About Me


to laugh, to enjoy, to live


I've seen a few places. I've passed through a few places. I've lived in a few places.

I will see a few more place. I will pass through a few more places. And I will live in a few more places.


Smile, laugh, learn, share and enjoy every minute of life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed the world (well, part of it) both officially and unofficially through CS and have always looked back on those moments as being my favorite.
