About Me

South African born girl living in Beijing. Enjoys all things spontaneous and active. Love hiking and doing sports, diving etc. Friendly and sensitive to others so will not be rude/noisy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I created this account 3 years ago and never used it. Back then I couldn't host but now can host in a very cool, traditional hutong in Beijing!]
I have vacation now (August 2016)so would like to try CS and see what it is like :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I wanna learn different languages! Right now I am learning Mandarin and loving it. I have a TEFL certificate and can help out with improving your English skills, if that's something you're interested in :) I also love going to art galleries, museums so can share that interest as Beijing has plenty historic spots.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Can share experiences in Beijing. Beijing is very big with lots to see and myself and my Chinese roommate can make it easier and fun. Share tips and ideas and good company.
