About Me

I enjoy visiting more exotic places (to me at least), having visited some of the more "off the beaten path" places, like Easter Island, Galapagos Islands, Faroe Islands, Falklands Islands, South Georgia and the Antarctica Peninsula. You're seeing a pattern here aren't you? I am really born an island boy :) even if not the same kind of climate as Singapore.

Mountains are also my kind of thing, mainly because there is none here in Singapore.

Finally back on the road travelling in Africa for the next couple of months. Looking to creating special memories with fellow travelers on the road.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's a nice way to meet up with travellers in my home city and locals in a foreign place, understanding the way of life and also to extend my network of friends from all over the world!

I used to work at a backpacker's hostel in Singapore, so I do know quite a bit on the place travellers are interested in! Do send me a message if you need any advice or help. I'll see if I can help!

Interests

A hiker first and foremost. I travel mainly to hike in some of the best trails around the world. I enjoy other outdoor activities fishing and now, climbing as well.

I also enjoy attending live sporting events in stadium regardless of the sport! I follow football and basketball pretty closely! I have a huge interest in landscape and wildlife photography! Street photography isnt my forte, but would be keen to learn regardless :) I love discussions on history and politics!

But last but not least, FOOD! I take pride in my local foods, any foodie travelling to Singapore, just let me know :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Also visited all 7 continents
