About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Used to be a vagabond for one year and a half on various walkabouts in Latin America. Now i want to settle down in my beloved Harbin for several years before departing another trip with my kid.

ABOUT ME

I have a couchsurfing wechat group, which may help you find a potential host in all tourist cities in China. My wechat is: 15045815770.

I volunteered in Africa.
Worked in Colombia.
Travelled for 15 months from USA to Antactica.
I have a newly born baby. So this year I can host surfers in harbin.

PHILOSOPHY

The world is big while life is short, so don't hesitate to venture your life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to share the stories of the passers-by. I have made a documentary with my hosts and friends in Latin America. I will work on another program with my surfers. By the way, I am writing my book/ journal about my trip. I believe the people I meet on the road are more impressive than the scenery.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first experience living with local families was in Tunisia (not couchsurfing), then I found it so interesting living with the locals. During my latin amrican trip, I enjoy couchsurfing a lot. When I am travelling, I benifit a lot from couchsurfing. When I come back to China, I will contribute to the community as well.
I think couchsurfing is a good way to know the locals and to meet new people.

I love animals. At Galapagos, scuba diving at 24m deep with shoals of hammerhead sharks and eagle rays and snorkeling with seals.
I volunteered in Tunisia, Africa
I worked in Colombia as an English teacher. I contribute to changing the fate of thousands of Colombian families.
