About Me

CS: https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/ricazaragoza
IG: https://www.instagram.com/whatkeepsricagoing/?hl=en

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 9pm til 5am manila time so in case you’re arriving late, unfortunately ill be in the office! (unless there's another surfer the same time you're arriving)

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 or a returning guest)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Best way to meet people while traveling
