Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe in the genuine spirit of couch-surfing.


Hanging out, enjoying natural views, discovering new places, meeting interesting people, having good conversations about different subjects.
I love to learn new languages, although recently I stopped because of not having enough time, my goal is to learn a new one every two years at least.
I also enjoy Math and sciences stuff. I am a social scientists btw.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- I did mountain biking over 4,000 mamsl, feeling dizzy most of time. Nevertheless going down so fast, having three big falls as result and a revitalized adventurous spirit!
- I received the New Year's Eve with half of my body inside the Copacabana beach. It was spectacular to enjoy the view of the fireworks on the sky and the natural mirror of colors formed over the water at the same time. Unique experience!
- Having a three minutes conversation with a Nobel Prize of Economics that I always admired since college. Guess who!
- Being on the Final Match of World Cup 2014 at Maracana Stadium. Although the match Germany VS Argentina was not that exciting most of time. It was my dream since a child being on the epicenter. ✅
- Being volunteer for the Olympics and Paraoympics games Rio2016. Besides of being a viewer on the other three ceremonies of Olympics at Maracana Stadium. For a momment I felt I was sick of too many fireworks. haha
- Performanced for the Openning Ceremony Rio 2016 at Maracana stadium. Too many hours of reharsals for just three minutes of anonymous appearance. At the end I feel greatful I have been part of that majestic event everytime I watch it on youtube.
- Performanced for the Carnival at Sambodromo for 2017 Carnival in Rio. Although It was for a small Samba School, just being on the middle of that crowded street was unforgetabble unique.
