About Me

***IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ "MY HOME" PART AND PUT THE SENTENCE "I READ AND UNDERSTOOD" ON THE REQUEST***

FRIENDSHIP is born at that moment when one person says to another: 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one."

Travel mean "GO TO THE FUTURE" & "DISCOVER CULTURE BY FOOD" and it is my PASSION.

"A lot of people go through life without experiencing it, we are all taught to follow a certain path in life, you know, get good mark, go to university, get a job, raise a family, and that's life, right ? But what would happen if we left everything to create your own way?" Piano Around The World https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHvVsameREw

After 6 years working as an IT executive in multi-international company, I decided to quit my job in 2016, back to my hometown and started my own business to challenge and improve myself:
Full-time job: Business Owner.
Part-time job: Real Estate Investor.
Volunteer job: CouchSufing Tour Guide.

I am a business man who is in love with fishing and I am traveling around the world with a mission: looking for my next business ideas.

I used to travel with my friends, but now all of them got married. Every time I asked them to travel with me.
They answered:"I am busy with wife&kids, can you wait me?"
"What ?_? How long ?_? 18 years later ?_?".
I met some wonderful solo travelers through CouchSurfing and they encouraged me to step out of my “comfort-zone”. That is my story how I became a solo traveler.

I was born and raised in the urban area but I really love agriculture life. I have a small backyard with some chickens, 1 Papaya tree and a stupid dog >.<

I am living in Thu Dau Mot city, Binh Duong province (25km away from Ho Chi Minh city). I usually go to Ho Chi Minh city to hang out with CS friends.

I have a private room and a couple of couches to host CouchSurfing friends.

Send me a massage and discuss how can I help you

My mom was so excited to prepare Ao Dai (Vietnamese traditional dress) for her and lucky money as well. It was such wonderful experiences.
