Join Couchsurfing to see Raquel Homa and Rafa’s full profile. It’s free!
Go from Mexico to Brazil in 2 years.
Meeting as much people as possible.
We are easygoing and like to meet people from all over the world. We like music, playing instruments (pandeiro), capoeira, surfing, circus, juggling, acrobatic silk. We also love camping, being in the nature and run from the rush.
RAQUEL: "I´m like a traveller dentist, before get in the University I discovered how is amazing to be a traveler, meet new people, get new experiences, exchange and just LIVE. Since that I became to make "meet the world" my life filosofy. Then I met Rafa, my boyfriend, who is a really traveller either. I introduced him to CS. Then we started to travel together. "
RAFAEL: "I believe travelling is a way of living. Learning, giving, receiving, checking the possibilities that life gives."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
We have been hosted many times and host in our home before we meet CouchSurfing. After that and after having our house in Brazil we begun to host lots of people too :)
Now we are traveling around in Mexico and Central America. We hope to reach Brazil in 2 years.
What will really happen? We don't know.
We know we want to meet people and more people. Different or similar people from us, and making new friends is our BIG GOAL.
I had my frist couchsurfing experience hosting two french guys at home in Acarau, both of us there was no referentes yet. Raquel was working in Brazil after 2years travelling in Europe. Cs was good to keep in contact with travellers and have the opportunity to help them was an amazing experience and helpful also. After that we had many hosting and being hosted experiences, also out of the CouchSurfing. All kinds, great ones :)
Somethingelse we host a french woman at home in Brazil, than we went to Strasbourg and surfed her couch as well. It was amazing to change Couchs.
We made a brother called Julian in Tuxtla Gutierrez in México.
