ABOUT ME

I love food and always experiment either in the kitchen or always venture with street food ..
Recently I travelled to cancun Mexico and did a small travel video on my GoPro. This video apparently inspired some people to take up solo travels and visit cancun (really it did ! I got messages from people thanking me for the video which is kinda cool.. Here's the link to me travel video

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host/ meet people who share similar interests or who are open minded.
they usually say I am a good host :P
May be because I like to host people. In turn I get to learn about different walks of lives, cultures, people, which I believe is priceless.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

SO far so good. Came across very interesting fun loving travelers, made many friends here. I have been hosting people, even when I am traveling, and met with many interesting guests. I am yet to experience being a guest.
I hope I get a chance to be be someone's guest soon..
