About Me

Hi! Me and my wife live in Porto Alegre, extreme south of Brazil, and we´re looking forward to host travelers from around the world in our couch, and help them to know the culture and costumes of our city. I work in the Federal University of Porto Alegre and my wife is a personal trainer, and in the free time we love to enjoy the natural beautys of Porto Alegre, also in the coutryside of our state. In vacations we like to travel around and meet new places, new countries and make new friends. We also have a blog, telling stories about our travels around the world, the adress is: and the instagram is @arielcastrofarias

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I,d like to show that Porto Alegre can be a touristic place too, with lot of beautys that brazilians and foreign visitors can enjoy. I´ll be happy to help visitors to get around and meet this city, enjoy a good bier, and watch them leaving here with the feeling that they had a great time in a wonderful city. Even if the traveler can´t stay in your house, it will be my pleasure to provide them a tour through the best spots of the city, show them the best places to eat, where to take a bus, and help with any issues they might have.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like alternative rock n´roll, my favorite band is radiohead, movies too, i prefer the foreign ones (not americans), although i like silly comedy once in a while. Books i like byographys and learn a lot of my actual studys, about international relations.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
