About Me

I am currently in first year of university at Uwindsor In Ontario Canada and completing my degree in BSC Eletrical Engineering. I am only 19 years old but I have properly "backpacked" across Tanzania and Kenya in 2018. I've been to a few other countries but they were not proper backpacking trips. Since I'm only 19, im sure many crazy life time experiences will come. As of right now, I think the most craziest thing that happend with me was when I was in Tanzania I was not carrying my passport as I left it at my hotel for the day. As I was roaming around Dar Es Salaam (Biggest city of Tanzania) the cops stopped me randomly and asked for my passport just to check if I have a visa. Fast forward - im sitting in the back of a police truck and being threatned by cops to either pay 100 USD or spend a few nights in jail. I paid the 100USD and was well on my way. Not too crazy right? Give it time as I grow and experience more travelling, I'll probably have more crazier experiences. In my free time I like to play soccer, hangout with friends, search for travel destinations, etc. I like to talk a lot and have long conversations and get to know about people customes, backgrounds, and culture. One of my life goals is too try to travel to every country or travel to as many countries as I can. I look forward to meeting fellow CSers. I also forgot to tell while writing this summary of myself, about a crazy incident that happend with me in Zanzibar while partying on the beach with strangers, but I've decided to save that story for when I meet fellow couchsurfers. Cheers!
