About Me

CS: https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/ricazaragoza
IG: whatkeepsricagoing

When traveling looking for people to explore the area with and maybe grab a meal or drinks.

Started hosting 2012 in Cebu with 2 other CS housemates and called our apartment - "The Hobbit House" turned "The Hobbit House High Gardens," When I moved back to Manila called the apartment -" The Hobbit House King's Landing. Story when you arrive.

Hosted not just couchsurfers but people I met while I was traveling or friends of those Ive hosted before.

- I work nights on weekdays mostly between 8pm til 7am manila time so in case you’re arriving late, unfortunately ill be in the office!

Also if you're sending a request of 1 night during a weekday will more likely decline, would be unfair to stay a night and your host wont be there (unless you're a friend of a friend that can vouch)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Curious, Adventurous. Most of the time I travel alone - but would meet up with old friends ive hosted or attend CS meet ups to meet more locals to get to know a place
