About Me

I’m Cheng from Shanghai, China. I’d lived in a small city in Germany as a student for 10 years and moved to Amsterdam to live with my boyfriend 5 years ago. Currently we provide a couch/bed in our flat for max 2 surfers (please no kids) which is located in Amsterdam West, near Westerpark.

During my student time I traveled most neighboring countries of Germany, all the wine regions in southwestern Germany and of course in Alsace as well.

For vacation I would prefer mountains over beaches, and I’m absolutely hooked for a hike on the Alps or a road trip through mountain passes in Swiss, Austria, France and Italy.
