Join Couchsurfing to see Gum’s full profile.
I’m from Hong Kong who started the journey since Dec 2021. Can’t live without mountain or ocean
always follow my heart and Do what I Love.
To explore the world and meet more amazing people, that’s the reason why I keep travelling.
Gumgug is my nickname which’s the same pronunciation of “柑桔” in Cantonese( means mandarine/tangerine 🍊) people always ask me this question so I explain at once here🤣 You can just call me Gum, easier to remember, right?😛
You may visit my instagram acc. @_.gumgug._ to know more about me or direct message me on ins. https://www.instagram.com/_.gumgug._/
don’t ask me when will I back home. I have no idea neither
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Because of covid, I changed my planning of working holiday and started solo travel and workaway. Actually in the beginning I just want to escape from HK. After I started travel, I realised that there are too many things waiting me to explore. So I decided to continue my journey. Still don’t want to go back yet :p
I’m not a very sociable person (sometimes even anti-social haha.) But during travelling, I think I talk much more than the sum up of my whole life. I met a lot of amazing people and I really enjoy chatting with local people and know more about different culture. I like experiencing the local life more than visiting the tourist spots. For example, the kids in Iceland bring me to run and cycle around in cold winter which you may not experience if you just travelling.
I am not good at planning because I think life always go in an unpredictable way. So my trip usually without a plan and decided everything in last minute. I think that’s what life should be, no plan and full of unexpectedness. From CS, you can always get some useful advice from the others.
still don’t have a chance to host because I’m continuing my journey. wish to do it when I back home. very welcome to ask my advice if you are visiting HK
-going to the sea/mountains alone
-sports esp hiking and diving, play trampoline when I was in high school, want to try all kinds of challenging sport!!
-want to learn surfing, skiing, rock climbing
-photography (mainly analog film)
-deep talk on interesting topics (please argue with me!!)
Not interested in party/drink/smoke/dance
Sorry I’m a boring person ;) Won’t do sth I don’t like just to make people like me
Music, Movies, and Books
pixar movie and Wong Kar Wai’s movie
big fans of cartoon & anime but also all the interesting/meaningful/artistic movies/TV series, no stupid movies please
welcome to ask my recommendation of HK movies/music
Sadly I don’t have time to read recently but always want to pick up this habit. I would say my favourite book is The little prince.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
started to solo travel and eat ice cream at-7°C under the northern light🌌
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you some Cantonese and the difference between Traditional & Simplified Chinese
I was a part time swimming coach for beginners so if you don’t know how to swim I can help you to learn haha
or how to take a photo by yourself without using tripod
love to know more about different culture
love to hear anything about other countries
happy to share sth about Hong Kong
like how shit the government is, on the other hand how good the food and nature
What I Can Share with Hosts
Sometimes I can be silent for the whole night meanwhile I can non-stop talking on different interesting topics(philosophy, sociology, politics, or just stupid questions). I love to listen travelling stories and opinions towards different topics.
or I can be your hiking/ scuba diving buddy. maybe also take some photos for you
I will always keep the place clean because I think this is my responsibility. Although personally I am not a very tidy person xd, I promise I will keep everything all right after using it. Don’t be shy to ask me help for household work, I’m happy to help.
