About Me


Looking for Shangri-La


Single. Journalist... Trying to learn some Russian, but, Gosh, that's hard isn't it?


My current quest is trying to find out what I REALLY like. Difficult so far.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I know pretty well Sao Paulo, my hometown. I am keen to show the city for any travellers and could host visitors at my home for a short period (1-3 days). Anyway, If I were you wouldn't stay longer than that in Sao Paulo. I can also help you with travel hints to other parts of the country. If I have time, I'll even take you to some cool places near Sao Paulo.


I've travelled already three times to Central Asia and love the region. Actually, travelling in Central Asia is a big, big passion. I am already planning my next aventure there, in 2014!
