BEER CURRENCY

By With 0 comments

So many different places, faces and paces. So huge are the options of destinations, accommodations and transportations. A trip can be well planned, calculated and discussed, but it can be also spontaneous and carefree. It can be made with a group, or alone. It does not matter. Going abroad is adventurous. You face the new,…

It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (But I Like It)

By With 0 comments

After some good years, I am grateful for the visit of Pedro and Gabriela, longtime friends, studies and nights in Curitiba, who along with Irem and a few doses of Mexicana (an alcoholic and spicy shot) made me enter the night of Berlin on a Thursday. The initial plan was to find someone to host…

A shower and some coincidences

Camping is wonderful. The contact with nature, freedom to do what you want, sleep when it gets dark, if time allows you to dazzle the stars, but there are some problems too. If it is too hot your tent becomes a sauna. If it rains, it turns a boat. If it’s cold, you can still…

Adventure Time!

With a comforted heart and renewed hopes, Simon and I left Bilbao. Large cities can offer several attractions, but also the difficulty of getting a ride inside it. Thinking about it and following the guidelines of hitchwiki.org again, we took a train and faced an empty village without a lot of traffic and the prospect of long…

Oye como va

Finally came the most feared part of the whole trip: Spain. Known for being so difficult in the art of offering rides and receiving people for free, I was willing to face that challenge. Jean-marc, my host in Bayonne, took me to the roundabout where the cars were supposed to pass to take the road,…

The arrival in Toulouse was not complicated, the exit yes. Received by Hanifah, a happy Malagasy (born in Madagascar for the information) who loves to talk and show French music, we spent the first night cooking and sharing experiences, that old process of meeting and conquering the new host of couchsurfing , which may sound…

Life is way more than an iPhone

Once inside the subway in Berlin some parents got my attention more than the screaming baby on their hands. The child seemed disturbed and was crying as loud as possible. Mom and dad were not worried and didn’t try anything to calm it down, until the moment the young man decides to act. He takes…

City of Light

Lyon. City of light. Of two rivers and a live experience. Who would guess that an old friend from Curitiba who studied French with me 6 years ago, and just for one semester would host me? Well, life is good, as well as it was staying with Ana Paula Delavigne and Lucien. They showed me around, I…

Thumbs up!

A flashback combined with a coincidence of (an amazing) life. I briefly mentioned the name of the girls who hosted us in Bern, but I have something more to add now. Lia Zehnder, Simone, Lea and Sheena are awesome by their hospitality, by how we played some games and shared a dinner, but I could…

Lausanne and beyond

By With 0 comments

Thun is really a hidden gem in the middle of the Alps. Forget about going to the most famous Interlaken, which is surrounded by two lakes and full of tourists. Thun is way calmer, relaxing and more beautiful. Denise shared the same qualities of the place, and we had awesome conversations, dinner and plans to…
