About Me

-I'm an open minded person and it's easy for me to know new people. I love to travel and to know different countries and cultures. I also like to talk about several subjects. When traveling, I enjoy to really know the country's culture, monuments, museums, food, nightlife and people's way of living.

Since 2014 I have been working in Africa and currently I live in Kigali-Rwanda!


I usually travel solo (unless I meet up and join other travelers on the road) and on a short budget, but this doesn't mean that I use CS for free accommodation.
I try to travel light but usually have my sleeping bag with me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Some people think that life is a bitch! I think the opposite! I enjoy life -with many activities and travelling is one of them. I adore knowing new people, that we can talk, discuss and laugh together.

I want to be free and explore the world.

Would you like to join me???
