So I have this new thing in my traveling life.

Right now in a phase I'm trying to get back in shape after long time of travel. :) So I hitchhike from gym to gym. If you happen to live near a cheap local gym, that's a HUGE bonus. :) Or if you know about one, even just an outdoor gym where I can go and have a quick workout or maybe you want a gym buddy, just message me:) I'll share everything you want to know if you just ask.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is actually happening right NOW!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I surf as much as possible, sometimes attend CS gatherings or hangouts with like minded people and also spread the word about Couchsurfing to everyone I meet on the road that is still unaware of this wonderful community.

Usually I'm traveling but, I am sometimes hosting people in my tent or if I ahppen to have a room once in a while...

I hosted (a lot of)people for over a month in Cebu

- I accept invites for couches, drinks, hangouts or trips so don't be shy. :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Started out surfing in February 2013 and I'm loving every second of it. This far I have surfed through , Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Brunei, across Japan, Hong kong, Macau, China, Taiwan, Philippines and right now surfing my way through Malaysia. Only had amazing experiences this far.

Don't Couchsurf a always because I really don't like planning and usually don't know where I'm going until I'm already there. Also I get hosted by random people on the streets or new friends I daily make during my travels. And also enjoy sleeping under the stars. :)

Interests

In the past the things I have found interesting has not always been the same things I have spent my time pursuing. I'm changing that now. From now on - what I WANT, what I NEED and what I DO are all one and same.

Music, Movies & Books

Too many to even begin listing...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Being born was a pretty big deal for me.

I inspired a Catholic priest in Philippines to start hitchhiking.

Spent a few days with two friends on an uninhabited island In Palawan.

Hitchhiked through tens of thousands of kilometers in Asia.

So many amazing things happens to me all the time when the way I travel and interacting with new people every single day, one regains new hope in humanity when witnessing all the hospitality people are capable of.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: -I can show you the true art of getting lost, anywhere... -I can take you with me hitchhiking. -ow to travel on a shoestring...or without any shoestrings at all! -I can teach you Swedish, Finnish, and some low grade Japanese and maybe even some Chinese. -I bake a pretty awesome pizza. -I have secret skills :)

Learn: I want to learn anything you can teach me, never enough. The more wird or uncommon skills, the better. :) But obviously your languages and foods. :) Really want to learn: -Diving -Jungle/Outdoors survival -Martial arts
