About Me

Brazilian couple, lived few years in Tokyo/Japan and actually living in Brisbane/Australia, we cycled from Tokyo to Okinawa (3500km) and Portugal, Spain, France. We love everything about bicycle touring and hiking. We use our spare time to prepare our next holiday and explore our hometown.

Originally from Sao Paulo / Brazil.
We love to meet new friends.
We're learning English.
Samanta is Vegetarian and Daniel eat meat sometimes, you can not cook any type of meat at our place. But we don't mind if you want to cook something for us ;-)
We have a small and friendly dog, he's bit old and bark sometimes but inoffensive, everyone thinks he's a puppy.

If tou reach this point and want spend time with us feel free to contact us. But please send a message about us or about our dog. Like this code/filter: "bigho" on the tittle of your request. Most people don't read profiles and think C.S is only for free accomodation. (It is a good way to save money but not the main ideia)

This's a great opportunity for you to see how is the lifestyle of a foreigner in Australia.
We're LEARNING ENGLISH, we do speak a lot (Daniel does, not Samanta), sorry if you don't understand Daniel sometimes he speaks too much and get excited and mixed all languages kkkkk

PHILOSOPHY

"A man needs to travel. By his means, not by stories, images, books or TV. By his own, with his eyes and feet, to understand what is his. To plant one day his own trees and give them some value. To know the cold for enjoying the heat. To feel the distance and lack of shelter for being well under his own roof. A man needs to travel to places he doesn't know for breaking this arrogance that causes us to see the world as we imagine it, and not simply as it is or may be. That makes us teachers and doctors of what we have never seen, when we should just be learners, and simply... go see it."

- Amyr Klink

We prefer to go to work without a good night of rest and have a great time together with our friends and guests, instead coming home after work and do nothing, routine work / house / work / house
Do you understand that feeling ?
