About Me


See the world in order to live in it


Born in Hk and moved to England at the age of 7!
Graduated from uni, worked to save some money and off i went into the deep unknowns of asia.
I enjoy meeting others on my travels and not to mention a few drinks from time to time.
Have been on the road since may '09 and don't intend of returning home anytime soon :P
Have been through Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Malaysia, China, Korea and then taught english in Japan for a while, then wandered through South America for half a year and somehow ended up working in China


To live in the world first you must see it :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
