About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get rid of missions.

ABOUT ME

As everybody here: "i'm open minded, i love to travel and meet new people"... okay, let's just change the words to seem a little bit more creative: I consider myself an easy and very positive person, who still believe in the human being and enjoy to keep in touch with people from so many different places. To me, everyone is unique, is a particular universe to be known and that's why i consider share cultures and knowledges very edifying.Of course that the perception of yourself can not coincide with the others, the outside viewers. So, after know me, you can have your own impression. Better this way. :)

PHILOSOPHY

"Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one is listening. Love like you've never been hurt and live like it's heaven on Earth."
[Mark Twain]

"Life is too important to be taken seriously."
[Oscar Wilde]

"Less violence, more violins."
[I read in a t-shirt!]

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Amazing thing done?
Paragliding in Rio! Hmmmm.. actually, the view is beautiful, but it was a bit boring, too slow! I wanna try parachutes! Or maybe I'm waiting for a partner in crime to do something really amazing. Could it be you?

Teach, Learn, Share

I wanna it all!
I can teach you anything you think I know and so you can do the same.
Share? We could share a dance, ha!:D
