About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Balkans!!

ABOUT ME

My close German friend once told me that I was a very bad example of Thai people. Well, being Thai in his term means; polite, kind, quiet or introvert, which are totally different from who I am. I changed his perception all around and he always blames me about it --- I just can't help being myself hahaha :/

Anyway, he told me so because he knew me, but for the rest of the world, I think the best way to know someone is to meet up in person and get to know each other -- it's the ONLY way. How do you know what idea you're going to have about anybody else till you meet him/her? The answer is, you DON'T.

PHILOSOPHY

Christopher McCandless: Happiness [is] only real when shared.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've heard about CS since I was in Thailand. Back in the days, I thought it was freakin' cool idea, but I hadn't paid attention about it that much, I didn't expect that it'd come along my way, I was too busy with myself.

Until I got a message from my sister, she told me that she'd come to Poland for a seminar and she'd like to travel around central Europe, and it was when my journey has begun ...
