About Me

Or host for my own to learn the culture from each other.

WHAT WE CAN offer u as return?
We provide u comfy accommodation, meals, laundry, internet ... of course our warmth heart. If I have spare time would be pleasure to take u hang around.

***Be alert, I really dislike dirty guy and lazy person and night life lover.

Others:
Warning :
***** everyone have to know this case if want to be our volunteer or surf my place :(
1. I have kicked out a German guy who spoke rude to me twice at last Christmas. Before, I agreed to hosted him for a 10 days. However, he became behaved rude after the dinner at the first day night then behaved the same at the second night again ... I guess he was some mentally illness so asked him to leave at the morning of the third day morning.
The case was upset me very long that don't like to help any travelers .....

2.I have kicked a Croatian lady out from my school on 9.5.2017 . She agree to be volunteer to help painting job in school for 4 days. I tried my best to take care her everything as a return, however, she only worked one day but wanted to enjoy her sightseeing ... then left her 2 super heavy luggage at our place then enjoy her free time ( because she cannot carry them to travel).

After 2 days she came back to take back her heavy luggage. She was so naive that ask my staff to help shoulder her luggage for going to the bus for going to airport. Of course, we can help ... but not for a liar and selfish person. I asked my staff to help drop it on road side where in front of our school that's all. It is so sad to meet someone who behave like this :(
If you don't like offer your hand, pls not ask to be a volunteer for us. I sometime host people free in my place. I have hosted a French young men half year when he worked for a working holiday. He behaved really polite and help everything in house ....
*** don't try to use people for your travelling. Go to find someone who have a similar interest and character.

We offer:
As a volunteer in the dormitory, that we will provide u 4 meals a day ; if u come to my apartment, please prepare your food and better to bring your sleeping bag for my convenient.
*** If possible, u can bring some candy for the students, it is NOT a must, but sure not for me.

** Again, don't ask be a volunteer just because you need accommodation, pls be sincere to everyone.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

1. I host volunteers in our students dormitory. Or,
2. I will host travelers on my own. Howerver, I am not prefer to host a freeloader or person who only just surf and never host, so don't ask, pls.

I like to surf if somebody who like to meet and chat. and will help anything as return.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have being gotten a lot of weird n amasing things of my life, so it is difficult to choose ONE, many places were so beautiful and special,like Machupicchu in Peru, Masai Mara in Kenya, the big fall of Iguassu in Argentina, mountains in Pakinstan ... full of special experience who won't believe. Would like to talk once we can meet in the future.

Really long time ago, I myself went to hike alone at a mountain in Nepal for 2 weeks alone, only use with a poor hand-writing map, a sleeping bag in my backpack. There has no guesthouse anywhere, so I slept with very kind village locals. It might be the most memorable experience of me in life.

Another is, I were travelling alone in S.A. at 1995 for 8 months. Met and saw a lot of wonderful scenery,desert, lakes, big water-falls, historical sites and many unexplanation places of Peru and Bolivia. I have been stolen in bus, robbied by a group criminals with guns on bus, also nearly being kidnapped ... btw, I still survive!
