update: As i am currently living/working in Saudi Arabia and staying in company-provided accommodation for employees, i am unable to host people in my flat as it is not allowed (very strict regulations).
I am able and willing to meet up/hang out preferably during my off days on weekends (Fri & Sat) or if i dont have any online classes going on, i can also meet during workdays (except Tuesday, my busiest day of the week. LOL!).
im a regular "plain jane", low maintenance,adventurous, very independent, shy. i often find myself quite content just to listen to other people talk or just silently observe things around me. (But i can be quite talkative too, sometimes. 😂).
i dont smoke nor drink alcohol nor do night-outs and parties.
i prefer nature, the outdoors, and the bucolic life over urban comforts.
im a typical provincial person, and sometimes get "scared" and overwhelmed by big cities.
i am most happy and comfortable in mountains, rural areas/villages, deserts, caves, or wild camping.
i am NOT into dating or anything along that line, so please, do NOT send me any request nor accept my couch request if you have other motives besides cultural exchange. :-)
