About Me

The first thing I will look for when I do a trip is the local food and historic ancient building. As I love the historical things, I always enjoy to visit ancients. Afterward, I really enthusiastic in experiencing the authentic local cuisine from various places and find out the story behind the dish. Undergo the local’s life in order to learn the cultures and familiarities is very amazing as well. In a good vein, I can cook some kind of dishes, but I’m not an expert one.

I started to be an environmentalist. I avoiding the use of plastic and styrofoam as much as I can, bring my own tumbler everywhere, involve myself in some environmental activities, and throwing away the habit of littering and passing it on to others.

Solo-traveling is my kind of meditation. I love to get lost and find some unexpected things!

I treat everyone equally, no matter who you are and where you are from. We forbid alcohol, drugs, and racist people at our house.

Note; When you want to send me a request to stay, please kindly write “AGA KAREBA” as the first two words on message. Without the words, I will think it again to host you as you don’t read the profile and house rules first. :)
