Hi, I studied photography just to be able to speak intelligently about plain things, and I work freelance in agriculture and animal rescue because I appreciate life and the outdoors. At the moment I'm traveling in China for the first time in five years and my favorite cities are Guiyang and Shenyang.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I have hosted quite a bit in Amsterdam, Taipei and Japan. Simply because I had the space, be it in squats, studios, or sharing a pitched tent in a hail storm. I enjoy meeting up with former guests on their sides of the world, and also picking up recipes.
I've learned some taijiquan and I'm still trying to learn how to play saxophone.
