About Me


keep walking


São Paulo-born, Madeira (Portugal)-raised, Portuguese and Brazilian by nationality, but feels more like a citizen of the world.

I love travelling and photography.

I love learning new languages, in desperate need to work on my poor Turkish and French, and to refresh my Spanish.

I love writing postcards to a handful of selected friends I miss.

I love everything about Turkey and am crazy for animals in general, cats and dogs in special!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I’ve only had very good experience with CS, both hosting and surfing, but it’s been a while since I’ve last done it.. for some strange reason, have never attended any meetings.

Music, Movies, and Books

My all time favourite book is "Os Maias" by Eça de Queirós.
