About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Just do it!

ABOUT ME

Hola!!!My nerves of travelling are always stimulated through such a multi-cultural area, meeting new people will be one of the most important thing which lights up my day!

Smile brings power!!! So "^_______^" is the expression which mostly appears on my face, I always stay calm and be happy. Personally I love to be peaceful and cheerful - the only way to enjoy your life more, isn't it??

Photography is one of the biggest interest in my life. I would be very glad to meet anyone who loves the nature or share the same interest with me. If you can bring and show me the remarkable or secret areas of your town, or of your country would be very lovely!!

I treasure the friendship with all the people I met a lot and I wish to keep contact to every hosts I have come along to :)

Wanna meet me?

PHILOSOPHY

I am ready to take the challenge of coming second in my life - always be ready, be calm, be wise and be patient to all the challenges, make all impossibles to become possible!

"You'll never walk alone" is my motto taught by my beloved Liverpool FC. I will always trust people I met, believe all the best and treating them the best I can. As I believe people will seldom treat you bad with no reasons. I can always receive good if I offer the best. This is my life style.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Sorry to say I *CANNOT* offer a couch at this moment due to the lack of space and I'm living with my family right now but I will be very glad to meet for a coffee or some walks in the city (or even a short trip!!) have some chats and fun together :)

I would like to meet CSers as many as I can, meeting with the person who can show me the core culture of their country and I will do the same as well.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I enjoy visiting every unique couch as they reflect part of the personalities of the host, even some country cultures!!!

And now I am happy to have a chance of meeting different CSers in the city by attending some activities and meetings after I had fully settled down in Cork city =)

The most special experience was in Leiden (Holland) - stayed in a pub called "The Couch" with lots of funny CSers over there enjoying music, cigarettes, wine and jokes. I left a Nijntje cartoon on the wall before I left!! The first time I have to climb with my bag to the roof to find my sleeping place, loads of fun and it was really unforgettable!!!
