About Me

Travel to every interesting place around the world, learn as many languages as possible (which is why - APOLOGIES IN ADVANCE - my hosting abilities are unfortunately scarce!!).
Do everything at least once in a lifetime, consequence will lead to ridiculously making people laugh or have a great experience to tell.

Energetic, ambitious and thoughtful. Accepting all challenges! Will most likely respond with "why not?"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Love meeting new people with different point of views and cultural (especially food) experiences.

Would also love to create a network of friends (and food) around the world.

Some attempts of fusion cooking for hosts/guests will be vividly suggested by myself, be warned - you will be my guinea-pig at home!


Hiking, running, skiing, taekwondo, mountain climbing, lazertagging, badminton, kayaking, photography, go-karting, skydiving.

Basically any exhilarating sport with lots and lots of speed, or pretending to be some sort of James Bond.
