About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Exploring Asia and learning from it's ancient culture

ABOUT ME

I like learning languages, and the winds of life brought me to japan, where I am having an epic fight to master the sealed meaning in the unlimited kanjis...
I love dancing, being active as in doing sports or outdoor activities, making friends and talking about books... Actually I like talking about almost anything. I don't dislike any food, I believe that whatever other people do is somewhere within my range of possibilities, so I don't give up before trying! Even if that means making a fool of myself ;)
At the moment I have traveled to Korea, Indonesia, Japan, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Cambodia and Vietnam, where I had a terrific time with wonderful people!!!
In the future I would like to visit the Phillipines and India, and maybe your country if you suggest me to do so.
I don't smoke nor drink, and I promise to behave and follow the rules of your couch if you ever accept to host me.

Nice to meet you!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Many good friends introduced me to the CS system, and I have just started but I hope to learn a lot from mixing tourism with a meaningful cultural exchange.
My room is very small, but I am looking forward to sharing my couch, especially if a former host comes to visit me :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
