About Me

DISCLAIMER: IF U ARE TRYING TO LOOK FOR SEX OR BEHAVE LIKE A PERVERT, PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME. IT IS EXTREMELY DISGUSTING AND PREDATORY. I AM WRITING THIS DUE TO PREVIOUS BAD EXPERIENCES.

Live and enjoy the moment! Positivity is key to everything! Flow like nature! Everything will be fine and work out!

Hi there! I'm Jesse from New Zealand who's currently on a gap year and exploring Europe and other places. Would love to meet wonderful people, explore captivating places and gain intuition and knowledge from exploration. Very knowledgeable and would be very keen to learn and share knowledge and vibe with others. Deep conversations are my favourite pass time!

Personally speaking, i am not a tourist but a traveler and explorer. I not only explore touristy things but also the local life and scene and i love to immerse myself in the local culture and also meet locals. Travelling isn't just about going to tourist sites and taking photos before posting them to Instagram but is about truly discovering what a place really is. Tourist sites don't fully convey the real place's character! This is why i love Couchsurfing! Couchsurfing is a platform that allows you to connect with locals and other people, making friends and helps with cultural exchange and makes lifelong and memorable memories. It is a place to gain life experience and to have fun. The free accommodation aspect of CS is only a thing on the side and I don't really consider the free accommodation to be the main reason to why I'm on CS.

I'm a young traveller meaning that I'm curious, careless and very keen to learn.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Would love to meet new people and would love to vibe with others. Couchsurfing to me isn't a platform for free accomodation or simply crashing into other's homes. It's a platform that is used to connect and bond with others and build and establish unique human connections. It is used to build amazing and memorable life events. I love sharing stories, interests and memories with other people.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

---Travelled in London and spent little to no money on the food i got by using the app Olio :)

---Went a free concert of my favourite band in London!

---London being the cheapest place I've been to in my travels so far due to all the life hacks of me getting free food, accommodation, concerts and discounts for public transport and more!

--Lived in London for under 4£ a day

--Discovering the YouTube channel The Hack Official which helped me save hundreds or even thousands.

---At one time owning 4 phones (don't ask me why it's so embarrassing 😭😭😭😭. Financial mishaps). I still own three of them lol

---Accidentally crossing the French-Italian border without a passport 😱😱😱😱

--Hitchhiked in Morocco, Turkey, Macedonia, Georgia and Armenia! 👍👍👍

--Visited the non touristy parts of Turkey where no one had ever seen a foreigner before. The Turks were legit going up to me and taking selfies with me since this was their first time seeing an Asian in their lives

--Visited the Armenian Azerbaijan border aka one of the most dangerous borders in the world due to frequent armed clashes between the two sides. I even saw nagarno karabakh/Artsakh from the border! 😱😱😱😱😱😱😱
