Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN 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! Met some of my best friends through CS and I really like the community here.
I've hosted a number of my CS hosts - the world is small, what goes around comes around ;)
I enjoy Asian series, good books, travelling, good eats, and most of all good company.
- scuba diving
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!
What I Can Share with Hosts
I am passionate about Filipino culture and history and I am an incoming Filipino diplomat, I will be happy to tell you about it. I also love to cook and eat, and if there is an opportunity I will gladly cook Filipino food, especially for those who have never tried it. .
