About Me

Hong Kong => Paris => London => Toronto => London => ????

ABOUT ME

I am from Hong Kong SAR, a former British colony. I originally moved to London with my parents when I was 10 but they have since moved back and I am with my sister in London. I studied Earth Sciences (in the main university in London)... which basically means I study the earth.

I use CS and I hitchhike mostly because I want to meet people and learn about their culture.

Basically, I love nature, meeting people, languages, life, earth, cultures, food, music.... I guess that is why I love Traveling

I hitchhiked from London to Hong Kong during the summer of 2013 and Couchsurfing saved my ass, so I owe a lot to this network!

SPEAKERS OF Spanish, French, Turkish, Hindi/Urdu, Mandarin and Russian are especially welcome as I speak these languages to some level and need to keep practising.

Hitchhiking and no hostels... not because I want to save money but because I want to meet PEOPLE.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I hope I can make some good friends while travelling. Spend some time with the locals and hopefully give them a few laughs! In return, I will give as much help as I can to those who cross my path even if my evil parents don't want me to host you.
