I first met Merlina in Istanbul, at the big New Years TB meetup.

Why are you vouching for them?

Merlina is such a warm and sweet person. With her big smile, you just have to like her immediately. We spent some time in Istanbul, exploring the city, and then I was really happy that we got an opportunity to travel together through China in Oct2016.
Merlina has a fun personality, contagious laugh, very adventurous spirit, and is a great travel companion!
Looking forward to our next adventure and hoping it comes real soon! :)

I am sorrry to make this vouch late. I met Reinard and his daughter in Ha Noi for dinner. He brought some traditional sweets from his home for me, that was so nice of him. I let him try a traditional food in Ha Noi, it called 'pho cuon', he and his daughter really liked it. We ad a very great talk. Later, we walked for awhile around the old quarter, I helped him to find some souvenirs.

My fiance and I met Paul in the Netherlands when he showed us around his town of Den Bosch.

Why are you vouching for them?

Paul is a pretty cool dude. He is very friendly. He gave us a great tour of Den Bosch and knew a lot about his city. He was also a great translator, explaining things to us that we didn't understand. He also showed me around different parts of Netherland and parts of Holland. I am very glad I met him. I enjoyed the Netherlands much more since I had a great guide. Hopefully one day he will come to America and I can be a gracious host to him.

While in Barcelona, March 2016.

Why are you vouching for them?

I went to Barcelona in March 2016 to run marathon and explore a bit this beautiful city. Before I went I checked if any TB would be around at the same time. I was lucky Barcelona was also in Tim's itinerary. He happily accepted idea of meeting in the evening for some tapas. He was also exploring city during the day so we had much to share. Like with all TB -talking about travels, places seen already or yet to be seen was so easy with Tim from the start, although we met for the first time.He is easy going, happy to stroll at night through Barcelona's streets just to find some good tapas bar. We haven't traveled together but Im sure he would be a good companion.
