About Me

The world is our playground.

I travel the world to connect with people, share interests, and get inspiration from their personal stories. I'd like to build friendships in different parts of the world and I aim to write about the unique lives I've encountered in my journey. I'd like to observe and get insights on how people think today.

What makes me addicted to traveling are the creative minds whom I meet during my trips. I always love collaborating with creative professionals from different parts of the world. The possibilities are endless.

I've moved to Madrid this year and it's been an amazing experience! I've definitely found a second home in Spain. I'm continuously looking for locals and expats whom I can meet and possibly interview about Madrid, as well as local businesses to write about for www.NomadStreet.com and www.viber.com/TheNomads. Do message me if you're interested! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'd like to meet new people from different parts of the world to share interests, possibly collaborate on a creative project, establish new connections.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've had the best experiences couchsurfing in June 2011. I just started when I recently visited Seoul and Busan. My first host showed me around Busan and introduced me to its exciting expat community. I also met the friendliest locals ever. In Seoul, I was hosted by a fellow journalist. I had a great time exchanging stories.

I've couchsurfed in Paris, Taipei, Barcelona, Amsterdam. I've hosted a few times in Manila.
