Hello, my name is Luciano Gurgel Amorim, I'm 23 years old and I've been living in Portugal since 2019, where I've been studying. I graduated in International Relations from the University of Coimbra, where I am currently doing my master's degree in peace studies. At the same time, while I was doing my degree, I saved some money so that when I was doing my master's I could make some dreams come true. Since September 2022 and the last few months of 2023, I traveled to Mauritania to cross the Sahara desert on a train, I went to Russia despite all the difficulties in getting to know the country, and I also traveled to India, Nepal, France and a few other countries. At the same time, I would like to fulfill my dream of traveling and crossing the Atlantic. I must admit that I have no experience, but I know that it is a strong desire and that I would do my utmost to make this trip as special as possible. At the same time, after four years I'd like to be able to return to Brazil from the other side of the ocean.
