Why I’m on Couchsurfing

#Couchsurfing, for me, is not just about finding a place to stay, it's about the incredible opportunity to meet like-minded individuals who share a passion for cultural exchange and exploration.

Chat turned conversation,
Everyday topic turned into deep discussion,
Eventually, we turned to best friend.

I believe that travel is best experienced when you connect with the heart and soul of a destination, and that's why I here. Try to understand daily life behaviour, how you as local think do feel.

I am genuinely interested in getting to know you better, not only as a host but as a friend or bro..
Learning about your interests, lifestyle, traditions, and way of life would be a fascinating experience, and I hope we can share stories and laughter during my stay or your stay =)

I am here not to find myself, but to remember my life and who I meet along my journey
Friends come and go, but memories will be created and stored in my life journey.

Ps : I turn my paid accommodation into food, so we both can has a amazing meal together, why not..

Mindset with a positive vibe

Try to avoid staying with extroverts, it will drain all your energy.
