About Me

Live in paradise and love to help people discover what it has to offer. Interested in learning about different cultures from all over the world. Love meeting new people, I dont care if you are an introvert, extrovert, trans, gender-neutral, non-binary, black, white, straight, gay, Asian, Latino, Middle Eastern, exotic dancer, nudist, priest, artist, refugee, documented or undocumented traveler--I like them all.
Just as long as you are a decent human being, or at least trying to be one. I'm willing to learn about other cultures and lifestyles (and participate). Whatever you bring I look forward to welcoming you so we can have fun, share stories or just explore. I'm very open minded and honest and expect the same.

Please be the type of person who finds time to write a review/reference after being hosted. Really appreciate the time surfers take to comment on their stay 😎
Its the polite thing to do and says a lot about you as a person.

In general, I just want to live according to my heart and learn as much as I can. Learning about life and people who come into my life. Everyone brings me something different, something new, positive or negative, etc, which I really enjoy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet new people and to help you enjoy this part of paradise. I also like to learn about people and cultures on a global scale. People are my passion and CS helps me meet the coolest people from all over the globe and I've met the coolest surfers since I started hosting.
Extended stays can be cool, had 2 surfers stay 6 weeks each in 2018 and really enjoyed their company plus an extra pair of hands to help host was quite handy!!
