About Me


I believe that meeting people makes our lives more significant.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you feel like we have something in common and have potential to spend great time with each other :)

I think having great friends is one of the most important things in our lives and in order to do that we gotta meet!!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Well, it was a little difficult to surf & host until I got the first few references but once I got used to it, I met so many cool people through CS

I actively take part in CS meetings and I promote this way of travelling and meeting other people to those who would enjoy to join the group and their time with their guests/hosts.

The first time I used CS was when I visited Mexico and Peru last summer. I also made many friends through CS while I was traveling in Latin America and I really appreciate the fact that everybody I met were so helpful and friendly. Both through CS and other friends, I have hosted several people at my house in Japan and at my apartment in US

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was just 15 and traveling by myself for the first time. I missed the flight to Japan and got stuck in the Dubai airport in UAE. I spoke BAD English and people there spoke English with strong arabic accent. I had almost no money with me and I thought I was going to have to live there for the rest of my life. Luckily I found a young man working at airport counter and gave me a ticket for free!! He said "You are still young. Everybody makes mistakes and deserves the second chances." Ashamed of me not even remember his name but I just want to say I'm still thankful and it made me want to help other people who are having problems.

Teach, Learn, Share

Are you interested in learning 日本語 (Japanese)? I have some experience being a tutor for Japanese classes at high school and college. Japanese grammar and writing kanjis (these guys: 漢字) are complicated but pronunciations are quite easy :)

I've been learning Spanish and Portuguese since college. I've been always wanting to speak and to improve them but not many people around me know those languages. If you do speak Spanish or Portuguese, please help me, por favor!

I started learning English quite a while ago but its pronunciations are never easy to me (comparing to this, Spanish & Portuguese pronunciations are much easier!!). So I would appreciate if you could help me out with this as well :)

Even other than these three, I'm interested in so many languages such as French, German, Finnish, Polish, etc.. I just never had a chance to learn them. So I would love it if you want to teach me :P
