About Me

I'm in the U.S. for 3 weeks, having been fortunate enough to get a ticket to Burning Man with a bunch of awesome, quirky mates of mine.
I love listening to and sharing stories. I'll happily discuss architecture, travel, festivals, parties, relationships, philosophy, gender, history, queer stuff etc with you! At home, I'm usually organising events, parties and travels with my loved ones. I don't do drugs and drink only on special occasions, but still love to go to wild parties and have a stack of fun! I love dressing up and costumes and body paint, and massages and camping and glitter and painting and people...
My favourite travel memories are of finding elusive hot springs to visit. I love water and bathing, and will go to great lengths for a dip!
I'm also really into architecture (I studied it for 4 years and work in the industry), art, and history. I love dancing and bike riding and exploring the city and nature's scenery equally! Special shout out to rnb music lovers <3

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because some of the people I've met travelling have changed my life. It's cliched, but when you're a babyqueer struggling to accept themselves, it's true.
I want to keep meeting new people from all of the world and hearing your stories, because I'm always astounded by how much we have in common, despite growing up on the other side of the globe.
I'm especially interested in any queer/poly/kink events happening in your local city, and checking out the gay strip and local landmarks!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Just one?! One of the coolest memories, for me personally, was sitting in a gay bar in Istanbul around 3 weeks after the riots in 2013. There were still police-armed water tanks waiting to fire in Gezi Park, where we took a walk at 3am to get a cup of tea.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach watercolour or acrylic painting! Perhaps architectural sketching and take you on an architectural tour of your own city ;) I'm also full of info on queer/poly/kink stuff, and always down for a respectful conversation where we can learn about each other and our respective communites!
