About Me

Part of my job as a researcher has been to explore the different islands within the Philippines. I have also been given the opportunity to learn more about the culture and tradition in other countries. As I grow older and meet new friends through my travels, I realize that there are still a lot of places, cultures and people that I am yet to discover.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is an avenue to meet new friends and to learn more about life. I have been here recently, but I must say that I have already met several people who shared their life learnings with me. This has been a very interesting experience for me and I want to keep on doing it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A few years ago, we went snorkeling in the coral reef system in Bohol, Philippines, and then I drifted to a part where I can't see the bottom - it was just pitch black. That is where I realized how minuscule I am and how vast the world is.

Teach, Learn, Share

Meeting people from other parts of the world is a give and take experience: you share your culture and you learn from their stories. I'm a newbie in travelling around the world. But I can share my experiences to anyone. Other than that, I'm an aspiring writer. So, hopefully, I can also learn and share about it more.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share my different experiences during my travels. I can also teach English to those who are willing to learn.

Countries I’ve Visited
