About Me

Hi, I'm an electrical engineering student who likes budget travelling and meeting locals.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My brother used to always repeat the same mantra while travelling: "Act like the locals". I don't remember where he got it from, but it is a rule I try to stick to while travelling. I believe that acting like, and being among the locals will give you a much more truthful and interesting view of a country than visiting the tourist hotspots.
