About Me

Just finished my dream and challenge of hitch-hiking Vietnam, now I'm back in Hanoi to work. But it won't be long until I hit the road and truly become a full-time nomad.

"Because in the end, you won't remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain." This is a quote by Jack Kerouac, the most inspirational writer in my life.

So here's a sneak peak into...myself

Born and raised in Hanoi, Vietnam. It is a very very sad and quaint city but it is exactly the reason why I'm infatuated with Hanoi. (and the food... yummy)

Hitched a humble total distance of 6000 km in Australia and Vietnam but the number won't just stay there. Dreaming of discovering all corners of the world where the natural beauties hide, the cultures blossom and the people are awesome.

Can't live without music, films and books. And oxygen.

Currently working in a rescue center. Would definitely recommend you to visit Cuc Phuong National Park which is where I work.

I'm very open-minded and up for the novelties. Love Zen and practice meditation everyday.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A HOST

At the moment I live in a village near the national park. Not quite sure if I can host but message me anyway.

IF YOU EVER GET A MESSAGE FROM ME

Know that I will be travelling on a low-budget by then, and every Vietnam Dong saved means a lot to me. So you giving me a hand is helping me to fulfil my goal of discovering the world. Believe me when I say I appreciate it.
