About Me

Note: As a rule of thumb, I mostly interact with Couchsurfers with at least 5 references

Instagram: shahen_balyan

Digital Nomading since summer 2023. Originally from Armenia.

Currently, I am on a mission to explore as many countries as possible by the time I reach 30 :) And what I mean by exploring is that I want to live a certain time in a place and feel the local vibe of the city/country before moving somewhere else. Also, it's always lovely to make new connections and friends. This, in short, how I love to explore places :)

Other than that, I am a guy from IT management that loves chess, poker and any other intellectual activities. I dedicate my free time to gym, bicycle rides and hiking. I am very social in real life, and always down to do cultural exchange and meet interesting people or just make adventures happen :)

Thus, feel free to ping me :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Cause it's the best platform to meet the coolest people ever. I am grateful to Couchsurfing as I've met some of the most amazing people in my life via the app, and it's a privilege to be a part of this big family.

PS. Not using it as a dating app and recommend you the same. There are much more interesting things here!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1. The one time I went to 80 km hike with no connection in the middle of nowhere. Still alive and with so many memories.
2. Survived two weeks in Cairo. For those who know.
3. Also, once passed by a very dangerous neighbourhood in Rio on my own and survived through it. Oh, and believe me, it's scarier than anything. Still proud!

Teach, Learn, Share

We can do whatever comes to our mind as long as it is fun and interesting for both sides. City breaks, bars, pub crawls, hikes, tours or just conversations - anything is fun with the right people!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Good time, tips and recommendations about things I am good at, meaningful conversations, teach playing chess and just vibe

Countries I’ve Visited
