About Me

Currently traveling in Japan and back in Manila by November. Korea end of the month for a week with my sister! Looking for people to explore the area with and maybe grab beers and party too!

Started hosting 2012 in Cebu with 2 other CS housemates from Philippines and Spain - Junior and Joel, we called our apartment - "The Hobbit House" turned "The Hobbit House High Gardens," then "The Hobbit House Winterfell".

When I moved back to Manila called the apartment -" The Hobbit House King's Landing." Hosted not just couchsurfers but backpackers I met while I was traveling or friends of those we hosted before. By the way I work at night, but free during weekends.

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

Id like to meet the locals and know more about a place from their perspective, not through brochures. I often travel alone, hence would also be nice to meet other travelers and get to explore a place with other people.
