I have two passions in life and they are traveling and teaching English to non-native speakers. I am new to traveling but I love it and I plan on visiting every continent (well, maybe not Antarctica) in order to experience different cultures.
I am friendly, open-minded, fun, easygoing, passionate, and motivated. I love to meet new people and experience new things. Traveling is the only way to do this and it provides a kind of thrill and excitement to life!
Also, I live on the beautiful island of American Samoa in the South Pacific. It's a U.S. territory and is not widely visited by tourists, but I would love to host couchsurfers.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Paris,Seoul, Chengdu, and Irkutsk: all were awesome! I've also hosted couchsurfers in Texas at my parents' home as well as at my apartment in Shanghai. I would love to host couchsurfers in American Samoa, where I currently live.
I like to spend time with friends outdoors hiking mountains or going to the park to have a picnic. I also like scuba diving, working out, dancing, reading, museums, beaches, lakes, etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I hiked Huashan in Xian, China. There is nothing like a view from the top of a mountain. Panda park in Chengdu, sleeping in a gher in Mongolia, and drinking snake baijiu in China.
