About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meet amazing people from all corners of the world, and soak up as many stories & experience as possible!

ABOUT ME

Hi everyone!

It's great to join the CS community! I was born in Taiwan moved to Cape Town in 2010. What you should know about me:

I am outgoing and friendly, which can be crazy for the new people I meet because they are always surprised at how open and warm I am! I live life to the fullest, and I want to look back when I am 50+ and know that I had no (well, virtually none) regrets.

I looove traveling, it's a passion and a lifestyle I can't imagine not having. During my "free" times, you will find me checking out new neighborhoods in the city I live in, enjoying free concerts / cultural events / festivals, and just having a great time overall.

I look forward to welcoming CSers to Cape Town~ And to meet other CSers when I get a chance to travel~

PHILOSOPHY

Own only what you can carry with you; know language, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag. - Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have been very fortunate to meet the most kind, loving CSers here in Cape Town - even more incredible to have them as some of my best friends!!

I am a Cape Town CS moderator: http://www.couchsurfing.org/group.html?gid=1425, we constantly post up get togethers/braais/ sundowners at the beach, or just exploring activities around the city.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have couchsurfed during my travels in Asia, South America, and South Africa. This includes staying over with friends' friends, or through new people I meet in the city during my travels.

I truly enjoy hearing people's life stories, because I grow so much through seeing from different perspectives~

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have hiked the highest mountain in South East Asia (Mt. Kinabalu in Malaysia), scaling cliffs at 4am with moonlight shining our ways in hope to catch the sunrise! The view was dream like, with clouds surrounding us.... absolutely beautiful
