About Me


melhorar português do Brasil...


Multi-personality ;)
I can be different depending on mood, circumstances, people and places around.
As a resume, I can say that I like to learn new things every time (I am curious), have fun (I am funny when I wanna be) and appreciate intelligent people with wide interests (I am smart & modest) :)
All other aspects you will know when you meet me.

And I also love travelling, deep conversations, Japan, Italy, Brazil, cycling and dogs :) !

P.S. learning Brazilian Portuguese now. Always happy to practice it with native speakers or anyone who speaks it as a second language.


Fortune favors the brave.

warau mon ni fuku kitaru (Japanese)
The good luck comes to the gates where you can hear laugh.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As I meet A LOT of people every day due to my job at this point of my life I host only friends or people I already know. I am always available to help travellers and to share nice conversations together. If you are capable to become a friend from the 1st sight, I can host you maybe;))


Since 2007
I am an "old dinosaur couchsurfer", from those times when very few people knew about this network. As I don't lack new people in my life I am not very active here but when I am travelling and meeting people in my trips it is a super cool instrument to explore deeper the local culture & expand your knowledge about the world (due to people you meet), that is why I love it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Snorkling in the Red Sea in Egypt was amazing (I love to watch different species of fishes, it is like meditation and I don't get tired of it).

Climbing the Avacha volcano in Kamchatka was great (Amazing scenery!)

Travelling on my own for 7 months in Latin America (spending almost 6 months in Brazil) in 2014 was a very special experience. In my "inner time" it equals to 3-4 years at least. I learnt a lot. If you want to live an intense life - go travelling!

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach languages. Learn stories. Share opinions.
