About Me


World peace, like Miss Universe


I don't necessarily have favourite destinations - I have favourite experiences in the places I've traveled to. These experiences invariably depend on whom I meet and what I do with them. Looking back, the highlights of my holidays have always been the fabulous friends, both old and new. Couchsurfing plays a huge part as always.


Everything is subjective.

Everything has an opportunity cost.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


With a big smile.


I have not stayed over at CS hosts. I have met many hosts through CS over coffee, short road trips, and gentle nightlife... in Brunei, South Korea, Georgia, Iran, Myanmar, Cambodia, and the Philippines.


Travelling, geekstuff (Final Fantasy or Saint Seiya), ice skating, swimming, reading, lively debates about politics and economics

Music, Movies, and Books

Basic Economics by Sowell / Why Nations Fail by Acemoglu & Robinson
My music interests are limited to Billboard stuff but I have a very soft spot for some Baroque/Classical/Romantic

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Bungying down the Macau Tower amongst others.
Surviving an earthquake in Tagbilaran, the Philippines.
Foolish nightlife in Thailand and Taiwan - done and will not repeat.
Walking through Yerevan, Armenia in absolute darkness.
Feeling helpless at the customs borders of Iran, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia.

Near drowning whilst white-water rafting in New Zealand.
Near car accident in New Zealand.
Sky-diving in New Zealand.
(NZ was indeed intense).

Teach, Learn, Share

If you speak Portuguese, this is probably the first reason why I sent you a message. I'm a sucker for português.
