About Me


Figure out the world.


Tavel is the way I learn, get inspiration from and get energy from.
Besides travel I enjoy arts, science and philosopy: I do pottery/photography/abstract drawing/ calligraphy etc...
I study science: I major in neuroscience but I also love biology/geology/mathematics/philosophy etc...
I'm also a big fan of traditional Chinese medicine. I study a lot about both eastern and western medicine. That is my life passion.
I also love tea and I cook good food.


carpe diem!!~

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to Nepal by myself when I was 17. The experience of coming back from Nepal to my home by land(southern china) during hot season was a great event to the adolescent me. It was really really hard! I faced lots of desperate moments and real life obstacles but also meet unexpected great people and miracles. It was solely a intriguing puzzle to me and I solved it.
But that was years ago...
um..... I need to find more challenges now.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to have conversations with different people just to talk about culture, philosophy, and travel experiences. To me, traveling is for learning. I have learned a lot about humanity, society, culture, people from my past traveling experiences. I would love to share my thoughts and my stories with you, and learn your stories as well.

What I Can Share with Hosts
