About Me


Not only travel countries from inside like locals not what they offer for tourist groups, but also treasure every encounter for it will never recur. (一期一会: その出会いは一生に一度きりの大切なもの)
There's no better way to know the country than to know it's people!

ESFJ-A PERSONALITY ( Read about that )

I recently moved to a tropical island in the south pacific called Guam where is a great location as a jump point into Asia and I plan to take full advantage of that. A lover of blue skies beaches…. Try to live in the very present of being, spontaneously following my heart.
Enjoy to meet people, be with people and feel connected.
To feel the moment, to feel new situations like adventures, unknown places, and keeping myself alive and share love.
I am an overgrown shaggy beard and scraggly hair with dreams of hippie vans and nomad life or tiny house in the woods with growing vegetable everywhere.
So still smoothly drifting from country to country.

Life is so precious, don't waste your time worrying! Enjoy the life!
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you did not do, than by the things you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. — Mark Twain

I also believe that somewhere deep inside every person is like me, no matter if he/she looks different, speaks a different language and has a completely different lifestyle.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The best way to get to know the country and culture is to get acquainted with its something deeply human that transcends cultural and geopolitical division of the world.

Find it amazing how much trust and mutual understanding people without even having met in person before! It will be true pleasure for all us to share parts of our planet and hearts :)

Types of People I Enjoy
People able to notice the small things in life, complete characters with thoughtfulness in their own means and methods.


Flow and wandering... nature and people… senselessness and absurd…
Anything can grab my attention, My life is engaged with the desire of knowledge.
vintage and antique, vintage fashion (from 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s).
Listening to people's stories. planting herbs (not very successfully though), reading books, shopping in second hand shops.
Camping and hiking... Snorkeling and bike-riding... Dark chocolate and wine... Again People!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing is yet to come!

Teach, Learn, Share

How to use chopsticks and cook/share Japanese cuisine (^O^)/ like making Japanese curry, Origami(Japanese paper craft), Okonomiyaki( Japanese style pizza) and sushi.
