About Me

Hey, call me Mike.

I'm from Batangas province in the Philippines.

I finished a degree in Business Management and worked as an accountant for four years. However, in 2019, I made the decision to quit my job and work from home to take care of my mom, who had been fighting cancer. Sadly, I lost my mom in 2021, and now I'm on a journey across Asia to find healing and solace in new experiences and cultures.

Traveling has become more than just a way to explore new places; it's become a form of therapy, helping me to navigate through grief and rediscover joy in life. Along the way, I've met incredible people, heard inspiring stories, and learned valuable lessons about resilience and the beauty of human connection.

For me, the best form of hangout during my travels is engaging in deep conversations with fellow backpackers, hearing their stories, and sharing experiences. These conversations have a way of opening up new perspectives, fostering connections, and creating lasting memories.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I would like to meet other people, learn the culture and share some insights. Also to learn from their experiences.


I really find it awesome sitting near the beach, hearing the sound of waves and drinking beer.
