About Me

I am very happy to host lovely/interesting people, please message me.有朋自远方来不亦乐乎


I like travelling, and seeing things and experiencing new things, and Im interested in the many different cultures,histories, books and people that there are. i like beer,wine,nice food.


i like to keep a balanced view when possible. I quite like Zhuangzi philosophy, perspectism, relativism, skepticism etc. Most things are enjoyable

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have 3 or 4 couches now,and floor space...half the year I live in the most beautiful bit of central Beijing. Opposite Confucius temple and Lama temple.

i try to keep an open house, and go to cs gatherings sometimes.

I like reading,i like anything. i enjoyed lost horizon, anything by f.scott.Fitzgerald, Laurie Lee's stuff, particularly works about his lone travels around spain.

i like experiencing different things.
dont really have specific interests,"the exhaustion of the passion is the beginning of wisdom" I hope thats true cos I dont devote myself to any hobbies!

travelling around West China (Gansu, Qinghai, Sichuan, Xinjiang and Tibet) was nice. Cumulative experiences of living in Beijing,Madrid,Yangshuo, Oxford is good...Accidentally meeting Emma Watson and the Dalai Lama on the same day was funny.
