About Me

Niterói is not Rio, it's about 40 minutes by bus or ferry boat from Rio, so, if you wanna stay close to the touristic atractions, you better know =)

We have two cats, Milton and Gardeniat go out very much, we like to stay at home, go to the beach, cook at home.
We like our house clean, so we expect the guests to be neat.

We like to make friends, so tell me why you wanna surf my couch!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Mostly hosting, I really love it! I love having people over, and I try to make my guests time with me the best I can.


I think that hosting,being hosted,meeting people from CS,made me see the life with a diferent perspective,a very good one,that makes me grow as a person everyday.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've had the opportunity to live in an urban occupation for around 2 months. It was the most wonderful experience in my life, to see how those people live, to be able to help somehow, to drink coffe in their houses, and see that no spirit is poor, and happiness is closer to you than you think.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach cooking, Portuguese, Brazillian culture and a bit of travel knowledge ;)
