About Me

Call me Vinny, I'm an easy going guy who loves to connect with people from all countries / cultures. I am culturally obsessed and love to gain insights into local cultures. I've travelled around Asia & Europe. Though I've had my fair share of partying and a hedonistic lifestyle, I live for deep meaningful conversations and consciousness expansion

I've recently uprooted my life from Asia to embrace the nomadic lifestyle.

I am going to California to write my first novel. A couple short stories in the works too.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet and connect with open minded people. I truly believe the only way to see what a place is all about is to experience through the eyes of the locals.

A few friends of mine recommended couchsurfing as they have travelled all around the world and swear by it. I'm new here and this is the next chapter in my journey.
