About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Go to see the world, meet people and appreciate life :)

ABOUT ME

When I work I work hard and serious, while on traveling , i'm another one.

As the others say, I'm a typical Capricorn :
"talkative and quiet, serious and silly, friendly and cold."

Just define when you meet me in real life :)

PHILOSOPHY

The best way to predict your future is to create it.
KEEP WALKING! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Knew CS "existence" from a young nomad blogger
Up to now, I have hosted, couched and met many CSers, shared our stories, travel tips, experience and kept in touch with some good friends :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

1. As a Surfer

I was hosted by a PR couple. My first and best experience with CS! I was picked up at airport( while taxi was so rare (!) I was lucky to get truly kind host even I was a " newbie". ( still intend to come back to "court" the Prince =))
Since then I'd like to raise the CS spirit :) encourage more people on traveling! yolo
