About Me


Finding my own voice


Born in a tiny village in North China, without running water nor electricity, miraculously survived, surprisingly grew up, lived in the UK for 10 years, France 2 years, now in Italy.

I am a dreamer, maybe, but I am not the only one:) My passion for singing, writing, cooking, teaching has never decreased yet survived and thrived after turns and toils...


There is no relationship but stories, we are THE ONE.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Like to get to know people, quality not quantity
like to show/share with people whatever is available
To organize local events for travelers to participate, such as a Cafe Afternoon
To share, to listen, to learn...
offer any skills to help out with whatever I could offer...


Had the first one in Dec 2010, and certainly going to have more in 2011!
