About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

I am really quite complex and simple all at the same time. I had been thinking a lot about our world and now I try to cut things down to being simple and happy. I like tea and nature.

PHILOSOPHY

Getting that right balance between love and freedom, the east and the west, emotions and logic, individualism and collectivism, travel and work, left and right brain, male and female, spirituality and desires, myself and others.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I joined relatively early and benefited greatly, so I wanted to bring it to Taiwan and named it 沙發客。 I was organizing a lot of activities when I was in living in Shanghai.

I shared a lot and I like people who know how to share and exchange!
