One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I'm terrified of heights and consider it a big deal whenever I go trekking or go up something tall and don't die or cause other people to trip/fall due to my vertigo-induced clumsiness.

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy cooking and always want to share food :)

I like learning recipes from people of different cultures even though it's sometimes hard for me because I've been a vegetarian for years now.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Mainly I like people to feel comfortable and happy. I'm always glad to show others where I live, what I do, and show them the city.
