PHILOSOPHY

"WHY NOT ???"

live at the moment.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I started couchsurfing on my journey to Europe in 2010 April. It is a crazy idea to host/ surf strangers! I love it! Every of my hosts is nice and helpful. They do not only offer me a place to stay, but a HOME! The only problem is, I find difficulties fitting in a hostel now.

As a surfer, I enjoy talking with host, learn some cooking if possible. If I'm quiet, maybe I'm tired at the moment... don't worry =) I get used to lose my ways, but usually I can get to your place before midnight =P If there is anything I can do for you/ bring to you, let me know!

As a host, I had my first sweet surfer in Dublin, before my housemate rejected Couchsurfing. And I got the chance to host in Hong Kong when I spent 1-month "vacation" (from travelling) in January 2011.

** I got my first negative reference in June 2011. So you know how rude I am ^__^ We can understand if you change your plan, and cannot host/ meet us, but please do us a favor: tell us earlier (3 hours is enough, if we're not on the way), so we can find another place OR tell us a contact number of a hostel/ pension. Many Thanks =)

p.s. We didn't contact anymore, but the reference was changed for a few times (negative-neutral-negative-neutral-negative-neutral-negative...) =P

******
to guests:
please don't bother to bring gifts/ spend some time with me if you are free, sleep well, just enjoy your stay here
