Die-hard traveler who just can't seem to pry herself from traveling. Blogs a bit. Parties a lot. Drinks a lot. Dances like crazy. Sings like a madwoman. Tries lots of things.
I just moved to Mountain View, California from the Pacific island of the Philippines where everything is so cheap and flights could be bought at $5 roundtrip. Traveled alone (one of the best things I've ever done in my entire life) to Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and now I'm kinda stuck in a 9-5 (really, I'm just being a big baby) and would love to travel the North and hopefully South America soon.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've only couchsurfed twice - in Malaysia and Batam. Had fun in Batam. Second part of the tour (without my host) did scar me a little (tour guide hit on me in the middle of nowhere and I had the option of jumping off the bridge in the case he did anything more). Second time, my host literally didn't tell me she wouldn't be able to host me anymore.
Despite my bad experience in CS, I've also learned to have faith in people (something traveling has taught me). So even if I may have had bad experiences, I do think CS has good intentions and that there will be good experiences for me in the future.
Coming from a third world country and Asia where everything's so much cheaper, I'd love to be able to save money and still get the travel experience I want. Besides, I love meeting travelers, it's always a fun experience. I totally love listening to their stories and hopefully will inspire me to go back out there again.
I'm a pretty simple person. I love music. Beer. I love to travel. Go dancing. Piss people off with my singing. I love books. I love to travel and experience various cultures. I'm a beach girl. BEER -- yes, that deserves two mentions.
Music, Movies, and Books
The Harry Potter series. The Hunger Games.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Volunteer with All Hands Bohol for the people affected by the 7.2 earthquake in Bohol, Philippines. Mind you, I have never, NEVER picked up a hand tool in my entire life. NEVER. And during my stay there, I learned how to get nails off roofs, break down walls, use my non-existent muscles to pick up cement and rocks. But most of all, I learned that being able to help others is the most amazing thing I have ever done in my entire life.
Teach, Learn, Share
I would also like to learn how to dive, rock climb and mountain climb and how to set camp and all that. The closest thing I've ever come to rock climbing was the Taraw Cliff, while hungover and wearing $1 flip flops. Sure, I came out of it all scarred, but it was definitely fun and the view at the top --- soooo worth it.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Probably a night of lots of fun and listening to me ramble on. I talk a lot. Usually, when I stop talking, I'm probably drunk or hungover, whichever one comes first.
I'm slightly kidding (not really). On a serious note, I am a very neat person, I clean up after myself, I'm very respectful of other people and their belongings especially when I'm not in my own house. I don't smoke, I don't do drugs, I do drink up to my limits, have learned to stop when I need to (thank goodness, I do not wanna go through college days when vomiting was still cool).
