About Me

Hello, my name is Gary "Surreal" Lawrence. 以前我的中文名字是雷锋,但是现在我叫劳伦斯。

I am a Freerunner, Parkour athlete from London. I live in Chengdu . I am currently studying Tourism Management 旅游管理.

I would describe myself as a funny. energetic, sarcastic, cheeky. I like to be straightforward and honest. I love learning and sharing philosophies, life lessons and movement.

I have been living in China over 4 years. I have lived in the Beijing, Sichuan, Chongqing and Guangdong provinces.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like the idea of meeting new people and learning from each other. I believe true family is the friends you make in your lifetime :)

Being in a hotel is powerful, but boring.


My life is influenced by expressive and creative movement which for me includes Freerunning, Parkour, Acrobatics, Street dance . I do like to chill and listen to music. I love Halo Reach on Xbox 360 or watch nature documentaries
