About Me


I have been practicing vegetarian diets at the moment.


I'd love to meet new people and make new friends. Surely I love traveling to the new places.
Although I try to meet new people at the new place I've realized it is hard to make new friends. So I decided to use CouchSurfing to help me meet new friends


I do want to see all people around world as many as possible and learn how they think and live their lives. My Engish is not perfect but still trying to improve to learn the World with using it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I heard of cs when I was joining English course in London. I was very skeptical to stay at the stranger's place. I'm still a bit nervous but mostly I think cs could make my journey fantastic. ;) Hopefully I will host and help another friends from all over the world.


It has been a while to host some guests and to be hosted as well. I completely love both hosting and surfing the hosts.

To be first, I could enjoy real life on my journey with local friends, which was really great.

Moreover, I could have met lots of wonderful friends n learned great parts of their view of life.


I love reading books and listening to music. I know it could sound boring lol I'd like to talk about books and many thingns with new friends.
I Like learning new languages So I'm practicing French, Chinese and Japanese. However, it is hard to master foreign languages.

Recently I've started to learn how to make costume with sawing machine, which is really brilliant and amusing. I've fallen in love with learnig design and fashoin stuff as well.

If anyone interested in fashion or art, it would be wonderful to have a chat and conversation about that.

Music, Movies, and Books

I actually love all kinds of music.

Though, my favorite music genre is Jazz. I've visited New orleans to feel and listen to real jazz. That was really awesome enough to make me miss the city all the time.
I do love reading books and talking about them with friends.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've volunteered in Oxfam books shop when I stayed in London. I want to help people and know how people live all over the world.

Teach, Learn, Share

What I can share is my experience of my life.
I am quite old and I had not only good experiences but also trial and errors to be able to give some good advices to my friends for free. ;)
