About Me

"Travellers wanted for hazardous journey. Small wage, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, return doubtful. Honour and recognition in case of success" -- Ernest Shackleton

A last-minute traveler who just spontaneously throws a dart in a map and goes.

An old and weary soul. Back in the day I used to be fun, now I just brag about how I used to be fun.

To me, life is about knowledge and experience. I love to stay active, both physically and mentally.
I like to read and mediate on the topics of science, universe, life, consciousness, physics, computing, psychology, humanity, languages, as well as fiction.
Rock climbing, ocean swimming, free diving, and mountain biking are one of the more dominant activities I like to unwind through, among a gazillion other sports and endeavors.
While I own a guitar and an ukulele, they are now mostly collecting dust, hah.

During travels I like to remain low-key and humble, indulging myself into local culture, trying to avoid tourism, and just enjoying people, foods, nature, and views.

Moved across the planet in 2019

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Sydney is too expensive for low-cost travelling. Just trying to help one soul at a time.
