About Me

To describe me, I would say I love to meet people, travel, camp, bike and sleep under the stars. Every time I travel I’m amazed by the kindness of the people. What I love about travel is the freedom, the meeting and the happiness that comes from it.
My parents gave me a name Alfad and some friends call me Mas Alfat, I am still seeking path in life. I cannot judge myself if I am a good or a bad guy. But it's nice if can help others cause we are living in the same planet 'no matter what our race, religion, beliefs. We are all the same and I am truly welcoming everyone who want to learn new culture, make a new friend, and visit Yogyakarta, coz I live there. :)

If you want to stay with me,
PLEASE READ MY HOME DESCRIPTION! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Having the same idea of sharing, making friends and connections worldwide. Couchsurfing is a meeting place for people of different cultures, lifestyles and ideals. It’s a great way to meet people who are living in the same city as well. In Couchsurfing Community in Yogyakarta there is weekly CS Meeting and it is the best way to meet and share a lot of things. Well CS is not only for free accommodation but It's the way to gain a more local experience and I got plenty of friends from this platform and some might tell a good story worth to keep.

___
One thing that you should know when you're staying at my place is that you have to know how to behave, every city every country has different norms and rules/lows. Please don't hesitate to ask me anything that you need to know. After a few unpleasant experiences I feel the need to specify: During your stay please don't take advantage by inviting strangers or someone else to my place without my permission. My house is not a free hotel. If you just want to take advantage on Couchsurfing just only for free sleeping without interacting with the host, if you just stick with cellular phone and use dating apps while staying with me please don't send any request to stay at my place! Would be better for you to stay in the hotel or hostel. My apologies if I sound very negative, but I want to avoid having frustration over guests that don't respect my house rules. Other than that I'm very open-minded, easygoing, and fun guy. Anyway I don't care if you are rich or poor, black, white, red, yellow or brown, straight, lesbian, gay or trans, tall or short, slim or fat, pretty or handsome or ugly, alien or whatever If you're nice to me, I'll be nice to you.

Interests

I love talking about culture, especially cross culture understanding. For me different cultures make something interesting to learn. Humanity, tolerance, art, culture, identity, beliefs, love, happiness.
