About Me

I’m now having a short break from my RTW trip and now live with my bf, Lucho, in Colombia.

CURRENT MISSION

Meeting new friends along the way on my around-the-world trip which is starting August 2018 till sometimes in 2022.

ABOUT ME

I'm open-minded, easy going, and full of useless knowledge and silly jokes that always make my friends roll eyes but laugh like crazy.
I love chit-chat although my English skill is not that good, but, trust me, I'm a good listener and laugher! Anyway, sometimes I also need to be alone just to arrange my thoughts, they are mostly nonsense though. lol

I love dancing but not so good at it. :P Let alone singing, I'm sure you'll prefer listening to Moaning Myrtle. lol

I like backpacking, hiking, camping and everything that makes me feel closer to nature.
About our beloved earth and nature, yeah, I love nature and I really concern about global warming, so I intend to travel the world without causing any kind of plastic rubbish, as much as I can! Let's do this together!!!

I always travel solo and love making friends along the way. Meeting new friends who also love traveling is like a bonus. :-) Learning new cultures and languages always make me fun. And CS is somehow the best way that can give me a lot of new interesting experience which any hostel couldn't.

Anyway, FYI, I'm not good at cooking. But I can cook something edible and recently I learn some cooking skill from my bf so Im better now. And it’d be nice to cook and share a mea or two together eh?!? ;-)

One more thing, I don't smoke nor drink any kind of alcohol. But I can definitely get drunk with just a glass of soft drink. I'm crazy sometimes. ;-)

PHILOSOPHY

"Be happy, be kind, be responsible, and be yourself!"
"What has to come out, has to come out!"
"Everyone should have a rights to end his/her life but not others."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far I really love my surfing experience which have been giving me good friends, and even my second mom!! Although I dont have any reference on hosting people but actually I hosting lots of travelers with my bf, Lucho, in Medellin, Colombia.

About hosting, I got many good and bad experiences as some travelers are really disrespectful, and they treat us like a hostel and expect us to provide them everything even toilet paper, well, it just ran out. So I’m, of course, not gonna behave like that when I surf at your couch.

Music, Movies, and Books

Books:
All sorts of books but I grew up with “Harry Potter” so it's the first English book I can think about.
“Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine” is my kinda book that always cheer me up and gave me hope about humanity.
“Girl with the dragon tattoo” and another 2 books of this series is my all-time favorite!
I'm manga lovers. Doraemon is my hero. One Piece is my fav.

Music:
Easy listening songs, any pop songs which can lift up my mood.
Language does not matter, I dont really care to understand the lyrics tbh.

Movies:
Any genres except Sci-fi or fantasy.
But I love Avatar because it's about nature.
Independent films always attract me.
Law abiding citizen is my all-time favorite.
Something that reflect the ugly truth of humanity is always my cup of tea.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My previous trips were simple but, truly, they're all amazing for me. ^^

My Everest base camp trekking trip in Nepal, 2013, was amazing, there's blizzard though. :P

Hike alone to Knivkjellodden for 8 hours round trip, the northernmost of mainland Europe alone in foggy and windy weather. It's amazing but I started to feel like the weather is really not on my side. T^T

10-day trekking through Altai region and sleeping in 3-class Trans Siberian train were fantastic and made me fall in love with Russia.

And diving in Galapagos was like heaven!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you Thai language if you're interested, it’s quite useless though.
I'd love to learn everything, culture, and language.
I'd like to share and to be shared travel experiences and fun stories with everyone.
I can also shard snacks and drink. :-)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Food, snacks, drinks, stories, and space in my tent if we do trekking together. :-)
