About Me


To become the change that i want to see in the world.


I used to work as an "IT guy" who you call only when you are in trouble for 12 years but due to lots of stress and office life, i quit my job on May 2013 and started my "hopefully" lifelong travel journey. Now I'm traveling on a budget and would love to learn anything i bump on the road. Long term traveling makes a person know himself better and I'm still learning about myself. I don't see this as a inner journey to myself. Instead of seizing the moment, i let moment to seize me. Believe me, I am much more happier now :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm trying to host and Surf as much as i can.


1- First of all...remove your mask(if you have) and be sincere. Be as much as you are!.
2- You dont have to say things like "we want to visit your glorious beautiful city!!!".. They dont impress me =) And also i cannot make "a quick city tour" as i dont know anything about those spots :) But we can explore of course...
3- Remember that after you get in to my house, you will be my friends, not guests.
4- Please fulfill your profile. Even thou i want to help any kind of travelers, at least i expect just a little bit respect. I really don't like people who sees my help as an opportunity to stay for free and not even bother to leave a reference.
5- "LESS EXPECTATION,MORE HAPPINESS"... This will make the world a greater place.



Listening to people's stories. I want to hear more about your dreams, your aspirations. I'm trying to learn massage, cooking, building, gardening.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Asian and Bollywood movies. I love old classics like Indiana Jones, Superman, Rocky...Heh, well, I'm a 80's child, what'd you expect? :)

Music: Blues, Oldies like 60's,70's,80's. But nowadays i started to listen some very popular ones like Macklemore :) Maybe he's really good or i try not to accept i am getting older :D

Books: Adventure and biography ... Huckleberry Finn is still my favorite(since i was 12) =)
