ABOUT ME

I like to travel, cook, learn about cultures, love music and books. Exploring more cultures, food, coffee and humanity is what my current mission is.

PHILOSOPHY

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am hosting people and reaching out to other CSers for travels, meets and conversations.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have had very good stay in Phoenix, my first CS experience. CS has opened a new dimension for the rest of my life, specially understanding how we as humans are exposed to the rest of humanity and the fear of being strangers and still being accommodating as humans, connecting with each other through commonness and differences is what excites me the most.

Interests

i like cooking, traveling, riding my bike around. sitting down at a coffee shop for hours listening to music, people watching, reading a book...

Music, Movies & Books

I like most of cinema, favorite directors would be Mizoguchi, Bergman, Kurosawa, Tarantino, Scorcese. Latest favorite movie was
