About Me


Happiness and Peace for all!


Spiritual but not religious; I don't like politics and I'm not materialistic. I hope to see the world exactly as it is; do my best and be happy.

I hope to see you soon.


Be the change you would like to see in the world.... Or just be yourself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have two leather couches and they are available.


I have surfed on more than 40 couches and hosted more than 40 couch surfers. It's good to keep it balanced.
