About Me


On the road to spiritual


Make long story short,

I graduated from university 2 years ago. I thought I was about to travel for 1 year but ended up 2+ years

Started my trip in Africa, got really sick on my way but it didn't stop me then I continued to Latin America for 1 year. These years, I have learned Spanish with the people, dancing salsa and bachata on the street.

This November I moved to Luxor and fell in love with this place so decided to stay here. An ancient piece of land.


My plan is no plan and life plans itself

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hello dear hosts, when I am with you guys I try to be a good guest:) That means treating your place as if it was mine and not abusing your kindness. I can also help around the house. I can buy food to cook & eat together. If you host me, I will post a reference.


CS brought me 100 ways of life. I was invited to Chilean wedding, lived in African refugees or being told the war history of Syria.
I have witnessed the Ghanian election, or the mountain life in Madagascar.Indeed, those fabulous chapters won't happened if I stayed in youth hostel.


Kayaking, snorkeling, hiking, a little bit surfing, music and watching movies(indie),psychology, books that validate the crazy ideas floating around in my head, tequila and beer (or both),dancing salsa, bachata any Latin dance, being methodically spontaneous

Music, Movies, and Books

Watching different movies as flipping into different scene, culture and life. I choose mostly indie movies from all over the world. Or some meaningful documental films. They are sparkling inspiration for my travels.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I kayaked along Palau island(a beautiful island located in Pacific Ocean) for 4 days which make a grand tour circle on my canoe.

Been hitchhiked more than 700 KM from rural Chile to Argentina in one day

Worked in an isolated island without electricity supply as a logger

The Indian Children when I was volunteering in The North of India.
They were the purest thing I ever seen in my life!!!

The Good food in Thailand!

The islands of Greece, Sunset in Oia

The butterflies flying around in rural area of Burkina Faso

I got spiritual connection with an ascent tree in Voodoo Sacred Forest, Togo.
