could go for hours...

Movies: I used to be a movie freak when I was young and now I carry a hardrive around to watch something during the long waiting hours at airports and the long bus trips... I was recently blown away by Inception!!! Definetely the best movie ever made!!!

My current lifestyle has allow me to read a lot... My favorite books are: The ground beneath her feet by Selman Rushdie, The Five People you meet in Heaven, Zone 23, The Slap...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have done some cool things in life... I have lived in an Aboriginal Reserve North of Darwin in australia, working in a Pearl farm... And it is definetely one of the most interesting and rewarding experiences I've had so far... And it is the most beautiful place I've ever seen!!! Have worked with poor children in Bolivia and help building a whole Zulu village in South Africa!! And done Australia on a van!!
