About Me


Find a place to live next


I'm a boy scout (that's worth 10 things about me) and the kind of person who wants to learn more things than it's possible in a lifetime.

Hmm.. also the kind of person who can't fill this things properly.


Coffee, bread, wine -- and company to share them with.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I had a few couchsurfers back home (Porto, Portugal) since my brother was more involved with it and we had an entire floor for guests. When I moved away and into a house with guest room, I decided to create my own profile.


Swing dancing, guitar playing, swimming and wall climbing. Used to do a lot of hiking and camping but no more since I moved to Ireland.

I think most people enjoy travelling and seeing other cities. I don't. Visiting a new city, its museums and monuments bothers me to death. The only reason I travel is to be with people. Most of my friends are also in research and scattered around the world. As such, I tend to travel a lot to visit them. I'd rather spend a day in a café or park chatting with them than going on my own to see "houses".

Music, Movies, and Books

I like to read a lot but I've been cutting on it otherwise I don't get anything done. My 3 favorite books, in no specific order, are:

* "Le petit prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
* "White wolf" by David Gemmell
* "The godfather" by Mario Puzo
