About Me




Quite and gentle, I'm nonchalant about most things and pretty easy going. I value nature, our earth, and the biodiversity and different cultures within it. I like to make music along with listening to it. I enjoy horseback riding and bike riding, yoga and dance, gardening and cooking. I can't say I excel in all these but give it all a try.


No more complaining, begin acting. It's not always about finding yourself, it's about building yourself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


It is an excellent and rewarding experience to learn and share with others of our homes.


My favorite things include cats, sleep, and sunshine. I very much dislike pickles, wet socks, and raisins. I appreciate those that are resourceful, waste not, and help others for no sake at all but to lend a hand.
