About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Impossible

ABOUT ME

I have been a member of CS since 2008 and it has been only May 2010 that I started Csurfing on this site. I did my first successful couch surf in S. Korea.

I just finished a 2 month gig in Ocean Park HK. I also moonlight as a travel coordinator/organizer for beach bumming events in the Philippines.

I love traveling, meeting new people, observing and learning new culture and language all the time... esp. long travel adventures on my own or with a travel buddy I meet along the way.

PHILOSOPHY

Live, love and for goodness sake, travel!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I almost touched a whale shark in Donsol, Sorsogon (swallowed a cup of sea water when I first saw those gigantic magnificent creatures).

Traveled SE Asia for 17 days and met beautiful amazing people that I have been friends with up to this day.
