About Me

Young professional living and working in Hong Kong.

At weekends I boulder and roller skate.

Passionate about international affairs, travel, history, languages and culture.

Always on the lookout for wildlife in new countries.

Will pet any dog I see.

Love to travel solo; love to meet new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I probably spent all my money on plane tickets.

Some couches are super comfy.

You might be really cool!
