About Me


Ever curious to see different perspectives and be exposed to different ways of living/ thinking


Right now I feel uneasy staying in one place for very long. After a year of travelling and living in Europe I am curious and determined as ever to keep experiencing new cultures and meet new people with different perspectives and ideas about life.


I feel a need to first collect other peoples' before creating my own.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Would love to host some lovely people as soon as I have a permanent living space!


Met some brilliant and very interesting people so far :)


People- those who have a different perspective, see in different light, have a passion
Food- everything ;)
Art-should "disturb the comfortable, and comfort the disturbed"
Language- I feel it is one of the major barriers to understanding a different culture fully and hope to learn more!
Film- anything that makes you forget/ challenge your beliefs and reality.

Film: Amelie, Into the wild, Spirited Away (the films of Hayao Miyazaki in general), The motorcycle diaries, The place beyond the pines, Lotus Eaters, Enter the Void, Drive, Only God Forgives
