About Me

The pandemic is the cause of my long absence in Couchsurfing. I am back and I hope to be able to host and meet surfers once again :)


The truth is, you can say that I’m black or white, brown or yellow, but my blood is red just like everyone. I shake hands, bow, high fives’, fist bumps’ and hug when i meet people. I say Hi, Hello, Ni Hao, Como estas, Wie Geits, Konichiwa, Sawatdee kharp and Assalamualaikum. What can i tell ya? I am just a world citizen. :)


Breathe and take a step back. Look at yourself. You are human and you can be anything and everything. Do not hate because someone broke your heart, or because your parents split up or your best friend betrayed you. Do not concern yourself with things you cannot control. Cry when you need to, then let go when it’s time. Don’t hang on to painful memories. Let go of things that are in the past. Forget things that aren’t worth remembering. Stop taking things for granted. Stop taking life for granted. Live for something. Live for yourself. Fall in love. Fall out of love. Fall in love. Fall out of love. Do this over and over until you know what it really is to love someone. Question things. Tell people how you really feel. Sleep under the stars. Follow your dreams. Travel. See the world with an open mind and an open heart. Live your life to its full potential!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I help :)

I have organised massive monthly dinner meet-ups, walking tours, self-defense classes, night walks and many more.

I love to see people getting together & strangers becoming friends, therefore seeing them coming together ignoring all boundaries simply makes it all worthwhile.


Couchsurfing changed it all. Couchsurfing has made me see the world. Through cultural experiences, I began to see and understand people beyond their skin, their beliefs and status. You should always believe the good in people and miracles do happen, and for me, Couchsurfing is the miracle.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

To be able to wake up every morning is AMAZING

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you a million and one things and I am interested to learn from you a million other things. Teach me something, and I will surprise you with something :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

If you host me, I can teach you some self defensive skills or give you a really good massage which will make you scream or sleep :)
