About Me


"I search, therefore I travel"


I am an avid traveler and photographer. I am struck by wanderlust all the time and constantly think about where's my next place to visit. I am easily inspired by the beauty of nature, amazing architecture, and any cultural experiences in foreign places. When I am not traveling, I enjoy planning for my next trip, reading up on travel tips and travel blogs, and try to explore new places within my own city. I am pretty open to new experiences and cultural differences, and I absolutely love meeting people from different parts of the world. Even though language might be a barrier, if we truly want to share and communicate, I think it will be okay.


This pretty much sums it up:

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. - Mark Twain

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In order to have a deeper understanding of the culture of a new place, talking to their local people is one of the best ways, and CS provides me with a platform to do so and to meet other like-minded individuals! I couldn't be more grateful to the CS community! In return, I would do the same for anyone that is interested in meeting a new friend in Canada.


Surfed someone's couch in Hamburg for my first time, and it was such a great and memorable experience! Hosted twice so far and the surfers I met were awesome people. I am looking forward to meeting more interesting and cool Couchsurfers!
