About Me

Born and raised in the Philippines, but now living in the US 😄

Just your typical travel junkie (guess we all are :) and I love spontaneous solo trips! I do Digital Advertising for a living but I do a lot of exploring on the side. I'm a very bubbly but easygoing person, and I love making new friends and having insightful conversations.

Living life but still looking for my purpose. I believe one must chase all the beautiful things this magnificent world has to offer. The world is just too big to stay put. One day, it'll all just attract you to that one thing you were meant to do.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I honestly just love meeting not just new people, but awesome people that can create something extraordinary from the ordinary; People that can share their interesting lives and exchange stories and motivations and be inspired by them. I am in love with learning new things - anything under the sun really.

I like experiencing travel the way the locals do.

There are 3 things I am most interested in when I travel: People, Food, and Culture. And Couchsurfing can cover all three!

Interests

I love to eat! I want to try every cuisine in the world and I want to be brave enough to try even the most exotic kinds!

I love meeting new people, I love music, I love art, I love cooking and baking, I love to dance, and I love the beach!!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music:

I love discovering new music and I am open to all kinds! Currently, I really like music from the 90s, Alternative, Deep Saxo House, EDM, Reggaeton, and basically anything I can dance to.

Books (I love novels and Fiction):

Neil Gaiman Books
The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini
The Zahir - Paulo Coelho
Eat, Pray, Love - Elizabeth Gilbert
Roald Dahl Books (fascinated by his children's books)

Movies:

Slumdog Millionaire
Fight Club
Troy
Love Rosie
One Day
Baby Driver

Flyboys

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've seen 6 wonders of the world: the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, the Taj Mahal in India, Chichen Itza in Mexico, Machu Picchu in Peru, Christ the Redeemer in Brazil, and the Colosseum in Italy.

I quit my job in 2018 and solo traveled around the world for 2 years :) Best. Decision. Ever.

Europe: my favorite continent in the world and each time I go, I'm truly amazed with it.

Scuba diving and seeing the beautiful life underwater.

Teach, Learn, Share

Learning: Spanish

I can teach you how to speak some words in my native dialect, Tagalog (from the Filipino language). I can also cook you some Adobo.

What I Can Share with Hosts

An Asian and American cultural experience, unlimited stories and a good laugh! If I get to stay for a few days, I'd even cook a nice (hopefully) Filipino meal for you :)
