I'm old fashioned and prefer old fashioned requests. For newbies, here are some guidlines: http://couchwiki.org/en/How_to_write_a_couch_request
Problem here: the list of coutries I've already traveled in is getting longer, but they don't dissapear from the list of countries I would like to travel.
NOT a world citizen
An environment person
Straight but gay friendly
A good walker
Riding the bicycle
Sun in Hamburg
Christmas markets and it's Glühwein
Collecting coupons, bonus points and miles
Coming out from the shower
My GPS on my phone
Broken beer bottles
Misspelling (though I do a lot, hard life for a spelling nazi)
Getting lost (It's not some adventure anymore if you've been doing it for your whole life)
being described as exotic
Those drunk people outside my window while I'm writing this
Solving Sudoku puzzles
Recognizing a movie from a short glance of a scene
Sleeping on planes
What I might do to you:
Ask you to do my dishes
Ask you not to do my dishes
Ask personal questions
Throw my personal life on you
Forget to remind you to buy a metro ticket when we go out, because I always have a semester ticket.
Don't be scared by my couch description, I'm actually quite nice :)
To host, or not to host, that is the question.

Music, Movies, and Books
I can play traditional Chinese music: erhu. I like music that can be sung out or be danced to. Classicals, latino, rock, jazz, pop, Asian indie, cheesy folks songs....etc.I've seen Nuovo cinema Paradiso at least 5 times. I like Alfred Hitchcok, early Zhang Yi-Mo movies before he went international, old films, Hollywood, Bollywood and others. Would like to see a Nollywood film given a chance.It's not the book type that limits my reading list, it's my time. Lawrence Block, Isaac Asimov, Jane Austin, Oliver Sacks, Carl Sagan, Stephan Zweig
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The people on my couch and the couches I surfed were all amazing.
Seeing hashish growing everywhere like a normal weed in Manali.
Having tons of Indian tourists lining up to have a picture with me.
Running around barefoot for 2 whole days.
The two-day-26-hour-bus from Manali to Leh in the indian Himalayas, it was painful trip, but the scenery worths all of it.
Seeing a sand mandala being destroyed.
Food in Hong Kong, Beijing, Italy, and vegetarian in India.
Despite the fear of heights, still walked 4 hours alone to go paragliding, and the final pony ride up the hills was actually more dangerous than the flight itself.
Moved a lot- Had 15 different adresses which I could actualy recieve mail, not including temporary accomodations for just a month. Only 5 of them involve my parents. Hosted in 4 different cities.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can do a bit of lots of things, but frankly I'm not sure what I can teach. I can play "erhu", a chinese string instrument, if you would like to learn that :)
I want to learn your cuisine, language, new tips to save the planet and save money.
I can cook, sing, dance with you.
