About Me


Experience, travel- these are Education in themselves- Euripides


My travel pulse rate is always at nth level. I don't know why but I think traveling is in in my veins. It is sort of my breather.

Generally, I am a happy person, living my life to the fullest, what the world can offer me and vice versa. So if there are opportunities, i always grab and hug it, especially on travels. I want to see and know life in self experience because i believe its the best way i could learn. It is not only how far you have been that tells you, you've conquered the world, it is also the people you meet and learned from it even you met him/her 10 meters away from your home.


I live my life one day at a time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


visited 8 states (3.55%)Create your own visited map of The World


I can travel alone but I prefer to be with my friends because you can share your happiness and excitement with them.

I love the sea, fishes books and photography. Sea, beach and marine creatures are ones that i want to see everwhere. I don't think I'll run out of it since the world is 70% covered by water (and even our own body). Very interesting because of its diversity. Whenever I travel, I make sure I have a book with me to read. My camera named Gelo is my all time company on my travels for me to store what I've seen if my memory got lost! lol. :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Manta bowl dive experience: The 1st i ever seen a multiple manta rays in big sizes. It was a jawdrop. I'm glad to swim with them though we are against the current. Worth the experience...

One thing that ive done that was so amazing is when i dive Barracuda Lake in Coron, Palawan. You will feel as go down to the bottom, the temperature changes due too the presence of hotspring). You will not see more of the fishes but the fine sand structured like a steep mount that when you punch the top, sand rolls down like an avalanche.
