About Me


Broaden my perspective by new experiences and people.


Adventurous, curious, friendly, adaptable and energetic.


Time is the only irreplaceable resource.

The only way to stay young is to keep learning and the best way to learn is to do.

I travel not in search of new places but of new ideas.

A journey is best measured in friends and surprises, rather than miles.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Participating in local events and helping travelers (not just surfers) in my city, I have hosted some ppl out of couchsurfing.


Hanging out with surfers and some surfing in Taiwan.


I like to talk to people that is passionate and excited about their life and experiences (whatever they are).

Getting to know the most local/hidden parts of every place.

There's not an established way to do things, just find yours ... and keep improving.
