About Me


Contemplate the world, discover, experience


In the exact moment I'm just one trying to create a sustainable vision of the world for myself.

I'm also a visual artist and student that works speacialy with street painting and illustrations.


I just want to see and go to anywhere I can, so far my curiosity is far from satisfaction. I love think of living as a work of art.

Só sei que sou apaixonada por simplesmente observar. Tudo parece realmente belo quando se está inspirado. Começo me fixando numa forma, decifrando-a e vendo quantas sutilezas ela tem, para depois ver o seu redor e ir me extasiando com meus sentidos - em sair de meu mundo imaginário e me deparar com essa realidade estranha e inapreensível.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I heard about it and got to know some people that are involved with it.
2009 I started to use it to travel and I was surprised to see how well it works. I went to some meetings in my town and as I coudn't host I've convinced my sister that hosting was a great idea and she started to do it quite often.
I also persuaded some friends to join cs, but it seems most of them are not very participative members, unfortunately... but I still belive that will change =)


already had some, so far they were mostly nice.
I was hosted some times, helped hosting others, hosted a little and met many many people in the project, even brought some friends to join it too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

if one knows how to look , any detail can be amazing.
and I rather tell my stories in person, during long conversations.

Learn? Whatever someone can teach me I'd be glad to hear.
