About Me

I am originally from Makassar, currently stay in Bogor.

The first thing I will look for on a trip is the local food and the ancients. To me, experience the authentication of local cuisine and visit the historical site can create many interaction in traveling, it such the best way to find out the local’s culture and characteristic of a visited place. In a good vein, I can cook some kind of dishes that I’ve learned from my mother, but I’m not an expert one.

Haunted place? Abandoned place? Yes, please! That’s my favorite place to visit — always fond of the mistery behind.

Solo-traveling is my kind of meditation. To get lost and find some unexpected things is one of my pleasure. Even though I love to meet many people, it doesn’t mean that I’m a party person. Sometimes, I prefer to avoid hustle, just have some coffee and relaxing conversation.

I’m working in a non-profit organization (NGO) that have a movement in conservation and sustainable agriculture. Would love to talk more and learn about it from others to see many perspectives.

I treat everyone equally, no matter who you are and where you are from. Racist people are not into my circle.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love hospitality exchange! I love to share the hospitality of my hometown! I love to experience the others’ kind of hospitality! And I love to meet new people! Couchsurfing is the right place for all of those things...
