Hi there! I'm Char. 👋

I'm a semi-grounded digital nomad and entrepreneur who's always on the go. ✈️ I'm currently based in Baguio, PH but I'm always on the lookout for new adventures! I love meeting new people and making friends, so Couchsurfing has been a great way for me to connect with people all over the world. I've met with so many amazing people here on CS—people who have become lifelong friends and helped me see things in a new light. ✨🙌

I was born in a small highland town called Baguio in the Philippines, it's not that big, but it has a lot of history and culture that makes it very special for me. There are many things to do around here: you can go for a walk through a pine trail or visit the museum near the city center; you can also go shopping at one of the malls or just hang out with your friends at some pub or cafe.

I'm always looking for new places to visit and meet new people while I'm there, so if you're interested in chatting over a cup of coffee or grabbing a drink sometime, let's get in touch!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting new people and learning about how they see the world. I've had some amazing experiences just from exploring the world, and I'm excited to keep having more. The best part is that it's all about making connections with other people—it's not about the destinations or the sights. 👀

I love hearing about other people's stories, and I love being able to share my own stories with others. It's a great way to learn more about the world and how different cultures live! I think it's important to get out of your comfort zone and experience new things. If you're not willing to do that, then you'll never know how amazing this planet can be. 🌎


I always wanted to travel around the world.

When I was a kid, my mom gifted me a book about the different countries of the world and ever since, I was mesmerized by how much the world has to offer. My dream has always been to travel around the world and see all these beautiful places that I have read so much about, but never had the chance to see them firsthand because they're too far away from us (or maybe we just don't have enough money).

This is the story of how I started traveling.

It all started in 2016, when I was introduced to plane tickets. Ever since then, I've been traveling anywhere whenever I can. I've been everywhere, mostly in Asian countries where I can travel with my third-world passport (which means that it's pretty difficult to access other countries for us).

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a huge fan of fantasy and adventure novels, so when I first saw J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" movies, I was blown away. They were one of the most visually astonishing films ever made, and they had all the elements of a great fantasy adventure: suspenseful storylines, lively characters, and scary monsters. 👻🧌

I like to read books and watch movies in this genre because they're so much fun to get lost in—you can imagine yourself walking through Middle Earth right alongside Frodo Baggins or Bilbo Baggins!

I love a huge dose of thriller, mystery, suspense, and horror too—just like any "normal" person! 💃

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I'm a bit of a daredevil, and I love adventure a lot. 🥾 If you're looking for a travel buddy who can hold their own in the face of some pretty scary challenges, I'm your girl! Here are some examples of my crazy-cool travel achievements:

✅ Conquered my fear of heights by cliff diving and even dislocated my right shoulder in the process - June 2016, La Union, Philippines 🇵🇭

✅ Bravely hiked The Great Wall of China, despite my fear of heights - December 2018, Beijing, China 🇨🇳

✅ Embarked on a solo mountain hike alone in a foreign country and lived to tell the tale - July 2022, Da Lat, Vietnam 🇻🇳

✅ Unlocked a new hobby: freediving🤿 (2 years later, I realized I'm not meant for freediving) - September 2022, Pangasinan, Philippines 🇵🇭

✅ Hosted my first surfers - December 2022, Baguio City, Philippines 🇵🇭

✅ Drank snake wine w/ locals 🐍🐍 - July 2023, Okinawa, Japan 🇯🇵

✅ Discovered scuba diving for the first time and I loved it so much - May 2024, Cebu, Philippines 🇵🇭

Teach, Learn, Share

👩🏻‍🏫 TEACH: I would love to share my knowledge of travel blogging, digital marketing, social media, and remote working 👩🏻‍💻 with others.

📚 LEARN: I am always eager to learn new skills and gain new perspectives. Whether it's learning a new language, trying a new cuisine 🍜, or learning about a new hobby.

🤝 SHARE: I believe that travel is about more than just seeing new places; 👀 it's about sharing experiences and making meaningful connections with others.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I might not have the ultimate answer to life but I can teach you how to set up a blog of your own, and some SEO and digital marketing strategies that I have learned. Additionally, I would be happy to whip up a meal for my hosts. 🍳

I am a wonderful listener too. I'm always open to getting new insights and perspectives on different topics.
