About Me


Meet shiny happy people!


I'm a 24-year old traveler, interested in meeting people of all sorts and learning new culture.

While looking through my bank statement, I realized that I am always broke and hardly save anything so I decided to make a commitment . . not to start saving, but to splurge on traveling! That way, it makes being broke worthwhile.

So, my goal is one new country every month!

I travel like Bear Grylls !
You are a hardcore traveler with a stomach of steel, and you'll eat a grub out of a tree long before you are even hungry. You can't remember the last time you showered, but you still look good.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted a couple of people in Dubai. Met lots of people on the road and surfed in some couches from time to time. Made tons of good friends since then.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a big Kill Bill fan. And gore movies. (Not very inviting, I know!)

I listen to The Beatles, The Smiths, Belle & Sebastian, Kasabian, Modest Mouse, Black Keys and the likes. Although I listen to pretty much everything. Sometimes I go for progressive house, sometimes reggae, sometimes as extreme as metal. Or even jazz (this I'm not proud!) Even sometimes, Taylor Swift or Bieber is on radio and I don't bother change the channel (don't judge!)

I like The Catcher in the Rye and Charles Bukowski.
