About Me


I've recently returned to Manila after living in Japan/Europe for about 6 years. I still travel as often as I can.

Upcoming trips:

Japan (Kyushu)
Canada (Vancouver)
USA (New York, New Jersey, Chicago)
Peru (all over!)


I'm a lawyer currently on a "work break" and taking up Masters of International Law in Germany. I've been living in Europe for about 14 months now. Before this, I lived in Japan for three awesome years.


When there's a will, there's a way!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've heard about CS from friends, how fun it is and how it heightens one's travelling experience, and thought I'd check it out myself!


I enjoy Asian series, good books, travelling, good eats, and most of all good company.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've dressed up, and walked down the streets of Kyoto, as a Geisha. I've scuba dived, and thought that was a lot of fun. Probably the most amazing thing I've seen during my travels is the Sapporo Snow Festival in Hokkaido, Japan - I recommend everyone see that mind-blowing festival at least once in their lives!
