About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Making the most of life!

ABOUT ME

9 years ago back in 2004, I went abroad for the first time in a culture exchange program with AFS. I did home-stay in Osaka, Japan for 10 months, lived with a very kind Japanese family and went to a high school there. That was when I totally fell in love with this country, which was the reason why I came back here for university after graduating high school.

I lived 4 amazing years of uni life in the famous onsen city Beppu, graduated and decided that I hadn't gotten enough of Japan yet. That's why I got a job, moved to Tokyo to start my working life here and see how long this country's going to keep me :)

I'm a very positive, easy-going and open-minded girl. I like to meet new people, going to new places and trying new things. New cultures and people with different ways of thinking and great stories to share always intrigue me.

I love smiling, having fun and live life to the fullest!

PHILOSOPHY

We only live life once, so I want to see the world and experience things as much as possible. I've got my own principles too, but I'm trying to say "yes" to almost everything and most of the time. To me, life is a creative adventure full of exciting possibilities waiting to be explored.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I started surfing couches from December 2009, and started hosting people with my roommates in Beppu from April 2010.

I've joined some CS events in Hanoi and Tokyo, also organized a hanami event once and greatly enjoyed it so I'm thinking to organize more.

Every CS experience has been great so far ^^

Interests

Traveling, culture exchange, volunteering, dancing...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

- I saw 23 shooting stars in a row on a freezing night in Beppu. - I did almost 2000km of hitch-hiking around Japan, from Osaka to Tokyo and then from Tokyo back to Beppu, Kyushu.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm always eager to know more about other countries' cultures and customs, different ways of thinking, different experiences... And I would love to hear different stories about where and how you have traveled.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Since I have been a host myself for a long time, I know what it is like opening up your home to people from different walks of life. It is exciting and fun, but at the same time I understand you would also want the couch surfers to respect your home and share with you their experience, culture in exchange. As a Couch surfer in your home I would make all the effort to be as considerate, respectful and fun as possible.
