About Me

CURRENT MISSION

by meeting people and getting to know who they are, maybe i can figure out who i am.

ABOUT ME

im really horrible at describing myself. it actually stresses me out a bit.

im a nice person though. i like being happy and chill and i dont like drama. im not a fan of hostels, hotels and the like. the way to travel for me is to stay with people who live in the area... help them with their groceries, wash their dog, pick their brain a little. people want to be heard so i'll listen, im interested in how people are living, i love to know their creative passions.

after uni, i moved to korea to teach and travel and thats what ive been doing the last four years. its been an amazing experience for me and afforded me the opportunity to travel as much as i have...

im an open book, so if we get the chance to meet you can learn more. im just bad at summarizing i guess.

PHILOSOPHY

be honest. i try really hard not to put myself in situations where i have to lie.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
