About Me

Hello there! I am Faisal, living in Paramaribo, Suriname. A small country in South-America. I am a self proclaimed philosopher, and for the last few years especially interested in mindfulness and the Dhamma.

I am trying to learn how to paint, I like to read a lot and am on a forever journey. I am planning to travel a little myself. And I am just curious how you all experience yours.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I will be arriving in Chiang Mai on Friday, June 30th, 2023, and I am planning to go into a retreat on Monday (July 3rd) or Tuesday (July 4th).

So now I am looking for a few days friend who can tell me more about life in Thailand, maybe show me a little of your local area, and above all have some great and meaningful conversations.

Will you welcome me to town?


I would love to hear about the experiences of travelers, and maybe have some conversations on the nature of awareness and what not

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well, a 10-day Vipassana retreat was pretty earth shattering in the most positive way

Teach, Learn, Share

I am in no place to teach, but I would like to learn together, and share my home.

And please, tell me about your experiences traveling, and what you think about life.

Myself, I am learning about painting, Buddhism and ready any (e-)book on any subject I can get my hands on.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Loving-kindness, a big smile and nice philosophical conversations!
