About Me

CURRENT MISSION

find the balance work-love-live

ABOUT ME

That is simple: İ am the kind of person that never fear to taste something new, know new places, meeting people. İ love mix of culture.
İ smile a lot. And easily. ***I am usually a very affectionated person, so please, don't mistake this as a flirting ***.
I have my own fashion style, that most of the times is the opposite of most of people.İ don't like (and don't use to) to comb my hair. I'm not a compulsive consumer.
it was hard to choose a mission to put in my profile, 'cause I have many dreams:
- learn to "drive" a boat and have one
- live in one of many island in front of Belém ( that is why I want have a boat),
- travel for one year or more with my daughter
- learn another profession
- speak fluent French
- learn Arabic.
- got a Colombian Spanish Accent.
- Find the true love ( is it possible?)

PHILOSOPHY

Do to ohters what you wish to yourself

A change is as good as a rest.

Prefiro ser essa metamorfose ambulante do que ter aquela velha opinião formada sobre tudo..

" Un hombre debe viajar ... Por su cuenta, no por historias, fotos, libros o televisión.
debe viajar por sí mismo, con sus ojos y pies, para comprender lo que es tuyo. Para un día sembrar sus propias árboles y darles valor. Conocer el frío para disfrutar del calor. Y al contrario, la sensación de distancia y desabrigo que estar bien bajo su propio techo.
Un hombre debe viajar a lugares que no sabe para romper esta arrogancia que nos hace ver el mundo como imaginamos, y no simplemente como es o puede ser. Qué nos hace maestros y dotores de lo que no hemos visto, cuando deveriamos ser alumnos y simplemente ir a ver"
Amyr Klink

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
- I used to host, but it is kind difficult nowadays, unfortunatly. But I try to show up to wekkly meeting in my city.
-Teach basic Portuguese ( or help to improve your Portuguese skills.
-İ really appreciate to meet new people and so help them as much İ can.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

İ had my first experience with Dan..it was fantastic - we can learn about people,place,culture... nice!!!
than, came Albert, Leon, Zeki, Matt, Nicky and Hinesh... all them so amazing meetings and a very nice experience.

up-to-date: now a day are so many experiences that I can't refer each by one, but all them have being wonderful!

I love Belém CS group, and I must to say they are my best friends at all!

Interests

I like read about places.. all about. I am doctor, i enjoy my profesion, even it makes me stressed most of times ( that is why i travel.). I love study languages ( most of the times by myself)- and so I appreciate a lot host people from any part of the world. I don't like to cook ( just because İ don't cooking)- but I like to bake cakes :))) and probably you will find only fruits and "easy" food at my home.
I enjoy talk about international affairs, politics, religion, whatever.

Music, Movies & Books

Rock'n'roll, blues, jazz!. But when i travel i listen the local music. I hate Brazilian funk and "sertaneja" ( country Brazilian music). İ love Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Rolling Stones.
Movies: foreign movies ( not Americans), French, Asiatic movies, Spanish and Brasilia too ( ok, some Americans...).

About books, Isabel Allende and Mario Vargas llosa are my favorite. My 12years old daughter is a "books eater", in got ashamed on being online while she reads, so I decided to read more.
