ABOUT ME

Outgoing Introvert

A bit shy at first... especially when I'm around people that I've just met... I'm still weighing their attitudes, reactions,chemistry etc... if my personality would click to them.. 👯‍♀️👯‍♂️
Also, I like being with people that are not concerned on being popular or those people that are not choosy on who they wanna hang-out with.

AND..what else can I say.... hmmm.. I LOVE to TRAVEL!!!!

====================================

Also, I would just like to remind myself on how lucky I am that I am able to visit places / countries even for just 2 weeks in a year and not be cranky on seeing other people do it for a whole year 😂. Thou I’m still hoping to be a digital nomad but don’t know how to start 🤔

====================================

PHILOSOPHY

Get out of my Comfort Zone and do travel with people that I've just met !!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I met someone in Seoul who introduced Couchsurfing to me and discussed what the community is all about.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I haven't tried to couch surf yet, I posted a couch request once but because of time constraint and location, I am unable to do it. It has been always difficult scheduling for a vacation 3 or 4 months in advance cause of work, that's why if given a chance for a vacation, I grab it .. then book for an accommodation near the places that I want to see.

However, I have enjoyed meeting CS people...... I have joined several events on places / countries that I go to. With Couchsurfing I was able to hear a lot of travel stories and do activities that I want like, camping, diving, spelunking, hiking, surfing, going to beaches etc.. and some of the items in my bucket list have been realized cause of these Couchsurfing activities.

The interesting part is meeting new people from different countries with different backgrounds :-)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Have eaten exotic foods such as tarantula, grasshopper, silk worm, frog, ricerats, scorpion, beetle and for others the Balut(steamed eggbryo)

Teach, Learn, Share

I wanna LEARN on how to easily be comfortable with people that you've just met. I mean.. that you'll be arriving alone in a gathering and you know basically NO ONE. Isn't it a bit scary and yet exciting?!? cause you wouldn't know how will you present yourself to other people. Do you need to be a person that you're not or just be accepted as you are:o) Anyways, it's still a question in my mind ....

What I Can Share with Hosts

I’m a clean person so I would never ever make a mess of your place. I can also cook our number 1 dish in the Philippines which is adobo (just to present our country to you).
