About Me


To share travel stories and find commonality!


Easy-going and very considerate. I have many brothers and sisters.


Whenever I have trouble deciding if I should do something, I think of myself on my deathbed and ask myself what I would regret most, and then suddenly everything becomes quite clear to me =)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate with conversation, coffee, drinks and watching the World Cup!


I am new to the experience of couch surfing, but not to experience of meeting people and traveling. I have traveled all around the world - Brazil (for the 2014 World Cup!!!) Zambia, Zimbabwe, Costa Rica, Panama, Amsterdam, Thailand, Turkey, Bangladesh, Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, India, currently traveling all over South East Asia, and I lived in Japan for 1 year!!


Documentaries, Films, Futbol, Dancing, Various types of coffee, music and reading novels and nonfiction material! I also love traveling and meeting new people.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've sat on the edge of Victoria Falls, rode on the back of a motorcycle through the Rocina favela in Rio De Janeiro during sunset, I've filmed a movie in the rural villages of Bangladesh as a sound guy, and I watched Argentina beat Netherlands in the 2014 World Cup Semi-final, and I've lived all over Japan!
