What I Love:

For me, life is about encounters. We cross other's people paths, we walk through new roads, we open new doors... I believe that each one of those encounters can leave a trace in our heart and soul. My passion is to notice those moments, to respond to those interactions, to be aware of all the beauty that surrounds us.

My Favorite Ride:

My first bike was bought when I decided to do my first bike packing. The destination was Tuscany, Italy, and the goal was to explore the "white roads" of the epic Strade Bianchi. The experience across the spectacular Tuscan landscape was unforgettable: stone houses lit by the soft sunlight, olive groves and leafless vineyards, medieval villages, old family farms, "roadside" lunches of panino con proscuitto crudo and uncountable doses of macchiato.

In My Previous Life:

I left my hometown (São Paulo, Brazil) a decade ago to achieve my dream of living in France. For the past 15 years, I held different positions in the Human Resources department working for prestigious international hotel chains. Last year, I decided to explore the world with a backpack and my bicycle, and have been living, learning, and absorbing everything I can from every person I met, every place I go, every situation I face.
