About Me

Hiiiii this is Julianne, an Asian & International Studies student from Hong Kong and a diving instructor who was based in Cebu, Philippines :) I started my journey in 2019 and now on my way again! Love the sea and the mountains as well as meeting new friends for new adventures.

Well, I’m those people who can’t stay in the same place for a long long time. I travelled to a few countries since I started solo travelling at 17 and lived in 3 of them. I meant to stay in Egypt for 3 months then go back for my studies but ended up working in the Philippines. It has been the 9th month diving everyday and the 5th staying in this little town. So I’m looking for some new adventures and changes in my life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like adventures and travelling a lot. There’s no perfect way of life that’s perfect for everyone. For me, it’s to live happily and freely. I have been trapped in Hong Kong for 3 years (besides the 4 months in Brunei Darussalam) so I have always been asking myself: what do I really want to do?
I want to be on my way again!

I’ve met a lot of nice hosts and friends from Couchsurfing or hostels which helped me a lot (haha it was some truly amazing adventures). Whenever and wherever I have my own apartment, I would like to help other travellers in return.

(If you want to stay with me please send me a request with some texts, do not just send me a ‘hi’ and way before your trip please 🙏🏽)
