Hi there!

This is Alec Diao. I'm Chinese. Apart from my mother language and English, I'm also working on my German, obwohl mein Deutsch ist leider nicht so gut... aber selbstverstaendlich will ich weiter lernen!!

After graduating from school in Shanghai, I went to Africa working as a journalist. Incredible journey indeed! I was mainly in Lusaka, Zambia and I can declare that Zambia is my second home!!

I am currently doing my master's degree in Nuremberg, Germany since October, 2023. Im so excited and cannot wait to make new friends there!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My first encounter with CS was in year 2014, when I was attending a summer school in New York. I stayed with an amazing CS host in downtown Manhattan and what can I say, he is the best CS host in this universe! He took me around, we navigated the city, had some food and beer at some local restaurants where Hollywood celebrities often visit. Then days later when it was my 21 year birthday we celebrated together with some other CSer. Later on, I had some other CS experience in Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Xiamen, Hong Kong and Macau. It's a beautiful way of making new friends, getting to know different culture, sharing stories and exchanging ideas. I'm really enjoying it!!
