About Me

Minimalist and simple.
Crazy about traveling.


"Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance"
"Karma assures justice for all."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Heard about it from a good friend from Holland. Thought I'd give it a try.
For the time being, I'm ok to meet up for drinks or a meal with other CSers to share travel stories.
I haven't surfed or hosted yet but might happen in the future.

Because I love mingling with locals of a particular country, to know what inspires them to move ahead in life.
Because I want to get a good taste of the local food & culture .
Because I want to get a good look at the country's landscapes.


Traveling to as many countries as I possibly can.
Minimalism. Simple living. Living a life of gratitude and serenity even with little possessions and money.
Beach, sun & sea.
Adventures in natural settings.
Fitness. Yoga. Dance. Spirituality.
