About Me


Meeting up different peoples are the greatest part of travelling to me, especially through couchsurfing.
Im from a county of Tianjin, along the coast of China. Many ppl at this place, including me, grew up with Chinese cross talk and with a specific sense of humour. Seafood and 'riverfood' are available throughout the year.
Please feel free to reach me on wechat: johnwhao for sleep-over or hang-out, but please mention you are from CS and share your CS profile page to me before request.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To me, connection with local people are the best way to know a place. It will also make it a specific experience. Im glad to makes friends from near and afar.

Music, Movies, and Books

As for piano, I play classical music mostly, but I do enjoy many genre, as long as it's melodic XP. I used to join choir and a cappella. Also, I listen much Christian music.
Im a very slow reader
I love animation movies

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Im not sure whether it's amazing, but definitely 'impressive'. As I volunteered along the coast of Kenya for conservational research right after my college graduation, two churches got bombarded in the city next to our village. I got to know it on that very day when browsing through BBC and saw the city next to us. It was suspected to be conducted by those from our neighbor Somalia.... Locals were pretty much used to it, but I was freaked out~ I asked my church friends from HK to support me right away. It was a big shock to my family, too.

Teach, Learn, Share

Im glad to share my experiences and exchange culture. I can teach piano n music (n maybe some singing, too). I can teach Chinese cuisine of Tianjin n Cantonese (粤菜). Im open to know about local culture and learn different languages.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share the languages I know.
We can share on music.
