About Me

carpe diem

"It has seemed to me that each year one should pause to take stock of himself, to ask where am I going? What am I becoming? What do I wish to do and become?
Most people whom I encounter were without purpose, people who had given themselves no goal. The first goal need not be the final one, for a sailing ship sails first by one wind, then another. The point is that it is always going somewhere, proceeding toward a final destination ...
Up to a point, a man's life is shaped by environment, heredity, and movement and changes in the world about him; then it comes a time when it lies within his grasp to shape the clay of his life into the sort of thing he wishes to be. Only the weak blame parents, their race, their times, lack of good fortune, or the quirks of fate. Everyone has it within his power to say this I am today, that I shall be tomorrow."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couchsurfing is absolutely incredible. I not sure anymore what traveling would be like without this site. Some of my best friends were found through this site, this community of likeminded people who have so much to teach and share!


I love to be active ... especially outside! I am fascinated by different culture. The more exotic, the better! Also have a love for music, I play my hand and the guitar.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

To me, the most amazing thing about the world is that just when you think you have seen something incomparably beautiful, you are blessed with other things ... things to admire just as much, if not more! Eternal surprises of the pleasant kind.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to speak a couple languages.
Love learning about different cultures.
I'll share my sandwich with you!
