Join Couchsurfing to see Bob’s full profile.
Hi! Nice to meet you:) I am Bob Pang, a backpacker and musician from Hong Kong. I'm backpacking and vlogging around Africa with my violin since Aug 2022!
Last five years, I kept traveling around Asia. Volunteering and jamming music are always the most enjoyable thing during my trip. I've travelled around China and Taiwan for music exchange, around Mongolia and Malaysia for volunteering. Every time when I staying at host or hostel, I feel great to talk with people with different background, knowing other's stories and sharing my stories was always meaningful and warm, which became my passions for traveling.
I mainly work in music industry. Teaching violin and guitar student is my main job (some keyboard and music theory student lol). Also I enjoy gigging in bar, restaurant, wedding party so much, even busking on street. Once I have chance sharing my music with others, it will be great. Please check out my live with my band here: https://youtu.be/CxERG_7NtWs
Also I was a 14-years boy scout and a current scout leader. I am proud of serving our society as a scout members, which can help someone indeeds. And Water sports (kayak, dragon boat, wind surfing) are also my hobby. I'm a kayak racer when I was in secondary school. Although I didn't have training fo years but I still enjoy kayaking in the sea, I am still doing that when I now. It could be great if I have chance to play kayak around the world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Doing work camp in Mongolia. I fly to Ulaanbaatar for a month-long service, doing volunteer teaching for local orphans, and do farming work with them. We builded up an amazing relationship. After our teaching, they got a better school offer, also they learn how to stay with others too. Really a lifetime memorable memory.
