About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live, love, learn.

ABOUT ME

Im a very friendly and open minded being. I can talk freely to anyone without hesitation and this has opened many doors for me or saved my ass a few times!. Travelling is a huge learning process, because it allows for unimaginal oppertunities to share both the small and big things in life. I love the freedom of uncertainty and unplanned adventure. My life is a rollercoaster except there is no beginning or end and i came off the rails a long while ago!

PHILOSOPHY

My philosophy on life is that I should be a good person and that I should always strive to cultivate the mind. Be the change you want to see.Change is a fundamental constant.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have used couchsurfing to meet great people. I have now hosted more than i surfed because I had a space over summer. This was great to help others out and it added some excitement to my life! Theres nothing quite like having a stranger to stay!

Im hoping that now I will have the opportunity to visit others. The few experiences I've had couchsurfing were really great. The kindness of strangers is amazing and its such an authentic experience.

I like to take part in the forums and actively take part in social gatherings, its a great way to get to know people from your city who may be locals, expats of travelers. And the advice is very honest and useful. Thank you to the CS community out there!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I bought a 125cc motorbike in and drove it from the Cambodian border to Hoi An (about 1200km). One of the best experiences of my life and possibly the most dangerous!!

I once spent 7 days in silence, that was quite an experience and not as bad as you might think!

I've been fortunate enough to travel to all these places

visited 22 states (9.77%)Create your own visited map of The World or Like this? try: Google Share

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach English and I really enjoy it because it is very fulfilling to teach. And I love working with people!

Teaching is Reaching, Sharing is Caring.

I want to guide others, but i understand that others can only change themselves, and
see the change in me.
