Living life to the full, and taking this to the others
I'm Felipe, I'm brazilian, 36 years old, straight.
I have a degree in International Affairs and a degree in Economics. I enjoy meeting new people and hanging out with my friends; actually, on a personal note, I'm cheerful with a friendly personality. I'm a very keen sportsman, but it doesn't matter if I win or lose. I love swimming and running. I like taking part in brazilian competitions. I like playing cards and board games with my friends.
Extrovert, dynamic. Get up early, eat so much, helpful, energetic, outgoing and warm. That's so me !!!!
Food ? I don't like artificial meals, but I like very much different and exotic food: maybe a scorpion of Morocco, a cockroach from Singapure, an African beatle ??? I'm just kidding!!!! It beats me !!!

I'm christian. I wish to have life, have it to the full, and take this to the others. I would like to know different people, different religions, meet new friends, do this without any kind of prejudice. My personal philosophy is the peace. Feelings? Love, friendship, happiness, joy, peace, patience, kindness. Thoughts? For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I would like to participate in the CS Project, meeting new people, seeing other cultures, sharing our world vision, our knowledge, our missions. I’ll be very glad to help other members to achieve their goals, to build a new world, a new international community.
My first CS experience was so incredible ! You can’t imagine !!
I left Brazil on 2009 December 1st and l spent three days in Holland. On December 5th I left Amsterdam to go to London, planning to cross England, Scotland and Ireland on a month on my own!!!! I have never been travelling abroad, it was my first time.
My wish was to make a literally travel, knowing the places depicted in books like Wuthering Heights, All Quiet on the Orient Express, Pride and Prejudice, and to know Shakespeare house (if it actually remains), know Cornwall, play the highland games, visit castles…
But, unfortunately (or fortunately) the things gone wrong...... The UK immigration board in Heathrow airport decided deported me as I arrived there (they thought that I would work illegaly there) .
I stayed in a small room (airport underground), like a prison, for one day and one night, with few foods, to wait the next flight to be deported to Brazil.
Unbelievable, horrible!!! I told them all the truth: that I was going to couchsurf in UK, but they were so rude to me. I was treated in an inhuman way.
But, in God I trust, and He takes care for us.... fortunately, before to go to Heathrow airport, I was in Schipol airport (Amsterdan), it was a connection. Then, to be deported I would need to go to Schipol to make the connection. Always praying, the flight I got delayed a lot (that's the God hand!!!) and it was necessary to book the other flight that would be in the next day. Then, I talked to the transfer desk and changed my flight do January 1st. And, in a miraculous way I get out the Schipol Airport.
With all my plans changed, I travelled to Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland and Germany. It was incredible, fantastic, outstanding! The time of my life!!!!! Praise the Lord!!!!!
