About Me

An ordinary guy who enjoys languages, traveling and knowing different cultures. ☺️ I traveled to 60 countries so far and have lived in 8 of them.

I would describe myself as a minimalist. I in general do not have a huge desire for material things and enjoy living a simple life. At the same time, though, I am curious about the world and human mind. I am also passionate for cooking (I’m a good cook 👨‍🍳) and recently have been learning how to grow home plants 🌱 (although I’m still a beginner).

I can easily spend a whole night in detective series. And I enjoy exploring places on a bike. Sometimes I spend a whole afternoon just to find a geocache, and some might think of me as a fool but I love it! Having traveled around the word as a backpacker, I would consider myself quite a conversationalist as well!

Looking forward to meeting you, my potential friend from other parts of the world!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

This site is amazing. I've done hosting, surfing, meet-ups, and also write to people to hang out. Endless wonderful encounters and i am glad that with many of the CSers I became lifelong friends, caring about each other and always staying in touch. CS is surely awesome and means a lot to me! :-)
