About Me

Please Read everything so you dont come asking me things that are here and so that you can get an idea about how I am so u know what i will and wont tollerate if im hosting.

Born and grew in Trinidad and Tobago. Enjoy relaxation, good company, adventure, massage, nature and art and martial arts and balanced with my alone time.

Interested in sharing good moments with potential friends.

I like couchsurfing because many times I meet some amazing people that I know I would never have gotten to meet and in this life the more amazing souls you meet and hearts connect just makes like better. Always good to expand in that way.

Couch surfers help me feel like I'm on vacation and break the monotony of everyday life which is something I like to practice.

Once I have time and am in a good mood in happy to host.
I may just ask you (if you can) to get me duty free alcohol iwhen entering through the airport🤣.
This is so we can sip on something when we go on an adventure.

Also, please give a detailed description of yourself if you request. Tell me.something i may not ask about you.


N.B.: im very chill but there are some things that couch surfers may do that I DONT forgive... (due to past experiences)

If you say you will do something, please follow through and do it!
10 points if ur a man/woman of ur word.

If i make a commitment to you, please make a commitment to me.
That means if you say you will do something with me and we set out to do it and then you want to bail then that wont be cool.

Also, if i take you somewhere and somehow you find the grass is greener somewhere else and decide to go separate ways...well... you can guess i wont have you around after that. I dont operate like that.

Show me your genuine side.
If you lack empathy and compassion dont contact me. We are all emotional creatures and thats not necessarily a bad thing.
But if you have mastered your emotions ild love to hear what u have to say on it.

Also if you are homophobic or scornful we wont get along. Cuz if I like you i might even hug you. If that makes you uncomfortable then you are better off around someone else.

If you are extremely religious then go stay at a church or something. I dont care for religious views. Let the power of God manifest itself in empty silence.

This is a message to couch surfers who have abundant money but just want to do it for the thrill:

Please... if you dont like coming out of your comfort zone a bit i suggest you use a hotel or airbnb or at least dont request me.

Because if im hosting you it means i decided to spend my time and share my energy with you and i will try to show you a nice time in some way.

My time is better than your money. Be straight up about your likes n dislikes. Its not about the money, or the fact that if things go south you can just hit the road. Its about the experience so make it a good one. So dont come with the attitude of money can fix everything cuz i might trip out on you or better yet ill just take your money in exchange for my time n energy.

This is important so try to understand where im coming from.

I am extremely sensitive to subtleties and i hate subtle disrespects. Be honourable and have integrity.
If you know you have high standards then spend your money to meet your standards. I cant tollerate any bullshit from any strangers that are just passing through.

Be genuine, keep yourself tidy because im not hosting any hobos, and be considerate.

Please reserve your best self if you wanna spend time with me.
Otherwise we wont have a good time.
Couch surfers in the past have made me get a bit bitter with Couch surfers so be very mindful of how you come across if you choose to message me.
If you request and I accept to host you please dont just act like you got what you were looking for and try to dismiss conversation with me. Thats a subtle disrespect.
So saying something like "lets talk closer to the date" may come across rude to me in the moment and I may choose to never respond to you further.

So be mindful. Im tired of having to teach people things their parents failed to teach them.

That being said hit me up and lets see what happens 🤗

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

For me couch surfing makes me feel like I'm on vacation when I'm not. Something about having people around who are on their own vacation is contagious.

Also, sometimes I may spontaneously decide to go somewhere and usually on a tight budget and very late so I hope to be able to meet a lot of great people who would be able and willing to let me stay with them and share good moments and become good friends.
I would be really happy for company on some adventures too ^^
