About Me

Update: 2022: I am in Salvador, finalizing my PhD studies and the time to travel has come back!
Meu português já é bom o suficiente para falar português com todos vocês. :)

Update: 2019: we are in Prague and I will be in Prague until August 2019, then I will go back to Salvador to continue with my PhD studies.

Update: 2018: We have been living in and out of Salvador, Bahia in Brazil for 3 years now. I have not changed the address on my profile because we can not accept guests here at our apt. It is small and and with one Brazilian girl.

We are not on-line 24/7, so we really need to get your request at least 3 days prior to your planned arrival. Otherwise we are not able to guarantee our reply.

CURRENT MISSION

Get to know myself and my boyfriend better.

ABOUT ME

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We (I and my boyfriend) have been hosting many international travelers. Not so much recently, because we have been in and out of Brazil, where we/I do not have conditions to host. / But drop me a msg and I´ll let you know if our guest room is available for you... :)
We have also been traveling abroad using Couchsurging. Sometimes we travel together, sometimes I travel just by myself (Petr). We are not desperate to use CS, we have money to stay in hotels, but we like the cultural experience.
