About Me

I was born in Chongqing and grew up there. Chongqing is the hottest and almost the biggest city in China, it has the most beautiful girls in China and the authentic hotpot. Chongqing people are very nice and warm-hearted, if I am in Chongqing, you can hang out with me. In August 2014, I came to USA to continue my graduate study in geography. I like to make friends and share.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My major is geography. I did a lot of field study as an undergraduate student and our teachers took us to another state to study as well as travel at least one week in each semester. I love travelling and I can learn a lot from these local people when I couchsurf. Only by living and talking with these local people, I can learn more about their culture, habit and so on. It is better for me to couchsurf than live in the hotel. I live to share my stories with the host and I am also very open-minded to hear other people's stories. That is why I am here.


I have a lot of interests. Music, outdoors, Table tennis, Chinese chess, majiang.
Hiking, travelling, cooking, books. Good at Chinese cooking.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like light&pop music. Makes my heart peaceful.
Love cartoon and science fiction moves.
I love story books, like to try all kinds of books except Marx.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I hitchhike 2000 miles from Chengdu to Lasha, Tibet. Amazing experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

I taught math, chemistry, physics and English as a private tutor in China before. I also taught geography in high school.

Since I come to America, I like to learn culture from people coming from different countries. It is so interesting.

I travelled a lot in China, if you are interested in China, I can share a lot stories with you. I still couchsurf and hitchhike in China. Hitchhiking in China is safe. On some roads, we have that tradition.
