About Me

Adventurous, out-going and friendly person. Mates would describe me as reliable and open-minded.

Currently studying in Indonesia for the year (2017) in Yogyakarta (Semester 1) and Bandung (Semester 2).

I am learning Bahasa Indonesia and my subjects are focused on International Relations and Law. I'm always looking for chances to improve my language abilities and cultural understanding, while having a good time.

Love to travel and meet new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meeting locals and seeing what life is really like, rather than just visiting tourist attractions.

Also to make new friends and have fun. Of course, it also helps me stick to my budget while traveling.
