About Me

My English name is Elaine and I am from Taiwan. I am an expat in Bangkok.

I am a vegetarian. love animals and the nature. Love hiking specially. I believe in minimalism. I love traveling light, backpacking, traveling on foot, and hiking/camping. I love cultural and historical stuffs and places. Love art and music in any forms. Besides this, I also have great interest in photographing with traditional film materials using compact cameras.

All in all, a curious and very open-minded person.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

At some point you'll realize. It's not about how many countries you've been to, or how often you change from places to places. It's what you learn, who you meet and how you experience along the way. It's meaningful not collecting names of the cities but names of the citizens. What can be a better way to live through the world than couch surfing?


traditional film photography (35mm), travel, sing, hike, camping. I love pets, kids, collecting post cards, and cooking!
