About Me

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I was introduced to this website and find it very helpful for travellers. I enjoy showing people around my city.


With a Zen spirit of being, getting to know life in various forms.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

1) Overlooking the Himalayas from a jet plane. 2) Observing cremation in a holy temple in Nepal, watching the video of celestial burial of Tibetan people. 3) Standing for 6 hours in the freezing wind at Times Square with millions of strangers on the New Years Eve, getting to know each other a bit more and becoming friends. 4) Participating in couchsurfing and rediscover Nanjing (my hometown) with my guests. 5) New findings in my classes every semester.

Amazing feelings in everyday life.
