About Me

I'm so proud of my reply rate! haha I automatically ignore short fly by night requests - If we can't even talk, why bother hosting you right? Also, I also require all my surfers to bring a paper bill from their country of origin or any other unique currencies from other locations. I'm fillin up our wall with em so I'd love it if you throw some more into the collection. I also love herbs and spices. Salamat!

ABOUT ME Mabuhay! My name is Junior. An earthling who believes in the kindness of strangers. That the world is not as bad as most people say. I love backpacking and laughing constantly. Sincere, spontaneous, sarcastic, mildly discriminating but decent (cough). I instantly go along with people who are also easygoing, those who are not glued to their phones, lonely planet guides or silly schedules. I live for the great outdoors, street food, good conversations, cheap beer and a sucker for completely new and random experiences! For more info, Check my references and be discouraged, warned, be very, very afraid. haha I am the last remaining steward of the legendary Hobbit House CS Houses: Original, High Gardens and currently, Winterfell. (The GOT spirit is strong) A house built by a long history of good food, great stories and liquor. We are only known because of the people that help make our sometimes unbelievable stories come to life. I'm also the captain of the Happy Boat Parties. PHILOSOPHY Our lives are not our own, we are bound to others, past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm on couchsurfing because I want to understand the world better. The first step to achieving world peace (i believe) is by opening your doors, eyes and heart to complete and random strangers.

I plan to travel more in the next few years and hopefully get to host more travelers as well.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

They're just too many to mention now. Fact is, signing up for Couchsurfing is prolly the best decision I've made in my life so far. Totally changed the way I look at life general.
